CHECKS YOU CAN DO REGULARLY
There are a handful of quick checks you can frequently do to stay proactive and catch any issue early. Make a habit of checking the engine oil level every time you stop to refuel. Once a month, check the pressure in your tires and the windshield washer fluid level to make sure they are adequate.
