Regular Mechanical Inspections
For your safety,I recommend having your car inspected regularly, at least once a year, by a mechanic.Someone who has the tools and expertise to inspect components such as brakes, suspension, etc., while having your tires rotated, for example. This is because many components (e.g ball joints), can not be inspected visually.
Basic Car Maintenance Tips
Regular oil changes are an important factor to keeping your engine in good shape.
Wash your car regularly, wax it once in a while to keep the car body shiny and free from corrosion.
Take care of any minor concerns as soon as you can, so they won't cause serious problems and expensive repairs.
How Often Should I Rotate my Tires?
Your tires should be rotated every other oil change, or every 6000 miles. Neglecting to rotate tires is a major cause of premature tire wear
Is it Really Necessary to Replace my Timing Belt at the Recommended Interval?
The failure of a timing belt in many cars can result in major engine damage. The cost of repairing an engine that has a broken timing belt is much greater than the cost of a timing belt replacement.
When Should I Get my Oil Changed?
You should get your oil changed every 3000 miles or every 3-4 months.
