Maintenance of your car, light truck or SUV is key to keeping it on the road. Minor maintenance activities can often save major costs in the long run.The more miles driven annually can also alter your maintenance schedules.
How you drive is two different subjects. Are you an aggressive driver - more maintenance is needed. Do gig work like doordash, uber, lyft, grubhub? You need maintenance more often.
Many maintenance tasks are obvious, but other preventative steps are not as obvious.
A list of common maintenance tasks you should schedule can include: oil changes, oil filters, engine air filters and cabin air filters.
Wiper blades should be replaced every couple of years even once a year in extreme (cold, hot, rainy or snowy) areas.
Tire rotation is often talked about - seldom done. However front tires and rear tires are subject to different wear and usage stresses. You should plan regular rotation and balancing should be annually. Additionally, you should check air pressure monthly. You should to steering alignment every 20,000 to 25,000 miles.
Car washes are a maintenance people plan when the car looks dirty. But the underside of the car is subject to the most grime and harmful chemicals. Near oceans, the salty air requires washing at least monthly. Northern areas where salt is use to melt ice, washing the underside of the car is important as often as weekly.
Your headlights may need to be 'defogged' to keep them bright.
Last but not least. Brakes. Often ignored but if you wait until you hear brake problems, you are already too late.
