Preventing Car Accidents Through Regular Service
When people think about car accidents, they usually think about reckless driving or drivers who fail to pay proper attention to the road. What most people don’t think about, however, is poor car maintenance causing accidents. Without regular maintenance and service on your car, you are far more likely to be in an accident caused by overworked and worn mechanical components.
Not all accidents caused by mechanical parts are due to infrequent maintenance. Some mechanical failures are due to shoddy parts. If you or someone you love has been injured in a car accident caused by mechanical failure, you may be able to sue the manufacturer for damages.

Vehicle Service Guidelines
Even though cars are more advanced than they have ever been in the past, they still require regular service. If you’re interested in keeping your car in good running order for as long as possible, you should adhere to the following service schedule:
- Have your oil changed every 3,000 miles. Oil lubricates your engine and keeps it running. Regular oil changes can seriously increase the lifespan of your vehicle.
- Rotate your tires every 6,000 to 10,000 miles, depending on the kind of driving you do. The rougher the roads, the more regularly you should rotate the tires.
- Get your wheels balanced and aligned every 12,000 miles to prevent long-term damage due to poor tracking.
- Have a full engine tune-up every 3-5 years, depending on how you drive – the more you accelerate and drive quickly, the more often you should have it tuned.
