I recently took my car in to Simard's shop for a checkup- especially regarding the idle, which was sometimes acting up upon making a stop. A thirty-point inspection was done on the car, with a special focus on searching for the idle problem. Being a 2004 model-year car, there were some maintenance issues that were recommended for the car. But nothing in dire need of repair, including the idle. I was told that I could safely drive the car and wait until the car's computer triggered a code for them to review. Or they could further pursue the idle problem straightaway. I chose to hold off on more tests for now, having been reassured that the idle issue was not yet severe enough to cause other problems. It was good to know where I stood with my car-maintenance needs, so that I could budget accordingly and plan to leave the car in the shop at a convenient time. Also it was good to have some peace of mind regarding the status of my car's reliability.
