With just a little bit of expertise, staying on top of a basic car maintenance routine is easy, inexpensive, and the best way to keep your vehicle in top shape. Still, many drivers fail to perform the most crucial parts of vehicle upkeep. Are you guilty of any of these common car maintenance mistakes that could be costing you, and your vehicle, more than you know?
Forgetting about tires
Your tires are the only thing between your vehicle and the road, so it is hard to over-stress their importance. You should regularly monitor tire pressure, alignment, and tread; it is inexpensive and easy to do so and a great way to stay safe on the road and keep your car healthy for years to come.
Neglecting oil changes
When nothing is obviously wrong with your vehicle, it can be tempting to skip a scheduled oil change, but you should never do so. In fact, when you stay on top of oil changes you shouldn’t notice anything wrong with the way your car is running.
Driving with old wipers
Finally, don’t forget that visibility is extremely important when driving in all conditions. While this is common knowledge, many drivers stick with old, damaged wiper blades when they should be replaced.
