Auto Maintenance

Auto maintenance for your vehicle

The maintenance of your vehicle

Maintenance entails checking the various subsystems of the vehicle (engine, steering, transmission, car-to-ground components such as tires and suspension, braking, cooling, exhaust, lighting, electricity) and the replacement of parts or fluids.
 
For motor vehicles five years or older, maintenance can account for a significant part of the overall cost of having a vehicle. These days, new vehicles require little maintenance, as manufacturers continue to improve the quality and reliability of their products. Some manufacturers now offer warranties for up to 5 or even 7 years.
Ideally, vehicle maintenance is more than just simply flushing out the systems every 10,000 kilometers or so. Indeed, there are many items to keep in check on a regular basis.

Necessary maintenance to perform every 10,000 kilometers or 8 months.
