Basic Car Maintenance Checklist

Even though we drive our cars every day, we often don’t think about all of the work that the different systems within our car have to execute day after day, and trip after trip. Although it can be easy to skip over your car’s basic maintenance, it is important to maintain your car’s systems. A well maintained car can last much longer and even increase its resale value. Don’t know where to start? Read on below to get an idea of what basic car maintenance looks like!

Flush/Inspect Your Brakes: Flushing your brake fluid is a very important part of maintaining strong and safe brakes. If you have noticed your brakes start to get a bit “squishy” over time, it might mean it is time to flush out the brake fluid! It is also extremely important to inspect your brakes for any cracks and to make sure they are wearing out in an even fashion.

Inspect Your Tires and Alignment: Another important piece in basic car maintenance is inspecting your tires. Make sure to check all tires for loss of tread, holes, or tears. The alignment of your car can also be easily tested. When you take your hands off the steering wheel, does the car veer in one direction or the other? If so, that could be a sign that your car’s tires are out of alignment and need to be rotated.

 Check Your Wipers: Nothing is worse than driving through rainy weather when you realize that one of your windshield wipers is broken or damaged. This can also create a very dangerous situation. Be sure to check your windshield wipers for any damage on a consistent basis. Additionally, be sure to check your levels of windshield wiper fluid, and top it off as needed!
