The Safest Vehicles in 2020

Should I Put Off Repairs?

The answer is NO! Auto Repair Shops have been recognized as an “essential business.” This is a perfect time to get your vehicle repaired and important maintenance done on your vehicle that you would not normally have the time to get done. Not getting essential maintenance done on your vehicle could decrease the life of your vehicle and cause a ripple effect of damages toward your car or truck. While most of your favorite places are closed and not operating as they would during normal times, Peninsula Auto Body remains open and here to serve you and your repair needs. Furthermore, we are offering Curbside Estimates, Virtual Estimates, Free Pick-up, and Free Drop-off.

Change Your Oil

Oil changes are essential to a long-lasting vehicle. Oil-change intervals vary somewhat by make and manufacturer and your vehicle’s intended use. A vehicle that is driven on dusty roads, tows a trailer, or sees a lot of stop-and-go traffic may use the vehicle manufacturer’s “severe service” schedule and need to be changed as frequently as every 3,000 miles. An oil change is a quick, cost-effective service that will extend the life of your vehicle. Use your free time to get your fluids changed so you can ensure that your vehicle is running at its peak.

If the Check Engine Light is On, Get it Fixed!

Have you ever seen that little check engine light come on and just continue driving, acting as though there is nothing wrong with it? Well, you are not alone. Many people are in the same situation, not realizing they are only possibly hurting their vehicle.

Ignoring your check engine light could cause catastrophic failure down the road. Among the most common reasons for a check engine light: Bad spark plugs or ignition coils, a malfunctioning oxygen sensor, catalytic converter problems, or even something as simple as a defective engine thermostat. Sometimes your vehicle will run just fine with the light on. But some problems can cause other, more expensive problems to occur, such as damaging engine internal parts, which in turn can cost you more than what your vehicle is worth. In this case, if you would have gotten the problem fixed when the light first came on, you would have saved hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.]

Body Repair / Paint Job

Now is the perfect time to restore the gleam your vehicle had when it rolled off the assembly line.

Whether it is a major collision repair or a minor bumper gouge or dented fender, your vehicle requires the utmost in care and attention. When you’re considering getting your vehicle repaired, be sure to use a shop, such as Peninsula Auto Body, that includes a full range of auto body repair services to help you get your vehicle back on the road safely.

Clean Your Vehicle Inside and Out

If you are like millions of Americans and are not able to get out and drive daily, it is important that your car is cleaned inside and out to prevent unwanted smells, rust, and damage to the paint of your vehicle. Cleaning or disinfecting the inside of your vehicle would be a smart idea for this time as well, leaving your vehicle smelling like new when you are able to once again get in and drive like normal. Cleaning the outside of your vehicle is important too, cleaning off any winter debris, salt, brine, and dirt underneath the car and on the outside of the car can help prevent rust and buildup of any unwanted damage to the car’s body and paint.

These tips are useful during this time when most people are not on the road like normal, and getting these done will ensure your vehicle is clean and performing at its potential.
