Car maintenance checklist

Your vehicle's Owner's Manual is one of the best source of useful information about your car.

 Your owner’s manual is the best and most authoritative guide to maintaining your car; different makes and models require specific services at varying intervals. If you want to know how to check the engine oil or how to change the bulb, or how to use an overdrive when towing a trailer, or how to change the tire and where is the jack located - all this type of information is in there.

A car maintenance checklist can be a great way to keep yourself reminded of all of the necessary items that will need to be checked every time you do the necessary maintenance on your car.  Maintenance can be the best way to prolong the life of your car and if you can’t remember what things to check, or do, then you can’t be sure that you will be caring for your car in the best way possible.
