Car maintenance checklist

Consult your cars manufacturers’ handbook if you have one as this should provide details on when to service your car. If the manufacturers guide is not available, generally a car should be serviced anywhere between 10 000 – 15 000 km or once a year if under that mileage. Regular home car maintenance should include:

  • Checking oil levels
  • Engine coolant levels
  • Hydraulic brake fluid levels
  • Windscreen washer refilling
  • Tyre pressures and tyre damage such as cuts and bulges. The tyre tread depth should be at least 1.6mm
  • Indicators, brake, rear and head lights
