Released By : Ace Honda Noida
Automobile technology is constantly evolving and today's automobile engines are far more advanced with their computer-controlled engine management systems. In addition to that, modern vehicles also come with never-before-seen features that require routine inspections to ensure that your car remains in top condition.
Regardless of the technological complexity, there are still a lot of things one can do to ensure that your vehicle remains in perfect condition for driving. It includes regular vehicle tune-ups, periodic inspections and seasonal maintenance services.
Did you know that a routine vehicle tune-up will not only keep your car in good condition, but it will also put your mind at ease? A regular tune-up includes inspecting the engine, battery, replacing spark plugs, scanning for default codes and so on.

Checklist for proper vehicle care
1. Avoid using your brakes down a long hill to prevent the wear of brake pads, instead alternate between braking and letting off the brake.
2.Never ignore any unusual noises your car makes; they frequently indicate a problem.
3.Avoid shifting from Reverse to Drive (or vice versa) while your car is still moving slowly since you will be placing a tremendous amount of stress on your vehicle’s gears.
4.Avoid operating your car when it's hot since the longer you drive an overheated car, the more damage it will cause and the more expensive it will be to fix.
5.Avoid using a pressure washer on your vehicle's engines since a high-powered jet of water can instantly dislodge electrical components, hoses and rubber seals, causing extensive damage to your vehicle.
