When it comes to your vehicle, it is very important to keep it in the best shape possible. Whether it means taking the car in for a general checkup at your Suzuki service center or actually performing some home maintenance at home, there are a few different methods available for you to protect your Suzuki, regardless of the make or model of the car. With these different steps and techniques, you are able to extend the life of the car and keep your Suzuki in its best shape.
Just like a human, it is important to keep your Suzuki hydrated. There are different fluids that must be topped off, no matter the year or the mileage on the car. For starters, checking the oil, coolant and transmission levels should all be looked at regularly. Keeping these topped off and at an adequate level is going to ensure the car’s engine is running smoothly.
Check the tire pressure in your Suzuki tires. The tire pressure is listed along the side of the tires or inside your driver’s side door, so you know what the tire pressure should be. You don’t want the tires over or under inflated, as this not only affects the gas mileage of the vehicle, but also the safety and the tire’s ability to grip the pavement. With a simple tire pressure gauge, it is possible to read the tire pressure and then either add the needed air or remove some to ensure the very best performance of the tires.
Take your car in for a regular wash. This might just sound like simple appearance up keep, but it plays a rather important role in keeping the car secure and extending its life, especially during the winter time. As moisture builds up on the vehicle, or as salt from the roads sticks to the underside of the car, it often causes the metal to rust, dull or even chip. All of this reduces the structural soundness of the car, making it more likely to damage during an accident.
Take the vehicle into your Suzuki service center at the designated mileage points. Whether it is 10,000 miles or 100,000 miles, different areas of the vehicle may be deteriorated or have experienced damage over the past few months/years, which is why it is important to stay on schedule. Having a regularly scheduled service can find or prevent problems ahead of time, before it has the chance to expand into a more expensive and serious situation.
