Below is a list of some of the important systems you should have serviced and inspected on a regular basis. Always refer to your vehicle's owner's manual for detailed recommended service intervals.
Brakes: Obviously, brakes are an important safety device. You should have your brakes inspected as part of your routine service. Any sign of poor braking performance should be addressed immediately.
Cooling System: Have your cooling system checked as part of your maintenance program. Problems with your cooling system could lead to excessive engine wear. If cooling system problems are not addressed, it will lead to expensive repairs.
Emission Control Systems: The emission control system is currently being examined by the Drive Clean Program. A malfunctioning emission control system can also lead to poor fuel economy and performance.
Filters: All the filters on your vehicle should be replaced as part of a regular service regimen. Air and fuel filters should be examined on a regular basis and changed as required.
Fluids: Oil should be changed every 5000 Km or 5 months, which ever comes first. You should also check engine coolant, transmission and power steering fluid, as well as brake fluid.
Suspension: Your suspension system not only absorbs bumps, but also ensures proper tire-to-road contact. Worn suspension components compromise steering control and may lead to premature tire wear.
