MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLEThere is nothing worse then your car breaking down simply because you forgot to check the oil for months. Basic checks to your vehicles can potentially save you money in the long run as well as making your car a safer place to be. Look after your vehicle by following a few simple and quick steps.
EXTRA DRIVERS AT NO EXTRA COST
USE ANTI FREEZE OR ENGINE COOLANTIf driving the car in extreme temperatures (very cold or hot conditions) invest in some anti freeze or engine coolant.
CHECK YOUR OIL & WATER
Check your oil & water every few weeks. If you have never done this before ask someone at a service station (gas station) to show you what to do. Z service stations tend to have an oncourt concierge especially to help with this.
FIX MINOR PROBLEMS
Dealing with minor concerns quickly can help avoid them becoming serious & expensive problems later. This includes irregular noises, vibrations or leaking.
WASH YOUR CAR REGULARLY
Washing your car often will help keep the body free from corrosion (rust). Car washes are available at many gas stations around New Zealand.
CHECK YOUR TYRE PRESSURE
Check your tyre pressure regularly. It can save you fuel and makes the car safer to drive. This can be done at most service stations around the country.
