Car Maintenance and Care

  • Change your fluids on time, every time.
  • Change your oil every 4800 kilometers for regular, 8000 kilometers for synthetic oil
  • Change antifreeze fluid every 48,000 kilometers.
  • Change brake fluid every 48,000 kilometers.
  • Change transmission fluid every 48,000 kilometers.
  • Schedule a maintenance check every 24, 48, 96, and 145,000 kilometers.
  • Replace your air filter every 12 months or 19,000 kilometers (whichever comes first).
  • Replace your fuel filter every 2 years or 38,000 kilometers (whichever comes first).

Tire Maintenance and Care

  • Rotate your tires every 8,000 kilometers or every 6 months.
  • Check your tire pressures approximately once a week. Low tire pressures can affect fuel economy, handling and comfort. To accurately measure your tire pressure, check tires when they are cold. Wait at least three hours after driving.
  • Always make sure that your wheels are properly aligned. Badly aligned wheels will again lead to dragging of the car on the road.
  • Check your spare tire each month and keep it properly inflated so it¹s ready to go when you need it most.

Gas Mileage Tips

  • Check and/or change your air filter every 6 months to improve fuel economy and keep your engine running smoothly.
  • Don't top off. Don't bother topping off when filling your car's gas tank. Any additional gas is just going to slop around or seep out.
  • Tighten up that gas cap. Gas will evaporate from your car's gas tank if it has an escape. Loose, missing or damaged gas caps cause 555 million liters of gas to evaporate each year.
  • Go for the shade. The hot summer sun that makes the inside of your car feel like a sauna also evaporates fuel from your gas tank.
  • Use the right oil. You can improve your car's gas mileage by 1 percent to 2 percent by using the manufacturer's recommended grade of motor oil.

And most important of all……

  • Always check for potential problems before they happen.
