A car is as good as the owners maintenance and experiences have shown that procrastination of scheduled routine maintenance is a major reason for many broken down cars along the road.

How to make car last longer
In a country like Nigeria with the harsh driving environment (bad roads, traffic, weather) you need to pay extra care to your car.
We will share some very useful tips and routine checks that will extend the lifespan of your car and save you some money in the long run.

  • Check the level of your car engine oil and change engine oil at due intervals as specified by car manufacturer as this is the most important part of your car and would lengthen the life span of your car by a great deal.
  • Change oil filter during every oil change as well
  • Check the level of brake fluid and transmission fluid at least once every week and change at due time as specified by vehicle manufacturer.
  • Regularly check the pressure of your tyres once a week
  • Check the level of the engine radiator coolant at least once a week and occasionally flush or replace coolant once every year.
  • Check all drive belts for crack at least once a month
  • Check the cars brake pads at least once every 2weeks
  • Check the suspension of the car once 2months
  • Replace air filters once every 6months
  • Avoid revving your engine to the red-zone marked on your dashboard
  • Pay regular attention to your wheel balancing with HD Wheels and alignments and fix when any abnormality is observed.
  • Never allow gas/fuel to dry out in your car. This makes the engine suck dirt which is really bad for the engine.
  • Park your car in the shade, or use windshield sun guard or car cover.
