A tune-up, or scheduled maintenance, will help prevent your vehicle from rapidly degrading. Regular upkeep and maintenance for your vehicle will keep the many different components and systems of your car from breaking or failing.
If you’d like a better, more specific idea of when you should plan your tune-up, refer to the user manual for your vehicle’s manufacturer and model make. Your vehicle’s manufacturer will have a suggested maintenance schedule that you can refer to that proposes recommended times to address different parts or your vehicle. Of course, you should always schedule maintenance or repairs if you know or believe there is something wrong with your vehicle. Maintenance schedules for tune-ups provided by your manufacturer will help you plan out any preventative maintenance.
