Tips to keep your vehicle safe and in good running order

KUALA LUMPUR: The increased prevalence of vehicle breakdowns and malfunctions in recent times only serves as a stark reminder of the importance of regular maintenance.

This becomes especially crucial during peak seasons, such as the upcoming Lunar New Year celebrations, when roads typically witness heightened traffic and car owners spend more hours behind the wheel.

Regular maintenance and frequent check-ups could also save some serious costs and ensure peace of mind – while leading to other potential rewards.

Regular maintenance is not just about keeping your car in good shape.

It's a commitment to the longevity of your vehicle and the safety of yourself, your passengers and everyone on the road.

Timely oil changes, tyre rotations and brake inspections are essential for optimal performance.


Regular check-ups can also detect potential issues before they escalate into more serious issues, preventing costly repairs and ensuring the vehicle remains reliable on every journey.

Practical tips to consider:

Oil changes and fluid checks
Schedule regular oil changes as per your vehicle's specifications.
Check and top up fluids, including brake fluid, radiator coolant and transmission fluid.

Tyre care
Rotate tyres regularly to ensure even wear.
Maintain proper tyre pressure for improved fuel efficiency and traction.

How to go far on less
Air filter maintenance
Inspect and replace air filters as recommended by your vehicle's manual.
A clean air filter enhances engine performance and fuel efficiency.

Brake inspections
Regularly check brake pads and discs for wear and tear.
Address any unusual noises or sensations promptly.


One of the main reasons for unexpected breakdowns is neglecting routine maintenance.

Imagine being stranded on a busy highway during peak hour!

In addition to regular maintenance, having comprehensive insurance coverage is a crucial aspect of responsible vehicle ownership.

Reputable insurance providers such as Liberty Insurance, Kurnia Insurans, and AmAssurance offer not only financial protection but also peace of mind.

Additional services like towing assistance add an extra layer of security, ensuring that help is just a phone call away in case of emergencies.

Be sure to regularly review and update your insurance coverage to ensure it adequately meets all your needs and requirements.
