General Automotive Preventive Maintenance In Hendersonville, Tennessee
Drivers in Sumner County need to be ready for hills, hollers, watersheds, creeks, snow, ice, and more. Regular maintenance is a necessity.
Middle Tennessee is a very diverse terrain. You have hills and valleys, hollers, and watersheds, gravel roads, dirt roads, paved roads, highways and interstates. The roads here go up and down and around hills. Residents of Sumner County use twice the national average of wheel bearings because of the loads imposed by all of the tight corners in our roads. We don't just have potholes here, some of them are more like "fox-holes". The rough roads and the dirt and gravel roads also take their toll on the ball joints and tie rod ends in your vehicle. Depending on where you live in Hendersonville, Old Hickory, Madison, Nashville or Hendersonville, you are likely to see just as many, (or more) trucks than cars. It’s not uncommon to see grandmothers in duallies or giant 4x4’s and if you ask them about it they will tell you they need it to cross the creek or just to get up their driveway to their house.
Driver’s in Hendersonville are also hard on their braking systems. Many of the “hills” here are considered small mountains in other parts of the country. There are very few roads that have a shoulder and many of the roads here will send you down a cliff if you run off of the road. We are very serious about our auto repairs. I would rather give a client a loaded gun than a bad car or truck. Most people don’t shoot that well but any fool can kill a school bus full of kids with a bad car or truck repair.
Our regular oil change/ maintenance service is $42.50. We don't like to call our maintenance services, "oil changes". We prefer to call it a mantenance service because we check the entire car over from end to end to make sure that it is safe and to keep the owners advised BEFORE they need service. We like to tell our customers, "next oil change you might need a serpentine belt, or brakes". letting our customers know about their problems before they need them allows our customers time to prepare and shedule for them. Don't mistake this for those shops that try to sell you a whole car rebuild every time you bring the car in. We look at the belts, hoses, battery connections, tires, shocks and suspension. This whole process normally takes about 15 minutes. As I said before we aren't looking to sell you a new car. We are looking to make sure that your car or truck will be safe for the next 4,000 miles. Temperatures in Hendersonville range from less than 0° to over 100° which means you have to be careful with cooling systems and battery/ charging systems and these need to be looked at during routine maintenance also.
Hendersonville is famous in Tennessee for it’s law enforcement. Simply put: the Hendersonville Police Department and the Sumner County Sherrif's Officers do not play games. They will stop you for almost anything that they see as unsafe or illegal. For this reason your maintenance service is a safety service as well. We make sure our clients lights work properly and that their vehicles are safe to drive. We are a full service automotive repair facility so if we do find needed repairs or if our customers tell us about existing problems we are fully qualified to take care of them. Be safe and keep your car or truck in great shape with regular maintenanance services from Hendersonville Muffler and Brakes.
