People tend overlook or put off routine car maintenance. The philosophy seems to be if it is not broke do not fix it. While that may be true in some circumstances, car maintenance is not one of them. Do not wait until there is a major problem to take care of your vehicle. Waiting too long can cost you hundreds of dollars or more in major repairs. The best schedule for your car is the one in your cars auto manual. The manual that comes with your car customizes the list especially for the engine in the make and model of your automobile.
