While it’s probably not the first thing you think of when it comes to your car/van/truck/SUV’s health, your vehicle’s undercar does require regular maintenance.
Your exhaust system needs to be functioning properly in order to avoid potential engine trouble. You also don’t want to wake up your whole neighborhood when you’re driving down the street at night because of a spluttering engine sound, so be sure to get your muffler inspected every so often to avoid an embarrassingly loud ride.
Rotating your tires regularly is also a good way prevent uneven tread wear. Uneven tread occurs because most vehicles don’t distribute weight evenly between the front and rear tires. Typically, front tires deteriorate quicker than their rear counterparts due to location as well as engine weight. By having tire rotations performed regularly, tire wear will be distributed more evenly and tires won’t need to be changed out as frequently.
In addition to extending tire life, regular tire rotation services can also help improve your gas mileage as tires that are well-maintained reduce rolling resistance, which impacts your vehicle’s performance and MPG usage.
