INFOGRAPHIC: Everything you need to know about complete car care
MANILA, Philippines – You might be an expert at maneuvering around the city in your car, but are you as knowledgeable when it comes to ensuring it remains in good shape?
Buying a car is easy for those with the financial capability to do so. But not everyone actually takes the time to know their vehicles, leaving all the maintenance up to the experts. Because of this, they end up bringing in their vehicles for servicing only when breakdowns occur – which, perhaps unknown to many, actually costs more than doing preventive maintenance checks.
When it comes to taking care of your vehicle, there are two things you should remember. First, prevention will always be better than cure, and second, it’s not as daunting as you think.
The key is knowing what you can do yourself and what needs to be done by a trained professional.
Doing so not only it saves you money, it also lets you know the condition of your vehicle better and prevent costly breakdowns and unnecessary trips to the mechanic.
We interviewed Leo Cabredo, Retail Lubricants Business Development Manager for Shell Philippines, to come up with the following infographic on complete car care. Find out which preventive maintenance steps you can do in your garage, and when you can bring your vehicle in for the more complicated ones. – Rappler.com
