As our trusted accomplices in life, our cars do a lot more for us than we give them credit for. Without our wheels, we would indeed have a lot of trouble going through life. From regular commutes to the workplace to weekend getaways, cars come in handy all the time. But how much time and attention do we give our vehicles?

Running regular checks on oil levels and changing the oil and filter increases the engine’s life and keeps it running smoothly for the longest possible.”
Rotate your tires.
“Essentially, your car tires are what keep you safe on the road,” says Dairon Dip. “Moreover, since tires are quite expensive, taking good care of them helps keep your budget stay on track.” Dairon, therefore, recommends maintaining proper air pressure and regularly rotating your car tires.
Check the fluids.

Fluids—from brake and steering fluid to coolant and transmission fluid—play a critical role in the smooth working of a car. And Dairon Dip wholeheartedly agrees. “Top-up and change these essential fluids regularly, and your car will behave just the way you want,” he says.
