There is a number of the elementary checks which regular performance, taking away only a few minutes, allows to avoid time of considerable expenses of time and means.

Performance of the weekly checks given below does not demand use of the special tool and takes away a little time. So:
 • Try to watch a state and pressure of a rating of tires. The conscientious attitude to this requirement will allow not only to avoid premature wear of protectors, but, sometimes, to avoid hit in an emergency.
 • Many violations are connected with violation of functioning of electric equipment. Failures of the rechargeable battery are the most typical, and therefore, regular check of a state of the last becomes prime guarantee of reliable functioning of electric systems of the car.
 • Leak of brake fluid is at first shown only in decrease in efficiency of braking, and therefore, in order to avoid hit in an emergency, try to check the level of hydraulic liquid regularly.
 • Excessive decrease in level of motive oil or cooling liquid can bring to serious internal damages of the power unit which capital repairs will take away much more time and means, than conducting regular checks and timely elimination of the reasons of leaks.
