You’re driving along, going about your day when suddenly your car sounds a tone, so you look at your dashboard to see that your check engine light is on. Unfortunately, that means something is wrong, but you don’t know what it is in particular. Wanting to save themselves not only the trip to the mechanic itself but also the amount of money it will cost to fix whatever is wrong, many people ignore this notification. Don’t make that mistake. If that occurs, come to Savage Hybrid Shop when you need auto repair in Philadelphia.
In fact, you should check your engine when prompted because you will:
- Save Money – By neglecting your check engine light, you might save some money in the short term, but you could be costing yourself even more money in the long run. If you let the problem linger—whatever it may be—it could get worse or cause even more issues that will need to be addressed later.
- Save Lives – Obviously, your check engine light came on for a reason and if you don’t get your vehicle checked right away, it could mean that the potential for you to get in an accident is also increased. Inevitably, not getting the problem diagnosed and continuing to drive your vehicle may be putting your life and the lives of others on the road at risk.
- Solve the Mystery – We vow that our diagnosis technology is top of the line. By running our tests, we’ll get to the bottom of why the light went on. It could be something as little as a loose or damaged gas cap. If it’s something more serious that doesn’t need immediate attention, we can schedule an appointment down the road that’s more convenient for you.
Our certified staff highly recommends taking your automobile in for a diagnostic test as soon as possible if prompted to do so. Don’t risk it.
