Which Is Cheaper? Maintaining Your Old Car vs. Buying A New One

Which Is Cheaper? Maintaining Your Old Car vs. Buying A New One

Welcome to April’s blog! We’re looking over the pros and cons of maintaining your car as opposed to buying a new one when things begin to fall apart. It’s straightforward to tell where an auto mechanic stands: fix your car. But we often see customers bringing in vehicles that are just beyond fixing. They’ve waited too long, pushed it too far, and done the kind of irreparable damage to their engine that makes us wince. We have to advise them that they’d be better off getting a new car and letting go of their current model.  The unfortunate part about that is how much money the client is losing. Preventative maintenance saves money. It costs considerably less to bring your car to the auto mechanic at regular intervals and trust their instruction. You should believe a qualified mechanic when they tell you, “You’ll need to get that timing belt replaced in a few months,” than to drive for an additional year and then have the timing belt ... read more

We’re known around Huntington Beach or Fountain Valley as the AC experts. So what makes HB Auto & AC the place to go to first for air conditioning auto repairs?
