  1. I read an article a few months ago about car wash directly at your doorstep. This service is provided to car owners who don't have time to bring their car to a car shop for car wash. I find this really helpful especially that I won't need to go somewhere and just enjoy my day while my car is being pampered. Does any of you think this is a great idea? or does this have a disadvantage on our part? Your thoughts are highly appreciated.
  2. Another possible reason why your car is overheating is due to a broken water pump or a leak in the cooling system. You can check those part so that you can fix it or have it replaced. However, I think its best to bring your car to your trusted car shop to have it diagnosed for possible repair. Hope this helps!
  3. Thanks for this. Maintaining our car's interior in the best condition can be a little tricky and time-consuming. For me, I always make sure to clean my interior before parking my car in the garage. I make time to at least remove all the dirt and wipe some areas every day. Additionally, I visit my trusted car shop at least once every month so that my mechanic can clean every nook and cranny of my car. Doing this is really helpful to our car's condition. Hope this helps!
  4. As a car owner, it's one of our responsibilities to purchase car insurance as it will not just our car but also to the future expenses we might need to pay. In our country, we are required to purchase CTPL insurance before getting our car registered. Which I also find beneficial. Is this also regulated in some countries? And what are the car insurance you find important? Your thoughts are highly appreciated.
  5. Most of us already know the importance of car maintenance and its benefits to our car. However, we still encounter some hindrance of accomplishing it like the time and effort we will exert for us to attend our maintenance schedule. I've read several articles which introduce maintenance valet service in different countries. There's a similar service offered in my area which I find very useful. I once booked a service when I had scheduled maintenance during office hours. Through this, I was able to have my car maintained while I'm in the office. Did anyone book a similar service? Do you find it useful and how was your experience? It would be great if you could share your thoughts.
  6. Do You Find Roadside Assistance useful as a car owner? Like you would want to save their contact as they will be the first one you would call in terms of any car related trouble?
  7. This is a great list and very helpful to all car owners. Maintaining our car can extend the car's lifespan, limit car shop visits as well as ensuring that our car is working reliably. Other than the list, I also make sure to follow a car maintenance guide to ensure that my car is properly maintained. Thanks for sharing this!
  8. There are several causes why our car engines are overheating. This issue can be caused by a blown head gasket, plugged heater core, stuck thermostat, water pump failure, and radiator blockage. What I usually do is to check these parts and analyze if I can handle the repair. However, I still recommend visiting your trusted car shop to have it checked for possible repair. Doing this will fix the problem accordingly as well as avoid worsening the problem. Hope this helps!
  9. Extensive Exhaust Leak can cause harm if not repaired properly. If there's an extensive rusting of your exhaust system, you need to replace all or parts of it. If there are only a small leak, it can be resolved using exhaust tape or epoxy. However, to ensure that it will be fixed without any problem you can visit your trusted car shop to have it properly diagnose and repair.

  10. Leather fibers weaken as they are exposed to sweat which can cause cracks to the leather in the long run. In your case, you can try to vacuum the leather if it will lessen the problem as that's what I usually do. However, you can also visit your trusted car shop to have a better recommendation. It would also best to constantly wipe off your leather seats to clean the area and to avoid problems like this in the future. Hope this helps!
  11. Great post and thanks for listing down the information. Routine checks may take our time but doing this routinely will save us time and money in the future.

  12. About a month ago, I read an article about the benefits of drivers on demand. Then a few days ago I read a news about companies offering driver on demand service in several locations. This actually provides a driving service to car owners who needs assistance for a certain time. It's good that there's a similar service offered in my area and I've heard a lot of positive feedback about it. Anyone here who tried on availing a similar service? How was the experience? Also, does anyone want this kind of service to be offered in their location?
  13. About an hour ago, I read an article about the New 2020 Toyota Highlander. The new release stands to make the big crossover even bigger. It's more stylish, economical, and technologically advance. This new model also makes the journey more comfortable as it widens the space. What do you think of this new model?

  16. Service like this is very helpful to car owners because there are times that we just want to rest while on the road. There's a similar service like this in the Philippines that I read and it's called driver on demand. This is not a beta because James Deakin is already using it.
  17. The possible reason why your check engine light is activated would be a damaged gas cap, your oxygen sensor needs to be replaced or your vehicle needs new spark plugs or plug wires. Situation like this should not be prolonged as this will potentially damage your car as well as it could risk your safety. The best solution for this is to get your engine checked to your trusted car shop for possible repair. Hope this helps!
  18. This problem is usually caused by an improper rear brake adjustment. Other than what you've mentioned, I think you should check if your rear brake pads are already worn out.

Having Car Serviced Regularly will help to Maintains Your Car’s Overall Value One thing to note about cars is that value is almost everything.
