Car Care Tip: Scheduled Maintenance

Sun Devil Auto Expert, published on 06/04/2015

Your car performs for you to the best of its ability, but how far that ability goes really depends on you! By prioritizing the care for your vehicle, you can greatly affect your car’s performance in the long run. Some drivers struggle to find the time for quick inspections and schedule maintenance – but finding the time to have your car regularly serviced will be beneficial for the life span of your car.

The more informed you are about why scheduled maintenance is necessary, the more you will understand how your car performs and what keeps it running smoothly. It’s also important to know the consequences of what can happen if you don’t give your vehicle the attention it needs. When you neglect the recommended scheduled maintenance, you are putting your car’s performance at risk.

There are some key items in your vehicle that should be inspected regularly:

  • Transmission fluids and filters
  • Tires
  • Brakes
  • Cooling system and coolant
  • Drive belts and hoses
  • Fuel injection system
  • Power steering fluid
  • Fuel and air filters
  • Spark plugs
