Updated: May 22, 2021

When the time comes, every driver will have to bring their car down to the workshop for servicing & maintenance so that their vehicle stays in almost like brand new condition. Here’s four important pointers to note before you send your car down.


Many motorists believe their cars’ oil should be changed every 5,000km, however most late-model vehicles now can go 8,000 to 10,000km between oil changes. Check your owner’s manual and get on a routine to good car care.


Ensure the battery cable connections are tight and the terminals are free from corrosion.

If the battery is more than three years old, it’s a good idea to have it tested to determine

how much life it has left.


Check tire pressures and tread depth. Check the pressure on all the tires including the spare with a quality gauge when the tires are cold. Be sure to look for recommended pressure on the drivers’ door jamb and NOT the tyre wall!


Wiper blades should completely clear the glass with each swipe. Make sure the windshield washer reservoir is filled
