Most common drivers only pay attention when they are low on fuel, but when the vehicle has performance issue, funny noise, or hard starting issue. That’s the time to take it in to the repair shop and hope its nothing major. Preventive maintenance may help take that fear, in most case each vehicle has an interval service that should be consider. One major preventive maintenance is the timing belt; the timing belt are normally recommend by mileage(E.G. 60,000, 90,000, 105,000, etc.). If a timing belt breaks it may have piston to valve damage which will cost a lot more. Tune up are also consider preventive maintenance most vehicle’s recommend every 60,000 this may help with gas mileage, but also prevent misfire, help create less carbon and give better performance. Brakes and suspension are also consider preventive maintenance, have someone look at them at least once every oil change this will give better suspension performance and better handling. The brakes are also important, because everybody needs to stop; a squealing brake means that its getting metal to metal and trying to get your attention to have them check. Letting the brakes go in till they grind may mean more costly repairs.
