The more you drive, the more the components in your car will wear down. This means that there will be a greater chance for things to potentially go wrong. If you notice any of these issues with your car, it’s time to quickly make an appointment at our Chevy service center.

Unusual Smells

Anything out of the ordinary with your vehicle is generally not a good thing. If there’s a weird smell – especially if it’s an exhaust odor – you need to have your car looked at right away. This could indicate that exhaust fumes are getting inside your car, which is extremely hazardous to your health.

Odd Sounds

Strange sounds are another thing you need to be aware of. For example, a squealing noise when you apply the brakes could indicate that the brake pads are getting thin. This isn’t an immediate cause for concern, but if you hear a grinding sound, this could be much more serious. This could mean that the pad has worn completely through, which makes driving dangerous.

Poor Performance

Has your powerful car suddenly become meek and mild going up hills or passing slower traffic? Has your gas mileage plummeted? Does your car veer to one side or another on perfectly straight roads? These are all signs that maintenance is necessary.

It Won’t Start

If you can’t even get your car turned on, this is a problem. Fortunately, it may just be due to a dead battery, which is usually an easy fix. If a jump-start doesn’t work, however, there’s an underlying issue that will need to be addressed.

Whatever the problem is with your car, our service team at Zeigler Chevrolet in Schaumburg, IL, can diagnose and fix it. Contact us to make an appointment.
