The average age of all cars still in use in Spain is over 10 years, and so here, in brief, are 10 things to keep an eye on to maintain your car in optimum and safe condition.

1. Read the Manual
Always refer to your manual if you have a question about your vehicle care. It’s a great resource for troubleshooting vehicle issues.

2. Keep it Clean
Cleaning your vehicle regularly is not only important to keep it looking good but scrubbing your car or running it through the car wash isn’t just about making it sparkly. Dirt, salt, sand, and other debris that can get on your car leads to rust.

3. Regular Maintenance
Oil changes are probably what come to mind when you think of regular maintenance. The timing of oil changes depends on your vehicle and the type of oil you use. Full synthetic oil requires less frequent changes.

4. Inspect It Regularly
Look at little closer at different parts of your car to make sure they’re still in good condition.

5. Drive Carefully
The easier you are on your car when you drive, the better it should hold up over time.

6. Fix Problems Quickly
If you notice any issues with your car, have it checked out right away. Little squeaks, bangs, or shakes might not seem like much, but they could be a sign of something bigger.

7. Care for the Tyres
Always keep your tyres properly inflated and check them regularly.

8. Maintain Fluid Levels
Your car relies on lots of fluids to keep things running smoothly. Your mechanic should check those fluids when you take your car in for routine maintenance. But it’s a good idea to check them regularly between appointments to ensure you keep them full.

9. Protect Your Car
If you have a garage or carport available, park your car there as much as possible. This protects it from potentially damaging weather elements, including UV rays and hail.

10. Use Quality Products
Using quality products on and in your vehicle can make it last longer.

Choose original manufacturer parts when you need to replace something.
