Everyone who owns a car will inevitably have to do repairs on it at some point. All vehicles experience some wear and tear and will need upkeep, not to mention that many people get into minor auto accidents. Even though car owners expect repairs over the years, they always seem to hit the wallet hard and catch people off-guard. Fortunately, at Orthodox Auto Company, we’ve learned a few tricks for saving money on car repairs. We recommend taking these three steps when maintaining your car.

1. Basic Upkeep Is Key

Routine maintenance, such as oil changes, tire rotation, and annual tune-ups, is key to avoiding big and expensive repairs. A car that is properly cared for will run better, last longer, and have fewer major issues.

2. Shop Around

When your car is not working, you usually need it to be fixed right away. A car in need of repairs is often a huge inconvenience to the whole family. This sense of urgency is why most people will pay more for quick service instead of shopping around. However, to save money on auto repairs, it is prudent to compare prices or at least get a second opinion.

3. Buy Used Auto Parts

Many people don’t realize that you can purchase quality used auto parts at a significantly cheaper price than new parts. At Orthodox Auto Company, we buy accident cars or old cars at cash value. We remove the remaining quality usable parts, make sure they’re in good condition, and then sell them to customers like you for a fraction of the cost of a new part.
