Regular maintenance makes your vehicle safer and more reliable, and will allow you to save money in the long term.
While it may cost a bit of money in the short term, the advantages of regular maintenance over the long term make it a worthwhile investment (improved fuel efficiency, higher resale value, fewer costly repairs, etc.).
Follow the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule and pay careful attention to your vehicle’s brakes, tires, fluids, belts, steering and suspension systems, headlights and lights, windshield wipers, and air filters.
