Regular maintenance is essential for the operational and traffic safety of Cars. This should be performed once a year or every 10,000 miles. The car manufacturer will advise the recommended option.

There is some maintenance that you can do yourself at home.  These include checking your oil levels and quality, top up the water and check the tyre pressures.

There are also some replacement parts you can undertake at home.  You can replace lightbulbs and windscreen wiper blades. To find the correct ones for your car make and model please check the owner’s guide.

If you have an electric car or hybrid, maintenance and servicing of your car are very much the same.  You can still place the windscreen wipers and lightbulbs and, if you have a hybrid car, the oil and water levels. 

Maintenance of your car at home should be done regularly, and particularly before the winter months.
