How To Maintain Your Mahindra Car With These Tips

62

Properly maintaining your Mahindra car at regular intervals with the recommended service schedules, is of utmost importance. This ensures that you get most of your vehicle. Without proper maintenance at the recommended time periods that are mentioned in the car manual, the life of the car diminishes dramatically.

The owner’s manual of all Mahindra vehicles comes with a ‘Maintenance Schedule Chart’ in the ‘After Driving Section’. In this section, it is clearly stated the proposed time periods after which your car must be sent to an authorized service centre.

Here are some tips on how to keep your Mahindra car in top-notch condition:

Regularly Check Engine Oil:

The mechanical parts inside of the engine will stop working smoothly if the oil is not checked and changed regularly. Not changing the oil causes friction between the parts that can ultimately lead it to wear out.

Regularly Clean Your Car:

The exterior of your car can be saved from wearing off by taking some simple measures. Use transparent tape to prevent the bumper and grille from any insects or pebbles. Polish your car at least three to four times a year to make sure that the paint does not wear off. It is also important to properly get the car washed with a proper jet spray or at a good car wash centre.

Regularly Check the Battery:

When the engine is completely turned off, you can have a look at the battery. It is important to check if the exterior of the battery has been corroded. If there is any corrosion, mix baking soda with warm water to clean it off. For the battery to last longer, fill distilled water in it.

Regularly Check the Tyres And Wheel Alignment:

Every time you go to refuel your car at the gas station, it is important to get the tyre pressure checked out as well. If the tyre pressure is not correct, it affects the mileage of the car. Aligning the wheel is also equally important as it ensures a better grip on the road and improves the life of the tyres too.

Regularly Check the Brake Fluid:

Maintaining the brake fluid is important as every other fluid of the vehicle. The fact that the brake fluid absorbs moisture from the air is its major problem. As a result of this, the brake fluid’s boiling point reduces, and it boils under heavy braking. The hydraulic operation of the braking system thus gets affected, reducing the effectiveness of the brakes and creates a spongy brake pedal. Therefore, to avoid these circumstances, it is important to get the brake fluid checked and replaced every 2 years.

Regularly Check for Vibrations and Odd Sounds:

It is important to make a note of any odd vibrations that may take place inside the car. Observe this keenly when the car is in motion or is standing at any signal and the engine is on. In case, there is any such noise, it should be immediately taken to the mechanic to be examined and corrected.

Using Parking Brakes:

This is an uncommon one but is an important aspect of car maintenance, nonetheless. It is advised to use the hand brakes often; especially when in an inclined area or the vehicle comes with an automatic transmission. This enhances the life of the brakes and keeps it adjusted in the rear of the car. However, the handbrakes must be applied only when the vehicle is in neutral or when the clutch is pressed.

Regular Check for Safety:

It is important to get your car checked to ensure that it is safe for the riders. Vehicle Preventive Maintenance and care should be followed to ensure that the brakes and every other part of the car are in good condition to keep you and your co-passengers safe from any unwanted disaster.

Other tips for maintaining the Mahindra car:

  • Use a cleanser and a scratch-free towel to clean the glass surfaces.
  • Regularly check the interior lights, taillights and headlights.
  • Try driving at a speed of 60km-80km per hour.
  • Shift gears carefully. Incorrect shifts in the gear lead to excess oil consumption.
  • Use good lubricants and engine oils as mentioned in the owner’s manual.
  • Switch off the engine of the car when the car is standing at the traffic signal.
  • Do not overweight the car unnecessarily.
  • Keep the Air Condition’s mode according to the temperature outside.

While you drive your Mahindra car proudly on the roads, following these tips will help save a fortune when it comes to servicing and maintenance. Save some extra trips to the garage by parking your car in the shade and keeping it in an overall good shape.
