What can you do to maximize your vehicle's life span?
Preventative maintenance is the care and protection of your vehicle against potential major auto repairs. The most common and costly way to see money wasted on repairs is negligence through regular service intervals. Certain manufacturers void warranty coverage if preventive maintenance is not performed on specific parts and components. The intervals at which you are supposed to maintain your car have been designed to improve its reliability, durability, and resale value. These service intervals may arrive sooner than you expect based upon your driving conditions. Most engines actually thrive during long drives, for example, short commutes can hurt a vehicle. Severe driving includes driving short commutes, experiencing stop-and-go traffic, and carrying heavy cargo. However, your environment can also reinforce severe driving. Your vehicle can be affected by hot or cold weather, mountainous or rough roads, and dusty or salty environments. Adhering to a rigid service schedule can keep your vehicle operating at maximum efficiency for years to come because of these innumerable factors.
Critical components can be negatively impacted by road hazards over time, as vehicle components and parts naturally wear out. If you stick to the preventive maintenance schedule in your vehicle owner’s manual, you will help make sure that your car always runs at peak performance. The maintenance for your vehicle may include an inspection of the steering and suspension components, fluid filters, belts and hoses, brakes and axles, and other parts depending on the mileage of the service interval. The level of vital vehicle fluids may be checked during routine maintenance. You may also need to check the following things regularly, as specified in your owners manual: exterior and interior lights, windshield wiper blades, the battery, hinges and locks, ball joint wear, exhaust system components, and tire wear and inflation levels.
