Routine vehicle maintenance is critical. It helps ensure that your vehicle performs the way it’s supposed to; it keeps you safe, and it extends your vehicle’s lifespan. But how can you tell when your car or truck needs a little extra attention? How can you tell when it needs something above and beyond routine oil changes and tire rotations?
