Your engine does a fine job of running your wheels, but did you know it runs everything else in your car as well? Your serpentine belt is responsible for taking energy from the engine and using it to run all sorts of systems, which means a broken serpentine belt is responsible for all sorts of systems stopping. We here at HGreg Nissan Delray are ready to keep all parts of your car running with our serpentine belt replacement services, and you can trust that we’ll do it right.
The serpentine belt is called such because it snakes around multiple different key parts of your car, including your air conditioning, your alternator, your coolant system, and so much more. This belt has teeth that engage gears in this system to make them run when the engine does, so when the belt snaps, everything else stops. This can lead to multiple problems, ranging from tiny to very large, and so we like to replace the belt before it gets to the breaking point.
Your serpentine belt normally lasts for 50,000 miles or about five years, whichever comes first, but since it’s so vital in keeping so many systems going, you should have it checked two to three times yearly. Catching repairs before they do damage is the best way to save money as a car owner, and our goal here at HGreg Nissan Delray is to keep your car in its best shape and to keep you free of devastating and expensive repairs.
Some people just want to wait and relax while their car is being serviced. We have complimentary Wi-Fi, complimentary snacks and beverages, and flat-screen TVs if that’s your preference. Others want to keep going with their life and disrupting it as little as possible. For them, we provide a courtesy transportation shuttle, rental car services, and business workstations, so no matter what they need to do, they can get it done. We offer everyone a complimentary multi-point inspection so you can know what’s happening in your car, which saves you money from unexpected repairs. Let HGreg Nissan Delray cater to your needs!
