Check Engine Warning & Diagnostics
The diagnostic part of any car engine (exotic & luxury) allows a mechanic to analyze the overall health of the engine. As with all things, maintenance is essential to make the vehicle last longer. If you see any lights come on inside the car, it is an indication to get it into a shop and have it looked at. Other factors that may indicate an engine issue are a decrease in gas mileage, stalling, idling, or even a loss of power while accelerating.
