How to Maintain a Car?

With increasing buying capacity of people, cars have become extremely common on Indian roads. Almost every family has at least one car in its parking yard. It is categorised as the most convenient vehicle amongst all. In order to live a long life with this vehicle, it is important to take care of its regular maintenance. If this activity is performed on a regular basis, it will ensure a great performance of the car. Here are some of the maintenance tips that will certainly make a car safe and a worth to ride on road.   
  • Get the car tune-ups done on regular basis  
It is vital for a car owner to get his/her vehicle tuned-up at least once in a month. You can either do it yourself or visit a maintenance garage. It not just ensures an optimum efficiency of your car but also helps in saving a lot of your money. The major reason for this is 30% more consumption of gasoline annually in poorly tuned-up cars.
  • Regular check up of car’s fluid levels
In case of a new car, its fluid level must be checked on a weekly basis and in used cars; it must be checked on a daily basis. This not only       ensures a better condition of your car but also contributes in a safe drive.
  • Check its tyre’s pressure on a regular basis
A regular check-up of tyres on a monthly basis also ensures a better performance of your car. In case of failure, the result has a negative impact on the car.   
While facilitating the trade of used cars in India, Shriram Automall India Limited (SAMIL) has taken several initiatives to enhance bidding arena in automobile industry. Along with used cars in India, it provides refurbishment and repair services before disposal. This way, it offers better price realisation for used cars in India.
