Being at the age of owning a driving license and your car. But breaking down your brand new car and spending money on the repairs doesn’t seem like a productive solution. Focusing on regular car maintenance is one approach to minimize pricey repairs. Here are a few simple things you can do to make your life as a car owner simpler.
- Go through your driver’s manual

2. Check Your Vehicle Regularly
Keep a regular check on your vehicle to avoid long-term or expensive repairs. Everyone should start going with the basic repairs and check themselves. Checking fluid levels (such as oil and coolant) and tire pressure will assist ensure that your automobile is in excellent working order (and mileage). Furthermore, keeping an eye on the state of essential equipment like tires, windshield wipers, and headlights may make a huge difference in driving safety. These quick examinations take only a few minutes and go a great way toward ensuring your safety.
3. Daily routine maintenance

Follow your driver's manual; it will teach you all you need to know about maintaining your vehicle. Your mechanic should inspect the spark plugs, brakes, air filter, belts, and fluids at regular intervals.

If you're still unclear about what needs to be serviced, the Internet is a useful resource that can provide you with all the information you need about your car.
Even the best-maintained vehicle might fail at any time. You avoid such situations, be sure to have the following items on hand.
- A spare tire that is well inflated, as well as a jack.
- An emergency first-aid kit
- Other drivers are warned of a breakdown by using flares or reflective devices.
- A light source
- A travel-sized toolbox
- Jumper cables
- An unfilled gasoline canister (Never keep excess petrol in your automobile. It is exceedingly dangerous.)
