For the month of extending your care to your loved ones, why not try to extend your care to a non living entity that serves you daily? The four wheeled vehicle that takes your places. Yes, your car. It deserves a little care as well. Taking care of your car doesn’t mean that you have it serviced every time something wrong comes up with it. Think of spending a little on it and it can actually save you a lot of headaches and make a great year on the road.
Whether it be bought brand new or through the course of car auctions or online car sales, your car deserves to be taken care of. Think of it as safeguarding an investment. It is recommended to follow the tips below to routinely maintain your car:
- Monthly: check your tires, lights and windshield washer fluid for pressure and condition
- Every three (3) months: check engine oil, filter, levels of fluids like automatic transmission, power steering and brake. Also include battery and cables, belts and hoses.
- Every six (6) months or miles: check chassis lubrication and windshield wipers be replaced.
- Every twelve (12) or 12,000 miles: check brakes, spark plugs, coolant and steering and suspension.
It is indeed a responsibility of every car owner to take care of his car. Yes, it can be expensive and time consuming but the investment you make today will save you money along the way.
