Here at Dick Dyer Volvo, we love it when you come in to see us-whether you're looking for a new car or just in need of some routine maintenance. However, we also want to provide you with the ultimate in customer service, and that includes informing you about all the common car care you can perform for yourself right at home.

While that means you won't see us here at Dick Dyer Volvo, it does mean we can save you lots of time and money by performing car maintenance at home. First of all, you can always clean your car at home. Cleaning your car is not only cosmetic, either; it helps you keep an eye on the overall health of your vehicle. Make sure to clean both the exterior and interior regularly to keep grime and dirt from building up anywhere on your vehicle.

You can also perform simple maintenance tasks like oil changes, replacing brakes, windshield wipers, and tires, or re-filling the fluids in your vehicle at home. You can usually find very helpful how-to videos on these kinds of maintenance tasks on YouTube. You can also consult your owner's manual or maintenance schedule for extra advice. Check your windshield wiper, antifreeze, and other fluid levels often to keep your vehicle running smoothly.

Not only will performing these vehicle care tasks at home save you time and money, they will also form a closer relationship between you and your vehicle. You'll get to know how it works, what it needs, and what makes it tick better by working on it. Plus, you'll discover the joy of a job well done in the process. Come see us here at Dick Dyer afterwards to celebrate your accomplishments with us! When you do need a little help, make sure you are choosing the best fit for your maintenance needs.
