What is the Importance of Regular Car Maintenance?

According to information collected by AAA, one in three U.S. drivers delayed or skipped recommended vehicle maintenance and repairs in 2017. This coincides with the amount of money that is required to be spent yearly to repair avoidable issues caused by the lack of standard maintenance. Generally, these unexpected repairs bills cost between $400 – $600, with some costs exceeding $1,000. This figure also supports a study provided by the Business Insider that states that only four out of ten Americans can afford an unexpected $400 expense.

Monetary aspects aside, the safety and reliance of an individual’s vehicle maintenance is something that should not be overlooked. When a vehicle owner neglects to provide their vehicle with the recommended regular maintenance, vehicles run the risk of becoming a danger to the individual operating them. System failure could happen at any time, and this is especially dangerous when one is far away from home. While some issues are out of the average vehicle owner’s control, there are a large number of issues that can be avoided by keeping up with regular maintenance.

Provided is a list of recommended maintenance that should be provided to a user’s vehicle to ensure full functionality:
