Tune Up Sarasota

5 Benefits of a Car Tune Up in Sarasota


A car tune up in Sarasota is all about one critical thing: PREVENTION! That is because it’s opportunity for skilled and experienced mechanics to peek under the hood — and everywhere else for that matter — in order to proactively identify potential issues before they become big problems.

If you think that tune ups are optional — or worse, a waste of money — then here are five key benefits that will change your mind:

1. Tune Ups Improve Safety

The most important aspect of a tune up is that it helps keep you, your passengers, and other drivers safer. Think of it like getting a regular check-up at the doctor’s office. You will either walk out with a clean bill of health, or at the very least you will gain a clear understanding of what is required to boost your wellness as quickly and effectively as possible. 

2. Tune Ups Increase Fuel Efficiency

With gas prices constantly rising and no real alternative on the horizon (yes electric cars are coming but they are not the mainstream yet!), anything that helps us lower costs at the pump is welcome news — especially since gas prices in Southwest Florida recently spiked to a 3-year high. A tune up that takes care of something as simple and inexpensive as replacing a dirty air filter, or fixing a slow leak on a tire, could boost your fuel efficiency by up to 20 percent!

3. Tune Ups Improve Performance

Replacing worn-out spark plugs, belts, fluids, plug wires, the distributor cap, the ignition rotor (as applicable), and other low-cost parts can significantly improve your car’s performance. Instead of sputtering and stalling, you will be enjoying a smooth, trouble-free ride. 

4. Tune Ups Help the Environment

Sarasota is renowned for many things, such as our world-class beaches, our incredible parks, our amazing nightlife, our ultra-friendly citizens, and the list goes on. Sadly, however, we also make a pretty dubious list, too: we are second (behind Tampa-St. Petersburg) as the smoggiest area in the state. The good news is that getting tune ups make you part of the solution by lowering your vehicle’s emissions. Mother Nature will thank you!

5. Increase Resale Value 

Virtually all prospective buyers — individuals and dealers — insist on seeing a car’s service history before they will even consider making an offer. If they see that a car has received regular tune-ups over the years, they will be much more interested vs. if they see that little (if anything) has been done outside of oil changes, tire rotations, and taking care of any major repairs.

The Bottom Line

The best way to look at a tune up is to view it as an investment instead of an expense — one that helps you improve safety, increase fuel efficiency, improve performance, support the environment, and increase resale value.
