Checking your car and bringing it to an auto shop regularly seems to be the last on your list – unless you start to experience that there is something wrong while driving. Usually, car owners tend to check their car when they notice some troubles and malfunctions with the car.

  • Specialized service

Remember that not all cars are manufactured the same way – especially German vehicles. German vehicles will require specialized tools and specific diagnostic equipment. Look for a shop that offers this kind of equipment and services in order to get excellent results. 

  • Original parts

Make sure that your technician has access to your vehicle parts like your dealer.

Make sure that your technician has knowledge when it comes to what works best for your German vehicle.

  • Time for service 

German vehicles are designed to notify its owners when it believes that condition service is due. It may include checking engine oil, cabin micro air filter, brake fluid and brake pads to name a few.

  • Check your tires

If you notice that your transmission is not shifting correctly, check your tires. Your tires might be mismatched in circumference. It is recommended that your tires should be of the same age so get all four tires all the same time.

  • Brake pedal

Change your vehicle’s brake fluid once every two years.

  • Breathe clean air

Replace your cabin micro air filter when you hit 40,000 mileage. Dirty filters can cause the blower motor to work harder which can cause damage.

  • Don’t skip car maintenance services

If it’s time for your vehicle to be checked, do not delay it as it is one of the best ways to ensure your car will last longer.

  • Ask for help
