Sometimes people forget about it until it is too late. If you don’t keep track of all the things that need to be replaced or serviced you increase the risk of a breakdown.

Now that you have the right maintenance guide, how do you remember when to get your car serviced? Here are our tips on how to keep track of car maintenance:
Create calendar reminders on your phone. Schedule all major services outlined in your owner’s manual and don’t forget to change the oil every 5,000 km.
Download an app like Vehicle Maintenance Tracker that will not only remind you when your next service is due but will keep a maintenance record.
Write down your car’s maintenance intervals in your planner or journal, and add their due dates into your calendar.
If you have a newer vehicle, the service light will let you know when the next maintenance is due. Don’t ignore this message, and bring your car into the workshop.
