Car Maintenance Tips: Don’t let your car cost you an arm and a leg

You may agree with me if I say maintaining car in tip-top condition is not exciting as buying a car. However, it is possible when you take your Volkswagen to an authorized Volkswagen service center in Hyderabad like PPS Motors. Let’s take a closer look at the things which have to be taken care of before you gear up for any adventurous ride.

While you’re busy winding down for another holiday season, don’t let your car care spoil your trip. Mistreated auto care almost always means much higher costs down the road in the form of more wide-ranging upkeeps / repairs or reduced resale value. Hence it’s always recommended that you should follow owner’s manual carefully to ensure your car doesn’t eat up your hard-earned money.

Considering our busy schedules, most of us usually don’t visit service centers for general upkeeps or maintenance unless our car is reluctant to start. It’s important to remember that routine vehicle upkeep means huge savings by enhancing fuel economy, prolonging vehicle life and decreasing the chance of expensive car troubles. Here is why, we advise a quick car check to help dodge the unexpected expenditure of a breakdown when traveling by car this holiday season.

Well, what all are the things you should check for? Firstly, examine the tire pressure and tread. Uneven wear directs a need for wheel alignment; also tires should be checked for humps and bald spots.

Secondly, check all fluids, including power steering and brake oil, engine oil, and transmission, as well as antifreeze/coolant and windshield washer solvent. Inspect the hoses and belts that can be frayed, loosen, cracked, brittle or show signs of excessive wear. These are critical to the proper functioning of the electrical system, air conditioning, power steering and the cooling system.

Check lighting to recognize any glitches with exterior and interior lighting, as the chance of a mishap rises if you can’t identify or be identified. Also check wipers as wiper blades should be changed every six months. Ensure the windshield wipers are working properly and keep the reservoir filled with solvent.

Most importantly, we recommend every motorist to restock their emergency kit and make sure it is in the vehicle all the time. You can save your fuel cost during the trip by avoiding aggressive driving, controlling the speed limit and dodging extreme idling. Lastly check gas caps or replace them if those are damaged, loosen or missing in order to prevent gas from spilling or evaporating.
