Car maintenance tips:

Make sure that the tires are properly inflated. Under-inflated and over-inflated tired can cause several problems to the car.

Before you drive, check if the nuts and wheels of your tire are properly fixed.

2. Protect the car from harsh weather: Certain types of weather are not good for the car. Extreme cold or extremely hot weather conditions are not good for the car. Hot weather can damage the interior seats or exterior paints.

To prevent this get a parking shade for your car.

The brake has a fluid that is used for it, make sure to check and know when you should change the brake fluid.
