What types of checks should I be conducting?
While you should have your car professionally maintained at all times, there are quite a few important checks that you should conduct on a regular basis. Doing so will help ensure that you aren’t in for any rude surprises. Here’s a quick rundown of what you should check:
Battery: Your battery is maintenance free. However, have the battery and other charging system components checked regularly.
Brake Fluid: Check the fluid level in the reservoir.
Coolant: Check the fluid level in the reservoir.
Oil: Check the oil level on the dipstick.
Exhaust: Check for abnormal sounds and the smell of exhaust in the cabin.
Washer Fluid: Check the level in the reservoir and top off if necessary.
Gas Pedal: Check that it moves smoothly.
Brake Pedal: Check that it moves smoothly and that it doesn’t require more or less pressure than usual.
Brakes: Listen for abnormal sounds (squealing or grinding), and make sure that the car doesn't pull to the side when braking.
Lights: Check that all your lights work correctly.
Seat Belts: Check that the extend and retract smoothly. Look for tears, burrs, and other damage on the webbing.
