Vehicle maintenance tips

Nobody wants a flat tire when they drive, so it is important to regularily check the tire pressure on their car. In fact, if you drive a car you should regularily check:

  • Tire pressure: once a month
  • Vehicle oil: one a month
  • Transmission fluid: every 6 months
  • Windshield wiper fluid level: once a month
  • Power steering fluid level: once a month

So, basically, it is ideal to check most of that routine vehicle maintenance every month. In fact, if you simply pick a day, say the first of every month, to check your vehicle and its tire pressure, oil, fluid level, and even see how the air cabin filters are doing, then you should be more than good to go. However, you can also ask your vehicle service team to do it for you as well.
