A car can overheat unexpectedly when the radiator hose springs a leak. Worse, a vehicle may crash if brake fluid runs out of the lines without warning. Sadly, many drivers could learn about problems with hoses, belts, and lines had they requested an inspection at the dealership. Trained technicians can determine if there are any wear and tear.

Belts are durable, but they cannot run forever without eventually fraying and snapping. The owner's manual provides insights into when the drive and timing belts require changing. Drivers in Charlotte should follow the manual's suggestions. Also, it helps to ask technicians to inspect visible belts.

Checking the hoses and lines is wise, too. Hoses can lose coolant even if there is a "mere" pinhole leak. Brake lines may rust and become brittle. A thorough inspection could uncover any problems.
