Deciding your car isn’t worth fixing is frustrating. No one really wants to deal with a junker.
It might be tempting just to park it somewhere and forget about it. If you own a lot of land, or don’t care about an eyesore, abandoning your vehicle might be the easiest option.
But just leaving your car sitting isn’t wise. If you leave it anywhere besides your land, without permission from the landowner, you’re violating Utah traffic laws.
Also no matter where you leave it, cars are full of pollutants. They never decompose. You’ll be dealing with a rusted hunk of junk decades from now.
Let’s face it, no one likes spending money on car repairs! That’s why keeping on top of preventive maintenance is essential.
Think about it this way—getting regular checkups from a doctor is recommended to keep your body healthy. These checkups are preventive. They’re meant to spot small problems before they turn into something more serious.
And just like your body needs regular checkups, so does your car. Staying up-to-date on preventative maintenance will keep your car running longer.
It’ll also prevent larger problems, and save you money in the long run. And who doesn’t want that?!?
