Don’t Be Afraid to Take Your Car in Because of Cost

Here at Sun Auto Service, we understand all too well how expensive it can sometimes be to keep your car operating and running smoothly. With all of the other financial obligations in your life, being hit with an expensive car repair can add to your frustration. We’re here to tell you that you have options for taking care of car repairs! We also recommend that it’s best to address repairs right away as opposed to later.


You may or may not prefer the idea of financing your repairs, but doing so can be much better for you and your vehicle in the long run. Ignoring an odd smell or sound coming from your vehicle and hoping it goes away on its own is a potential way to bring on more extensive and  more costly repairs later on. We offer several different financing options so you can get your car back in peak condition without putting your finances out of commission.

Routine Maintenance

Another way to avoid major repairs later on is to take care of minor problems and routine maintenance now. Specifically, we encourage you to bring your vehicle in to us for oil changes, tire rotations, tune ups, new brake pads, air filter changes and windshield wiper blades.  We can help you develop a maintenance schedule, or you may also consult your owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule.

Strange Noises, Smells and Sensations

If you ever smell or hear something out of the ordinary coming out of your car or if there’s a strange rattle or vibration in the steering wheel or undercarriage, your best bet is to take your vehicle in to an experienced mechanic. The sound might be nothing, or it could possibly indicate the beginnings of a problem that needs to be taken care of. Bringing your vehicle to a Sun Auto Service technician will let you know exactly what’s going on under the hood, when it needs to be taken care of and how much it’s likely to cost you. Getting a time frame for the repair is also a good way for you to help budget for associated costs or devising other options for paying for your repairs, if necessary.
