6 Essential Guidelines to Maximize Your New Car’s Performance

If you’re the owner of a new car, it is important to get acquainted with one item that will help you maintain your vehicle and save you time and money in the long run. This item is the owner’s manual, which you may find in the glove compartment of your newly purchased auto once it is handed over to you by the dealer.

Even though it seems like a long read, it is beneficial to invest time reading the manual to familiarize yourself with your vehicle’s needs. The information contained in it can also help you maximize the performance of your car and keep you safe on the road. 

Here are six essential guidelines you will find in your owner’s manual. 

  1. Maintenance schedule

Your vehicle will need different types of services once it reaches certain mileage markers. Familiarize yourself with these services and why they are recommended by the manufacturer. Owner’s manuals sometimes come with pages of service history and repair information so you can keep track of all those items.

  1. Fluid requirements

There may be specific fluids that are recommended for your vehicle. This may be indicated in your owner’s manual. Following these specifications will help you maintain your vehicle’s peak performance. If you don’t follow the specified fluid requirements, that could cause damage to your auto. Such damage could invalidate its warranty. 

  1. Reminders

Your owner’s manual includes a schedule for your car’s oil changes and tire rotations. Follow it to keep your car in tip-top shape.

  1. Warning indicators

Your vehicle’s control panel has several light indicators whose meanings may be hard to decipher. Acquaint yourself with these symbols so you can act swiftly when these pop up on your dashboard. 

  1. Warranty information

Your owner’s manual contains information on parts and repairs that are covered by warranty. You have to know the coverage of this warranty so you can avoid getting services or repairs that could nullify its coverage. You’ll also get information on how and where to get roadside assistance along with the contact details.

  1. Ideal tire pressure

Your owner’s manual will indicate the ideal pressure for your vehicle’s tires so they can last longer and perform better on the road.
