Budget for Maintenance in FORT WORTH

Posted June 12, 2022 11:13 AM

Sometimes busy FORT WORTH residents dream about going back to the “simpler” days of our grandparents. But if you could travel back in time and take a road trip around TX in a Model T, you might change your mind. The improved designs and quality of today's automobiles have significantly reduced the amount of time FORT WORTH residents spend at the side of the road during breakdowns. With proper maintenance, today's vehicles can stay on the road longer than ever before.

Some of those improvements, however, have led to higher repair costs. For example, older cars often broke down from vapor lock. Gas vaporized while traveling from the gas tank to the fuel pump. No gas, no power. The car quits going. The solution was simple — you just sat by the road until the car would start up again. Today's FORT WORTH drivers would hardly tolerate that kind of inconvenience, and it's likely that yesterday's FORT WORTH drivers didn't care much for it, either. So on today's vehicles, the fuel pump is actually located inside the gas tank. Problem solved. No more vapor lock. The downside is that now it costs a lot more to repair or replace a fuel pump at FORT WORTH area auto service centers.

FORT WORTH drivers certainly should be grateful for the improvements in auto design that keep us off the side of the road, but it comes at a price. Vehicle care in TX  simply costs more than it used to. So if you think about it, FORT WORTH drivers can avoid many vehicle repairs by preventive maintenance. If we plan for maintenance, we can avoid a lot of costly repairs.

Just a bit of auto advice from Westmoreland Transmissions: If you like new vehicles and can afford them, then buy them. But if you are buying a new vehicle every few years because you're afraid of the higher repair costs for older vehicles, then you ought to take a second look at the numbers. You can save a lot of money on car payments and TX auto insurance with an older vehicle and preventive auto maintenance can help you avoid most car repair bills. And if you budget for preventive maintenance you have done at Westmoreland Transmissions, it can become as routine as a car payment — only a whole lot less!

Testimonials

, 08/01/2022
Westmoreland Transmissions was the best and smartest decision I made for my vehicle repair. The transmission on my Tahoe went out on my way to work on a Friday morning. I was only able to drive about 5 mph and was able to make it to a transmission shop. That morning I was told that they were going to put me on top of the list and I would get a call by 1 pm at the latest. I waited till 3 pm to call since no one called me back but no answer. They did call me Monday morning telling me that the transmission would need to be replaced and would not be a good idea to rebuilt it. It would take 3 to 4 weeks and the cost seem to be super high. I called Westmoreland for a second opinion and Bob gave me a more reasonable cost for replacement or rebuilt. I called a tow truck to pick up my vehicle and have it moved to Westmoreland that same day (not even a block away). I went and talked to Bob after it was dropped off and decided to have it rebuilt. Bob said it would be completed by the end of the week and it was. Bob called me on Thursday to let me know that it was completed and I picked it up on Friday. Today is the 2nd day that I have driven it since I was out of town for a week. I do feel a little issue but hoping it's just getting settled in, if it continues I will contact Bob, hoping it will not be the case. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, experienced and fast service at the best cost contact Bob at Westmoreland Transmissions. He is the Best!
