Any leakage of oil underneath the car. Check any leakage of coolant water from the radiator. Check the battery condition.

There are several factors affecting the frequency with which you should service your car . Many people ask, how often should a car be serviced, however the primary trio for consideration for an answer are: The amount of miles you drive. How well your vehicle has been maintained. The surfaces and quality of road you travel on. As a good rule of thumb, we suggest you have your car serviced every twelve months or 12000 miles, whichever comes first. Heavy car users, who drive many miles a year, should aim to have at least an interim service every six months or 6000 miles.

Rotating your tires every 3rd oil change or 9,000 miles (based on tire application) helps insure the life of the tire and its warranty. Avoidance of this can cause tire damage (cupping), and may make the steering of the vehicle difficult. Pay close attention to the tread depth of your tires to observe that the wear patterns are equal.
It is best to have the cooling system flushed at the intervals recommended by the manufacturer. Having the system flushed once a year is commonly recommended if the vehicle is driven regularly. Coolant breaks down over time, becoming corrosive which can cause premature failure of gaskets and seals. The idea is to replace the coolant before it gets contaminated to avoid costly repairs.
It is best to have the transmission fluid flushed at the intervals recommended by the manufacturer under normal driving conditions. Under severe service it may be advisable to have it flushed more often. Transmission fluid breaks down over time due to the extreme temperatures during operation. The idea is to replace the fluid before it looks dark or smells burned so the transmission can operate at its best. This will prolong the life of the transmission and head off costly repairs and inconvenience for you.
