An automobile is constructed from a large number of parts, which gets worn off, weakened, or corroded gradually affecting the vehicle performance. This is based on the conditions or the length of use. All the parts in the vehicle should be periodically examined to understand the wear and tear and should be adjusted or replaced to prevent damage to the vehicle.
Following could be achieved by conducting preventive maintenance regularly ensuring the vehicle’s roadworthiness and the customer’s peace of mind.

- The vehicle can be maintained in a state which is in adherence to legal regulations.
- The life of the vehicle can be extended.

A typical periodical maintenance schedule recommends a particular service at mileage or time intervals. Driving habits and conditions should also be evaluated to determine the frequency of periodical maintenance service intervals. For example, vehicles that frequently are driven for short distances in city traffic may require more frequent oil changes due to the more rapid accumulation of condensation and unburned fuel in the oil.
If your car has a high fuel consumption, lack of engine power when acceleration, abnormal engine vibration then it’s time for your car’s engine tune-up.
