Having a car not only entails having an easy means of transportation, but it also means having the responsibility to ensure that the car is running in tip top shape. As car technology continues to be more innovative, car owners have to put in the time and effort to ensure that their cars remain durable throughout the years.
Keeping this in mind, here are some of the ways one can ensure their car is in prime condition without breaking a sweat.
During Fill-Ups Clean the Windshield
A fill-up at a gas station is a great place to start. Having a bug-splattered, dirty windshield is certainly not attractive. Moreover, it can prove to be a serious health hazard considering all the obscureness it can give one while they are on the road.
So after arriving at the gas station, the first thing to do is to soak the windshield with preferably cleaning fluid, before finishing it off with a nice good rub. On the side note, if the headlights as well as the side mirror are also dirty, it’s essential that one gives them the good ol’ scrubbing and cleansing as well!
Observe the Tie Pressure
Over the course of a drive, the tie pressure might be reduced due to plenty of weight on the tires, resulting in an imbalance in the inflation of tires. That being said, ensure to avoid this by putting the correct pressure in each and every tire, so that the efficiency of the car, as well as its life, is enhanced in the process.
Confirm the Oil Level and Do a Top Off if Required
Motor oil is quite critical for a car to perform at its best. In fact, the main purpose of motor oil for any car is to ensure that each and every moving part within the machine is effectively lubricated so that they do not inadvertently grind themselves to disaster!
Moreover, motor oil is also important in that it transfers most of the heat that is being produced by the running far from the combustion cycles, in the process trapping and getting a hold of all the nasty side products of the process of combustion, and further directing it towards the oil filter.
So as a safety precaution, always ensure that the car has a healthy motor-oil level to increase its lifetime in the long run!

Always Adhere to the Maintenance Schedule in the Vehicle Logbook
Each vehicle has its unique set of maintenance tasks that need to be adhered to, regardless of whether the owner feels like the car is in tip-top shape or not. That being said, ensure to always keep tabs on the car’s instruction manual for maintenance and follow it, even when the car feels like it is in great shape and doesn’t need any maintenance at all. It’s no wonder the sages famously quipped, ‘a stitch in time saves nine.’ By getting business always done on time, one averts and future problems.
