Top Misconceptions Most Car Owners Make

Car problems can be overwhelming, and though we would like to figure it ourselves, it is best to take it to a professional. At Paul Campanella’s Auto & Tire Center in Northern Delaware, you can trust the service to be efficient and fast, eliminating all the stress that typically comes along with getting your car fixed. Campanella’s uses only ASE certified technicians to solve your car’s problem as well as save you money on some common misconceptions that will normally drive you crazy. What are some of the top misconceptions when it comes to fixing cars?

Changing Oil

An oil change can seem like a piece of cake to do on your own at home after watching a few youtube videos. However, there is a little more to it than just replacing your oil. At Campanella’s Auto & Tire Center, they offer a 26-point inspection with your oil change. New oil filters and fuel filters are also included after topping off ALL of the auto’s fluids. These services are backed by a warranty to ensure quality maintenance.


Proper tire rotation and balance is commonly overlooked when maintaining a car or truck. With the correct tire services, your vehicle can increase in gas mileage as well as decrease wear and tear on tires and suspension. Campanella’s offers alignment, pressure check, rotation, and shock replacement to take appropriate care of your tires.


Many drivers will not pick up on the warning signs that their brakes need servicing. Other than the warning light, look out for a grinding sound when pushing on the brakes. A pulsing brake pedal or an abnormally hard/soft brake pedal typically means they might need replacement. Brake issues are very unsafe to drive with, get the service you need down at Campanella’s in Wilmington, DE for all your maintenance to avoid the common mistakes most drivers will make.
