Refill Tires 

Making sure your tires are filled with enough air is a good way of maintaining your vehicle’s ability to perform. Having too high or too low of air pressure is bad for the tires and may need to be replaced. Your vehicle will also be less fuel-efficient if you don’t have the right tire pressure. You can usually find the tire pressure if you open one of the back doors. There may be a panel there that has the proper tire pressure for your vehicle. You can also visit the manufacturer website to find it there.

Oil Changes 

Getting an oil change is a part of basic maintenance that many people overlook as a priority. Oil changes are important because they help your vehicle perform better and when a car needs new oil, parts inside the vehicle can start to break down. It is healthy for the vehicle to change its oil after every 3,000 miles. This is the best way to keep your vehicle running smoothly.
