Not knowing exactly why that light has come on might trouble you, but you might not notice anything wrong with the vehicle. That is why you might also be wondering if it is ok to just keep driving with the light on.

How Often Should You Change Your Spark Plugs?

Our vehicles also require adequate upkeep services to detect any underlying issues in the system and prevent them from worsening. Due to this reason, most manufacturers recommend scheduled factory maintenance or 30/60/90K vehicle maintenance, which implies that every vehicle must receive proper maintenance services every 30,000 miles to keep it functioning efficiently and safely. Each mileage interval is a milestone requiring maintenance for specific systems or components of the vehicle. Is 30/60/90K Maintenance really Important? Upkeep of your vehicle should never be optional. Preventive maintenance identifies faulty vehicle systems so that they can be fixed early on. Timely maintenance service not only keeps the vehicle in favorable driving conditions but also saves the owner from future expensive and unexpected ... read more
