Cinderella Era' of Your Vehicle is No Fairy Tale

Cinderella Era' of Your Vehicle is No Fairy Tale

Once upon a time, buying a new car may have sounded like a dream come true, but keeping your car through the "Cinderella Era" can mean more gold at the end of the rainbow, says the non-profit Car Care Council.

"The smartest way to get a solid return on your vehicle investment is to keep your car through what we call the 'Cinderella Era.' That's the period of time after the payoff when your car is still in great shape and needs only modest repairs," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "With proper care, the typical vehicle should deliver at least 200,000 miles of safe, dependable performance, and that's no fairy tale."

By simply allocating the equivalent of just one new car payment, motorists can cover an entire year's worth of basic maintenance and live happily ever after with their current vehicle. The most common maintenance procedures and repairs to keep a car operating safely and reliably while maintaining its long-term value involve checking the oil, filters and fluids, the belts and hoses, brakes, tires and air conditioning. The council also recommends an annual tune-up and wheel alignment.

"Whether it's an oil change, replacing brakes or new belts and hoses, that periodic repair bill is a drop in the bucket compared to monthly payments on a new car," said White. "The end of the story is that a properly maintained vehicle is safer, more dependable, more fuel efficient, less polluting and more valuable."

TESTIMONIALS

reviewiconKnowledgeable Staff
This review is for Cameron and the technicians that worked on my car. I'm from another city and get most of my vehicle work done there. After learning of a bad alternator and other problems, Cameron worked to find the most efficient solution to honor my warranty from the auto shop at home, in order to complete the work here. Many phone calls, numbers to exchange and decisions later, my car was finished! Cameron was incredibly helpful, kind and respectful. I've never had such good customer service at an auto shop. I would definitely come back next time my car needs service!

I dropped my car off for an oil change. I was asked what time I needed it back and they were accommodating and had the car ready when I needed it! They identified some additional service items and included actual pictures of the problem parts. It's really nice to be able to see the broken parts before authorizing the service! Overall great experience working with the people at University Auto.
