Well, why not? Why not kill two birds with one stone with car wash repair services while you wait or come back later after you have done a spot of shopping not too far away, or after a few days, as recommended by the car mechanic. Not too far away, within walking distance owing to the fact that you would no longer have the direct use of your vehicle. But then again, is it not always possible for your service provider to provide you with a courtesy vehicle while your own car is being seen to.
That’s only if you are going to be without your car for the next few days. That’s only if the repairs required are that complex. It needs time to do a proper and thorough job. Those that have been through this before will have learned their lesson by now. If you never had to go through with this, let it serve as a warning to you as well, a friendly warning, mind you. Instead of waiting for engine bust-ups to happen, why not just turn your car in already.
Why not just turn your car in a couple of times a year or so for a thorough maintenance inspection? Any issues that are picked up during such routine inspections can be addressed there and then. And in so doing, whatever repairs and new spare parts that may be required need never have to cost you an arm and a leg. Which of course leaves you with plenty of elbow room for a decent cleaning as well.
This is not just a wipe of the windows and a wash of the metal with soapy water. It is the whole shebang, with spit and polish as well.
