Here is the top 10 list for your car’s needs:
1. Tyre alignment
Your tyres are everything – it determines your car’s interaction with the road and is the catalyst for your driving journey and safety.
A bad tyre alignment will have your car pulled in the wrong direction constantly, evoke strange steering wheel vibrations and cause uneven tread wear in the long run.
Before these issues arise, it is essential to get your tyres checked every 6 months. Your mechanic will check for issues contributing to misalignment such as worn bearings, faulty suspension parts and specific angles of the tyres.
The angle of your tyres is essential in determining their road interaction.
Your mechanic will be aligning the inward/outward angle of your tyre (the camber and toe alignments) and the caster angle to ensure the right balance steering, stability for good cornering in high speeds.
2. Interior cleaning and leather steaming
Vacuuming and wiping the interiors of your car aren’t enough to kill every single dust mite and allergen particle. Consider sending your car for hydro-steaming, a triple action formula that uses water, steam and hydro-jet to sanitize and eliminate all dust particles, bugs and dirt!
Not only do you get a fresher and pleasant environment to drive in, you’ll be preventing any allergy outbreaks. Add on a premium leather steaming experience to polish your car’s leathery surfaces to maintain its supple condition.
3. Exterior Ultimate Paint Protection Film
We live in a country full of birds. That comes with the fear of having occasional bird droppings on our cars and having to combat weather elements of the harsh sun and rain that will eventually wear out our car exterior.
Consider investing in an entire body protective film to preserve your car’s exterior. Our recommended pick is the UPPF – the Ultimate Paint Protection Film. Not only is it water repellent, it repels the harsh Ultra Violet Rays from the sun, preserving your car paint for a longer period. Its anti-corrosion properties will protect your paintwork from scratches incurred by occasional falling branches, gravel or stones.
4. Aircon servicing and cleaning
Another essential feature for a humid country like Singapore is our car air-conditioning. Rolling down our car windows for an occasional breath of fresh air works, but we’ll need proper air conditioning while we drive on most days.
We’ll advise a routine air conditioning servicing every 3 to 6 months to maintain a hygienic and conducive environment. Not only does the routine servicing eradicate hidden fungus and bacteria breeding inside your air conditioning system, it ensures your air conditioner lasts for a longer period too.
5. UV Guard
While the hot sun is inevitable, you can most certainly get a UV-guard to block out your sunrays. It’s like sunscreen for your car windows and cuts irritating glares while you’re on the road.
You can consider U Guard car film, a transmission technology that blocks out UV rays for a cooling ride and reduce fuel consumption. Another great technology is the 3M Automotive Window Film Crystalline Series, a paper-thin film that uses Nano-technology to reject heat, without compromising your optical clarity.
6. Full brake check
Naturally, this is the most important safety feature of your car. It is essential to do this once every 6 months to prevent a brake system failure during crucial moments.
A bad brake is less responsive which requires more effort to push the pedal. It may cause your car to be pulled to one direction when you brake or incur strange steering wheel vibrations.
You may also encounter grinding noises if your brake pads wear out.
These are warning signs that your brakes need serious servicing and it is also advisable to send your car to a workshop prior to these issues occurring. Your mechanic will check for minimum brake pad thickness, the caliper piston and brake rotors.
7. Exhaust check
Your car’s exhaust system regulates the fuel efficiency in your vehicle. It directs harmful fumes out from your car and prevents you and your passengers from any inhalation of these gases.
A malfunctioning exhaust system will evoke a strange smell of gas in your car due to leakage, hissing noises from the engine with decreased engine performance and fuel efficiency.
Therefore do send your car for an emission test to ensure it is not expelling poisonous gases into the air. This diagnostic test will also give you a clearer picture of your exhaust system.
8. Windscreen wipers check
Windscreen wipers are the key to optimal clarity when you drive and your shield your visibility from heavy rains and other debris on the roads. Often neglected, do check your windscreen wipers once every 6 months for wear and tear or cracks and for a replacement if necessary.
9. Oil change and filter replacement
Maximize your car’s performance with oil changes and filter replacement. Excessive oil once deposited into the filter can cause severe wear to the engine while excessive heat can lead to thermal breakdown and decreased oil flow.
A quick oil change and filter replacement will ensure your engine is running smoothly at maximum performance.
