Car Care

Engine

Your engine is the most important part of your car. As such, you have to take
special care to ensure that it is running smoothly without a hitch.

O1

Know How the Engine Works

Try to know as much as you can on how the engine runs. Though you may not be a motorhead, knowing how the soul of your car works will help you take good care of your vehicle. An easy way to do so is to ask service technicians any questions you may have on your car’s running. Additionally, you can refer to Maruti Suzuki’s website for detailed and most relevant information.

Know the Sounds of Your Car

Each car develops its own special set of bells and whistles after a few hundred kilometres of running. Knowing about these noises will help you identify strange ones and you can take the car to a service station to get them checked before any problem occurs.

Car Repaire

Get your Car Serviced Regularly

The normal recommendation is one servicing every 5,000 kilometres. However, if you are planning a long car trip and the servicing limit is near, opt to get the car serviced before you go.

Know the Warning Lights

This may sound strange but most of us have no clue what to do when a warning light flashes on.

O4
Check the Fluids and Oils
O5

Check the
Fluids and Oils

Keep a tab on the coolant, engine oil, brake oil, power steering fluid and windshield washer liquid. Top up the liquids when the level is low. You can add the engine oil, coolant and windshield washer fluid yourself without much problem though you should get an authorised Marui Suzuki technician to check the brake and power steering fluids.

O6

Air Filters

Used for the AC unit, it is essential to keep your air filters clean to breathe fresh air inside the car. A dirty air filter will cause discomfort and medical problems for people with dust or pollen allergies. Maruti Suzuki technicians check the air filter every time a car comes in for servicing. However, if you live in a dusty area, it makes sense to get the filter cleaned more often.

Exteriors

Exteriors

Taking care of your car’s exteriors will keep it looking new for a considerably longer period. Also, you will be able to avoid any long-term damage from rust, scratches and dents. Here are a few things to do to take care of your car.

Wash Regularly

Wash Regularly

Wash the car on a regular basis to keep it looking new. Remove the leaves and debris that collect on the engine cowling as they would otherwise get inside the drains, leading to a damp smell. Also, clean the edges of the windshield wiper blades as they accumulate dust and may scratch the windshield. For washing, use a proper liquid soap and soft brushes and clothes that do not scratch the paint.

Check the Tyres

Keep a regular check on the wear and tear of your tyres. Though Maruti technicians generally take care of tyre rotation during servicing, it is up to you to ensure that the tyres have sufficient tyre pressure in-between the servicing periods. It makes sense to go for tubeless tyres if you travel on bad city roads. The cost may be slightly more but you save on unnecessary punctures in the middle of the road and the repair time is much quicker than that for tube tyres.

Check the Tyres

Wax or Teflon Coating

It’s good to keep your car waxed or if you are up for it, to get it Teflon coated. The coating helps protect the car from minor scratches besides hiding old ones and even covering up minor dents. Also, getting the car waxed can turn even a dull looking car into a shiny new thoroughbred.

Wax or Teflon Coating

Go for Rust-Proofing

Go for Rust-ProofingYour car’s underbody contains some important parts – rust proofing them will ensure no corrosion occurs and the parts stay protected. It is essential that you opt for rust-proofing your car’s underbody especially if you stay in a rain-prone area – which in India means nearly everywhere except maybe Ladakh and the Rann of Kutch. And even in these regions, it makes sense to protect the car’s underbody from the corrosive sand and salt.

Glass Care

Glass Care

Take special care of the glass and clean them with mild soap or eco-friendly glass cleaners. In case, some windows or the windshield have small cracks, it is best to repair them in authorised Maruti Service Stations or replace them as soon as it is possible.
