Keep Your Car New

Do you remember how your car was when you first bought it?  Sleek and shiny as it rolled off the lot with great acceleration, beautiful alignment, and everything working just right… seems like only yesterday.  Just like us, our car ages.

It’s important to watch for symptoms of your transmission having issues, and it’s important to get regular tune-ups.  You should make sure to schedule this with your family owned and operated Grisham’s Transmission Center in Nashville, Tennessee. It’s been in business since 1995 for a reason…people love it!

There are ways that you can take care of your car to keep it new and young, though.   You can ask your skilled professional at Grisham’s for some more tips, but here are some of the basics:

  1. Don’t abuse your vehicle.  There are three major ways people abuse their car without even thinking about it.
    • When you’re driving, accelerate softly.  A lot of people punch the gas without consideration and this puts a lot of wear and tear on your transmission.
    • When you get ready to switch gears, come to a complete stop first.   A lot of people don’t bother when they’re coming out of reverse or going into park or even switching to drive. 
    • Watch the weight on your vehicle!  Don’t put too heavy a load too often.  This can put a lot of strain on your transmission and make the life last a lot less.
  2. Keep your transmission cool.  This is one of the most important things you can do for your vehicle.  Don’t let it get too hot, because it’ll make the transmission go a lot faster.  Even though it costs a bit upfront, you’ll be saving lots of money if you get an external transmission cooler instead of letting your vehicle overheat.
  3. Regular service and upkeep.  This goes back again to making sure that you get regularly tuned at Grisham’s Transmission Center.  It’s one of the most important ways to preserve your vehicle’s life and keep it new – like it was when you first drove it home.  Don’t forget!
  4. Get the right experts.   It’s just as important to find professionals who really know what they’re doing as it is to get your regular tune-ups.  At Grisham’s Transmission Center, you can rest easy, knowing that you’re going to be in the hands of professionally trained men and women that are amongst the best that Nashville has to offer.

By following a few simple guidelines, you can keep your car running as smoothly as it did the day that you first drove it off the lot.
