Share The Same Basic Needs
Like every vehicle, your body has some basic requirements that need to be met so that it can remain healthy. For example, you need to make sure that your fluids are topped up, that your moving parts need are lubricated and that you perform regular check ups as the milage racks up. Without a proper scheduled maintenance plan, you risk early wear and tear, which could end up costing you a lot more than money.
2 Ways To Maintain Your Vehicle:
Reactive vs Preventative Maintenance
Reactive maintenance begins when something in your vehicle abruptly breaks, like when your engine overheats on the way to the grocery store or you find yourself winded when you walk up and down the stairs a few times. Stuff like this often costs a fair amount to fix, and when something does finally break, a lot of other systems are taken out with it because all the parts rely on each other to function properly.
Preventive maintenance involves seeing your doctor-mechanic regularly for check-ups in order to make sure your vehicle’s running optimally. They can make sure your fluids and joints are working just right, and can evaluate your systems for early signs of wear-and-tear.
… An Ounce Of Prevention
It’s ultimately your choice on how you want to maintain your vehicle. There will always be people who’ll wait till there’s oil on their driveway floor before they see a mechanic. Others only book an appointment when their engine light is flashing. And then there are the people follow their car’s owner’s manual because performance and efficiency make the journey allot more enjoyable.
So what kind of "vehicle/body owner" are you?
- Pragmatic: Those who want to be “healthy enough,” but no more.
- Fanatic: Those who go to the gym nine times a week and weigh their food.
- Fix-it’s: Those who want their doctor to fix things when they break.
- Preventer: Those who reasonably want to prevent preventable diseases and chronic health issues.
Which one of these would you buy a car from?
