Tyres should be inspected at least once a month. The correct pressure information can usually be found on the edge of the driver’s side door.
Check your tyres for signs of damage or cracks. Even a small crack/cut should be checked by a tyre technician.
All tyres have tread wear indicators. These indicators appear in the main grooves when the tread has worn down to 1.6mm, showing the tyre needs to be replaced.
Correct tyre condition is crucial, in fact:
o Worn tyres cause reduced performance. It takes longer to brake on a wet road surface when tyres are worn and there is more risk of skidding.
o Under inflated tyres reduce your control of the vehicle, increase braking distances and wear out your tyres more rapidly.
o Over-inflated tyres reduce grip, reduce stability in braking and lead to poor handling.
Have your engine oil checked every 1,000kms or before long trips.
Change your engine oil every 5,000 or 10,000kms, depending on your vehicle and as recommended in the Owner’s Manual.
Oil filters should be changed regularly too, preferably whenever you change your engine oil – this helps the cleaning and new oil change performance.
Have regular battery checks to monitor its life and performance by having the charging system and fluid level/condition checked.
Check for damage and fluid leakage and maintain/clean the battery terminals to avoid any corrosion.
Change your vehicle’s battery at least every 2 to 3 years.
Change your wipers and wiper arm periodically.
Regular inspection should be done for any damages on the blade and crack development.
