The only thing more frustrating than experiencing an unexpected car breakdown is finding out that it could have been easily prevented through routine maintenance. As we all tend to postpone our annual doctor’s appointments, we also tend to delay taking our vehicles in for a regular check-up.
If you’re still skeptical (and budget conscious), think of it this way. Routine inspections for your car will ultimately save you a mountain of money from would-be accidents caused by faulty parts. It’s also important to remember that your vehicle is made up of a lot more than four wheels and a coat of paint. There’s a lot more to be done than checking the dip stick.
One article lists some important parts which should be monitored to keep your vehicle running smoothly.
1. Replace car battery every 3-5 years
2. Replace worn out wiper blades and refill washer fluid
3. Regularly check belts and hoses for leaks or damage
4. Check and refill coolant fluid
