WITH THE ECONOMIC DOWNTURN, IT'S EASY TO WANT TO CUT BACK ON EXPENSES.  HOWEVER, PUTTING OFF REGULAR VEHICLE SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE CAN, SOMETIMES, END UP COSTING YOU MORE, IN THE LONG RUN.  ACCORDING TO THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR AUTOMOTIVE SERVICE EXCELLENCE, YOU SHOULD GET FAMILIAR WITH YOUR OWNER'S MANUAL--AND LEARN ABOUT YOUR VEHICLE'S SYSTEMS AND COMPONENTS.   YOU SHOULD ALSO FOLLOW THE RECOMMENDED SERVICE SCHEDULES--AND KEEP A LOG OF ALL SERVICE AND REPAIRS.  WHEN YOU NEED TO VISIT A REPAIR SHOP, BE READY TO DESCRIBE THE SYMPTOMS OF THE PROBLEM, IN DETAIL; WRITE THEM DOWN IF YOU HAVE TO.  ALSO, LOOK FOR A NEAT, WELL-ORGANIZED FACILITY--WITH VEHICLES IN THE PARKING LOT EQUAL IN VALUE TO YOUR OWN, AND MODERN EQUIPMENT IN THE SERVICE BAYS.  YOU SHOULD ALSO LOOK FOR THE A-S-E SIGN; IT MEANS THAT THE SHOP EMPLOYS A-S-E-CERTIFIED TECHNICIANS, WHO'VE TAKEN AND PASSED NATIONAL COMPETENCY EXAMS.  FOR MORE TIPS AND INFORMATION, LOG ON TO "A-S-E"-DOT-COM.
