Auto Maintenance Schedule | Car Tips
While it may seem like an unnecessary hassle to follow an auto maintenance schedule for your vehicle, doing so will help to extend the life of your vehicle and can save you hundreds of dollars. Also, if you do not properly follow the minimum maintenance requirements designed by the manufacturer, you may have your warranty claims denied.
Not only will you be saving money by giving your car a higher resale value, but you will also be able to save on fuel economy. Changing your filters and getting an oil change will both help improve fuel efficiency and cut down on the trips to the gas pump.
Having proof of a maintenance schedule alone will help increase the value of your vehicle. Many used car buyers are very concerned about the maintenance of the vehicle they’re purchasing, so a completed schedule will show the vehicle is in good condition and worth purchasing.
Finally, keeping a schedule will help keep your warranty intact, something you don’t want to be denied if something goes wrong. No one wants to have to pay out of their pocket for something that might have not even been their fault.
