Wheeling drivers know that taking care of their new Jaguar is important. While some people may think basic vehicle maintenance can be put off, it’s important to know what to look for and when to take care of it. Apart from general vehicle care, like tire pressure levels, there are more in-depth services and reasons to be keep your car healthy even in a basic sense. Let’s take a look at these, courtesy of the service department at Jaguar Charleston!

Reasons to Follow Your Maintenance Schedule

  • Safety: Keeping up with basic maintenance on your vehicle means there is less chance of something going wrong and potentially causing an accident
  • Warranty: Neglecting your vehicle’s maintenance schedule can result in warranty invalidation, which in turn can make for costly repairs in the future
  • Avoid Future Costs: Bringing your vehicle in for routine service can lead to technicians discovering an issue before it becomes severe, thus saving you money and repairing the issue before it evolves
  • Maintaining Reliability: The last thing you want is a blown out engine on the roads of Beckley. Routine maintenance can help keep your vehicle reliable and less likely of breaking down

What Type of Maintenance is Necessary?

It’s easy to sometimes forget what types of basic service your vehicle needs. Whether your drive frequently around the neighborhood, or make long drives for work, you should keep the following maintenance needs in mind:

  • Brakes
  • Headlights
  • Tire Tread/Pressure
  • Engine Oil
  • Transmission Fluid
  • Cabin and Engine Air Filters
  • Brake and Power Steering Fluid
  • Belts and Hoses

While these may not all be things you can do yourself, they are important to the overall health and lifespan of your vehicle.

You should also keep in mind things like part replacement and caring for the interior of your vehicle, like the upholstery.

  • Tire Rotation
  • Terminal Cleaning and Battery Check
  • Replacement of Wiper Blades
