Many motorists believe their cars’ oils should be changed every 3,000 miles, however most late-model vehicles now can go 5,000 to 7,000 miles between oil changes. Check your owner’s manual and get on a routine fore good car care.

Tires
Check tire pressure and tread depth. Check the pressure on all the tires, including the spare, with a quality gauge when the tires are cold. Be sure to look for recommended pressure on the driver’s door jamb and NOT the tire wall.

Battery
Ensure the battery cable connections are tight, and the terminals are free from corrosion. If the battery is more than three years old, it’s a good idea to have it tested to determine how much life it has left.

Wiper Blades
Wiper blades should completely clear the glass with each swipe. Make sure the windshield washer reservoir is filled.
