At Landry Automobiles in Laval, we're committed to meeting all your automotive needs, whether it's buying a new or used vehicle, or servicing your car. The proof? Here are a few practical tips to help you save on inevitable car repairs!

1. Choose your mechanic carefully
Cars aren't the only things you can store for? mechanics too! Don't systematically entrust your vehicle to the first person you meet: ask around to find a professional you can trust? who won't take advantage of the fact that you know nothing about mechanics to sell you unnecessary services! Ask your friends and family for references.

2. Perform preventive maintenance
Take a good look at your owner's manual and follow its recommendations for maintaining your car (on oil change frequency or tire rotation, for example). Don't wait for mechanical failures to occur: have your car inspected and tuned up regularly. Although they cost money, regular maintenance will save you astronomical repair bills. You'll see, it's a win-win situation!

3. Don't leave problems lying around
Does your car make funny noises? Do you feel you have to apply the brakes more than usual? Don't let small problems become big ones: act quickly when something seems wrong. You'll probably end up with a smaller bill if you take matters into your own hands before the situation deteriorates any further.

4. Put your hand to the dough? if you can!
Of course, changing the oil, wiper blades or tires yourself, or checking the spark plugs, is a sure-fire way to save money... as long as you know what you're doing! When in doubt, it's best to call in a professional. After all, you'll save absolutely nothing by creating new problems or aggravating those you were clumsily trying to solve?

5. Compare prices
Finally, if your car requires costly repairs, don't hesitate to ask for a second opinion and compare prices before entrusting your car to a mechanic.
