It's the time of the year again ... time of the year wherein both of our cars due for it's periodic maintenance. Though our cars fairly brandnew, with just three years old. It is necessary to have the cars checked, just to be on the safe side. This is what my bestfriend would remind me over and over again.
My bestfriend used to have ford escort , and she learned her lesson the hard way. She was not prepared for any unnecessary expense when she thought simple routinary check up, proved not routinary at all. Good thing her local mechanic was efficient that he immediately suggested replacement of timing belt as well as water pump. If not, road accident might happen and her life might be at stake.
So next time you bring the car for maintenance check, just don't do the routinary check. If parts needed for replacement, follow the advise of your trusted mechanic. It may be an additional expense at start, but it will save your life and a lot of hassles in the future. Better to be safe than sorry.
