These tips include guidance on front-end maintenance, tune-ups, oil changes, air conditioning, batteries, and more. Each chapter has a useful roadmap that gives a brief summary of its contents.A routine maintenance schedule is outlined so that care owners will know what to check and when. Each time drivers get into their cars they should make a visual check of the tire pressure, look for any leaks under the car, check all gauges, and listen for any unusual sounds or vibrations. a maintenance list is provided for every fill up, every three months/3, 000 miles, every six months/6, 000 miles, every year/12, 000 miles, and every two years/24, 000 miles.Every automobile owner should have a copy of this informative book in the car's glove box, and should consult it regularly.If someone is selling you services with tactics such as, aquot;Your car is unsafe to drive off the lot, aquot; or, aquot;You will probably get in a wreck in the next hundred miles, aquot; or, aquot;I wouldna#39;t drive that car on the road, aquot; or, aquot;That tire will blow out next time ... I would certainly be concerned about my car if a salesman used such scare tactics, but I would drive it at least to the next nearest service center and get a second opinion.
