Cardiff by the Sea Auto Repair

Vehicles require regularly scheduled maintenance to ensure optimal value, comfort and safety. Although car manufacturers outline a general maintenance schedule, DRIVE AutoCare recommends that these schedules be altered based on road and driving conditions (city, highway, off-road). Failure to properly maintain a car can cause poor handling, lower gas mileage and poorly-timed breakdown that can be devastating and expensive.
