  2. Investing in the vehicle is always a great feeling for the buyer. But the buyer must know the basic vehicle aftercare tips to keep his dearest-possession in a good condition. I think performing regular aftercare is obligatory for the person who really wants his speed machine to last the distance. I would like to tell that the oil change, battery maintenance, tire inspection, coolant level examination, brake maintenance, inspection of headlight and tail light, spark plug change, air filter change, are some of the stripped-down car maintenance tasks that you have to perform on a regular basis to keep your automobile in the peerless condition.

    1. True buying is just a one time process but aftercare is something which keeps the automobile in mobile and workable condition. With these easy & stress free checks plus maintenance a car can give you much more. Thank you for stopping by. Much appreciated

  3. Great tips! Also changing of AC lubricant frequently and getting the AC outlet cleaned (Thought to add it up here). I saw my cousin face a lot of difficulty because of the eye infection he had. It was because of the AC chamber was not cleaned frequently.
