We are already deciding on our New Year’s resolutions, and the one at the top of our list is preventative maintenance? Why? Your European car is one of your biggest investments, second to only your home, and the phrase “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” most certainly does not apply to your vehicle. That’s why we think preventative maintenance should be one of your resolutions.

Spring is always welcome after a cold winter. Even though we adore the change of season, there are few things we must be wary of.

During Winter, our cars get kind of beat up. We plow them through the mud, drive on frosty roads, and expose our cars to the worst of the elements. On chilly mornings, we turn the key and rely on our car’s engine to quickly come to life. With Spring and Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we think it is the best time to show your car some love.
