We all need wheels to travel; it’s the way of life and a necessity. Once you own a vehicle, you cannot live without it. This is why it’s important to care and maintain your vehicle.

It is inevitable that our vehicles depreciate over the years from continued use. Therefore, we have put together a few common reasons why your car could ‘go down’ hill if it is not looked after well enough.



Just like us, we book appointments with our GP to have health checks, as we wouldn’t want to neglect our wellbeing; this principle is similar with our vehicles, visiting its local garage for regular services, and to identify any early signs of problems, thus carrying out repairs before parts deteriorate. This means, it would be better to fix those issues as soon as possible from a professional or skilled person. (For this purpose, it is essential to make sure that you consult a reliable company). It is always good to know that when you purchase your vehicle, your friendly dealership can also continue to maintain it through regular servicing and MOT’s. At Motor City Plymouth, we pride ourselves with our After Sales Package, which provides our customers with the ultimate convenience and customer care. Being a valued customer your car will have the following FREE benefits - Monthly wash and vac, puncture repairs, Mot’s in conjunction with a service, 6 monthly health checks.



The mechanics of a vehicle can easily be nurtured and looked after, so much so, on some occasions tyres can be neglected and be taken for granted, these can alter with load and the season. It is equally important to check the alignment of your wheels, again, at Motor City Plymouth; we have a dedicated team and specialist equipment to carry this out for you. If your tyres are under-inflated or not aligned properly, it will run out of functioning within a shorter span of time. We offer our customers FREE puncture repairs. Moreover, your car could go downhill, and cost you more for replacing the tyres. To avoid this problem, it would be better to check the tyre pressure regularly, also, have it refilled as and when required. Always refer to your manufacturer’s handbook on the pressures of your tyres or if you don’t have one to hand, you could always search on Google. 



It is vitally important to keep an eye on your vehicles fluids and filter, this helps run your car efficiently, and has a lot to do with how your car performs, affecting its durability and wear and tear. If it is not being replaced at regular intervals, it could potentially impact your car’s condition. Keep a diary of when you last changed your fluid and filter. If you have taken it to Motor City Plymouth, they will give you a service report. Make sure you keep it in a safe place.


And finally…
