When you buy a new car, there is something called “regularly scheduled maintenance” that you are supposed to have done at certain times and milages. This is not because there is something wrong with your car, or because the dealer thinks there will be something wrong, but rather to make sure that your new car does not develop a problem. This is a lot like a dental cleanings and exams. Dr. Ardelean, Clinton Township, MI dentist perform these so your mouth does not develop a problem that will affect how you feel and look, and just like with a new car, it is your responsibility to schedule these checkups when you are supposed to have them done.
