Most drivers only follow their car's manual until their warranties expire. Once your warranty expires, it would be hard to keep track of belt inspections, oil changes, etc. The only people who know your vehicle well are its manufacturers. They know how the car is expected to perform and what needs to be done to keep it performing optimally. That's why they come up with a list of recommended services in the owner's manual. Following the factory recommended services will increase the lifespan of your car.
Why do you need to maintain your car regularly?
Regular car maintenance may seem costly, but it will help you save a lot in the long run. Here are the reasons why this is so.
Preventing expensive repairs
When your car develops a problem, and you leave it unattended, the problem will become bigger. For example, if you ignore an oil leak, your lubrication and transmission systems will get damaged, plus the engine's car starting system and other components. By repairing a car the moment you notice a problem, you can avoid all the additional problems.
Increasing your car's lifespan
As you use your car, most of its components, including the brake pads, wheel, timing belt, etc., will wear out. If left unattended, these problems will eventually ground your car. Regular maintenance will ensure worn-out parts are replaced as soon as they get detected. This ensures your transmission fluid, gearing, transmission, starters, and everything else remain in good shape. As a result, your car will serve you even longer than you had anticipated.
Do you need scheduled maintenance?
Of course, you need scheduled maintenance. When you are so busy, you may not develop your own maintenance schedule, but if you engage a qualified mechanic, he will always remind you when your car is due for a check-up. Some mechanics can even visit your home and have the car checked. If they notice any problem, they can fix it there, and then, if not, they will ask you to drive the vehicle to the repair shop. Scheduled maintenance is also more affordable than going for maintenance services randomly.
