Vehicle Maintenance

Driving a car brings with it the responsibility of being a safe and courteous road user, and part of that responsibility is to ensure your vehicle is well maintained. A well maintained vehicle will help minimise the possibility of a malfunction that might lead to an accident, making the road a safer place for you and other road users.

So if you’re not a qualified mechanic or regular petrolhead, how will you know what to check? Of course, you can’t take your vehicle to a Monroe Safety Specialist every time you need to check the oil or put air in your tyres. Monroe understands that there are many different vehicle owners with greatly varied levels of knowledge on effective vehicle maintenance, so our aim is to make it easy for you.

This blog will provide regular updates on all the important and preventative steps you need to take in order to own a properly maintained – and safe – vehicle. Many of these posts will describe things you can do yourself, or remind you to have your car checked by a professional.

Monroe is here to help you Drive Safe, so please come back regularly for more vehicle maintenance ideas and tips.
