People tend overlook or put off routine car maintenance. The philosophy seems to be if it is not broke do not fix it. While that may be true in some circumstances, car maintenance is not one of them. Do not wait until there is a major problem to take care of your vehicle. Waiting too long can cost you hundreds of dollars or more in major repairs. The best schedule for your car is the one in your cars auto manual. The manual that comes with your car customizes the list especially for the engine in the make and model of your automobile.
Cars have never been cheap, but with the ubiquity of computers and electronics, taking a car to the shop is more expensive than ever. Repairing a car is now more expensive than maintaining a car. In general maintenance works consist of cleaning, refueling, providing proper lubrication, fixing, checking, adjusting wheels and car parts. Proper maintenance is the guarantee of a long life of your vehicle.
Some insurance covers not only roadside assistance but also car maintenance, though they can be more expensive.
But by doing regular maintenance on your car, not only you can save money on car repair, but also enjoy more pleasant drives.
