OIL CHANGE: Many motorist believe their cars’ oil should be changed every 3,000 miles, however, most late-model vehicles now can go 5,000 to 7,000 miles between oil changes. Check your owner’s manual and get on a routine to good car care.
TIRES: 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 driver’s door jamb and NOT on the tire wall!
BATTERY: 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.
WIPER BLADES: Wiper blades should completely clear the glass with each swipe. make sure the windshield washer reservoir is filled.
