Back-to-School Car Maintenance | Dan Pfeiffer Used Cars & Quick Lane Tire & Auto Center
The new school year is upon us which means now is the perfect time to have your car serviced. The last thing any driver wants is to be late to class because of a mechanical problem that could have avoided. Here are a few car maintenance items to take care of before you get back into the swing of the things.
Keeping up with basic maintenance isn’t as hard or time-consuming as it may sound. Basic maintenance includes some of the more common maintenance items, like oil changes, tire rotations, and filter replacement.
Fortunately, all of these maintenance items can be taken care of at a dealership service department every few months. Performing basic maintenance will help extend the life of your vehicle.
If there’s one thing that more drivers need to do, it is read the owner’s manual. The owner’s manual is your one-stop shop for everything you need to know about your vehicle. The most important item to make note of is the manufacturer-suggested service schedule.
Abiding by that schedule can prevent any major mechanical problems for thousands upon thousands of miles. Make sure to mark the service schedule’s page so you can easily access it come maintenance time.
Nothing pays off more than being prepared for a problem on the road. Mechanical issues small and large can come out of nowhere, especially if your vehicle hasn’t been properly serviced and taken care of.
Having a safety kit ready to go at a moment’s notice is a great way to get back on the road in a timely manner. Your kit should include gloves, jumper cables, a pair of gloves, a seatbelt cutter, bottled water, and a flashlight with extra batteries.
It’s better to be safe than sorry, as the saying goes.
