Why foreign car repair is different

The automotive world is changing fast, and many old truths about the manufacturing of automobiles are now becoming misconceptions.

It used to be thought that foreign cars were more expensive to repair because their replacement parts had to be shipped in from all over the world.

On the other hand, domestic cars were thought to be less reliable, making them more expensive to maintain over the full life of a car.

But in recent years, many foreign companies have plants in the United States, and some domestic brands have moved production overseas.

So what is the difference for foreign vehicle repair?

Foreign companies do still tend to use more proprietary parts that need to be specially ordered. And many Japanese brands are known for their quality and reliability, while European brands are often recognized for their superior craftsmanship and driving performance.

But no car is perfect, and the mechanics at Milito’s Auto Repair are knowledgeable about foreign car repair. They have the expertise and experience to narrow down the potential list of problems sooner and identify model-specific issues no matter what make or model.

Top Foreign Auto Repair Problems

Every make and model comes with it’s own set of possible problems, but there are some common issues.

Electrical Component Malfunctions — The owners of foreign vehicles like Audis and Saabs have reported that the most common electrical failures include a digital dashboard, console or display, failed tail lamps, and erratic lights.  

Exhaust Gas Recirculation — Also referred to as “EGR,” this system is one that reduces the temperatures in the vehicle’s combustion chamber. When it experiences wear, tear, and carbon build up, these repair problems require the expertise of a foreign auto repair professional.

Oxygen Sensor Replacement — The oxygen sensor is a small electronic sensor inserted into the exhaust system of gasoline-powered BMW vehicles. When it malfunctions, the engine management computer is left guessing as to the amount of oxygen being fed to the engine. This leads to increased fuel consumption and decreased efficiency of the engine and the catalytic converter.

Failure of Ignition Coil or Spark Plug — One of the most common mechanical problems in foreign cars, failure of the ignition coil or spark plugs is also the primary reason engines misfire and could lead to a dead cylinder.

All of these problems and more can be fixed by the service mechanics at Milito’s Auto Repair in Chicago.

Benefits of Getting Regular Check-Ups By Expert Foreign Car Mechanics

Improved Reliability

If you don’t take good care of your vehicle, it won’t be there for you in the future.

While this means oil changes and tire rotations, it also entails having routine check-ups performed by expert foreign car repair mechanics at Milito’s Auto Repair in Chicago.

Higher Resale Value

If you’re looking to sell your foreign car at some point in the future, you’ll want to keep up with routine service and maintenance.

This will help to ensure that it continues to run in optimal condition. Selling it will not only be easier down the road, but much more profitable!

Better Fuel Economy

First, make sure your tire pressure is set to the right levels. This prevents your car from expending unnecessary energy and fuel while moving.

If your air filter is clogged or your fuel lines are leaking, your vehicle’s fuel economy can be negatively affected by up to 20%.
