Owning a vehicle is a huge responsibility - not only do we have to take measures to drive safely and carefully every day, fill our tanks with gas to get where we need to go, park legally and accurately, and get a car wash every now and again - we also have to make sure that we are staying on top of our car's regular maintenance and service.
When it comes to vehicle maintenance, the best way to understand it is by thinking of a very poorly maintained car. If your car isn't taken care of, systems will start failing and it won't perform well, definitely not as well as it did before. The better care you take of your vehicle, the longer it will last and the more reliable it will be.
Maintenance can mean a number of things, from regular inspections to oil changes and other recommended services by the car manufacturer. While you may know that there are many different maintenance items that your vehicle will need in its lifetime, here are some that you should never ignore:
- Oil Changes
- Filter Changes
- Fluid Flushes (transmission, coolant, power steering, brakes, etc.)
- Brake Inspections and Service
- Spark Plug Replacement
- A/C Refrigerant and System Inspection
- Tire Inspection and Service
- Wheel Alignment
These are just a few of the maintenance items that should never be ignored. If your car is due for a service, don’t hesitate to stop by the professionals here at Revolution Motor Works today!
