Operating a four wheeler on the daily basis is pretty common these days, today almost each and every home has a ride of its own. Whether it’s driving from home to office or anywhere else, we thoroughly enjoy driving! However, many of us don’t spare time in thinking about the maintenance involved in such wonderful rides. And in fact, there are times when all of a sudden your vehicle starts to sound funny or scary , these are nothing but warning icons that your automobile needs some maintenance be it your brakes or Valeo Starter, etc.
“Its never about how we make mistakes, but how we correct them is something that defines us.” Committing mistakes is a part of growing but repeating the same mistake again and again from the past is foolishness. However here I would like to share a piece of my experience in the context of auto repairs and maintenance. So keep reading further to get a better perspective!
Neglecting initial maintenance and minor repairs
Every ride has its own needs and requirements, and being a first-time car buyer chances are there that you fail to understand the initial repair and maintenance needs of your car and this is exactly what I did. I ignored changing the engine oil and filter one of the most crucial automotive spare parts which simply resulted in damaging my entire engine that cost me thousands more. I would simply suggest you hiring a reputable professional who can look after your ride at regular intervals.
I replaced the parts and forgot to ask them back
Once I went to the mechanic to replace spare parts but did not ask regarding the replaced part in return. Asking for old parts in return simply acts as a proof that my automotive spare parts have been replaced in a proper manner. However, I would suggest you to simply ask your mechanic to place your old parts in the same box of the new one, and moreover, you don’t have to look around for extra bags or boxes to place those parts.
Nothing can go wrong with my Tires
Driving vigorously can reduce the life of your tires and increase wear and tear situation in them. I completely ignored the current situation and end up having a severe mishap as due to tire fail, I could not control my automobile. But you don’t, even the best automotive spare parts manufacturers suggest taking good care of wheels.
The warning lights from the dashboard
Warning lights are never just like that! It’s a sign that something is going wrong and the situation can be worsened if not taken care of it. I would firmly advise you to get a better understanding of the warning lights, be it the brake light or temperature light, engine light, etc.
So this is it! These are some of the major mistakes made by me when I bought my first car. See buying a car is not such a big deal, what’s more, important is how you can maintain it.
