Understanding Car Workshop Options | DirectAsia Insurance

Safe driving is important but the condition of your vehicle is also a key factor. This is where vehicle maintenance comes into play. With early intervention, you can not only restore the state of your vehicle but also maintain it. It also helps preserve vehicle value and appearance besides ensuring improved driver safety. After all, it won’t matter even if you’re practicing safe driving, if your brakes fail.

What Ensures Safe Driving?

Safe driving depends greatly on clear visibility and driver-to-driver communication. A cracked or damaged windshield increases the risk of accidents due to poor visibility. This makes it impossible to see other vehicles, pedestrians, wildlife, lights, and sign boards on rainy days. Vehicle lights, too, are a necessity when driving at night, so other drivers are aware of your presence and your navigational intentions. If your wipers, mirrors, and lights aren’t working this adds danger on the road and highways.

Moreover, a dead battery may not seem dangerous; but on the road, any wheel or engine failure may prove catastrophic. When brakes are not properly maintained, they affect vehicle reaction time or fail altogether. Whereas flat or threadbare tires may result in blowouts or can be dangerous on wet, slippery surfaces. In addition, improperly maintained engines may result in engine fire, so make sure to schedule regular oil changes.

In a nutshell, badly maintained vehicles put every road user at risk. Therefore, do your part and keep up with your vehicle maintenance checks. As some car maintenance routines differ from vehicle to vehicle,  make sure to check your vehicle’s manual for specifics.

Additional benefits of regular preventive car maintenance:

• Reduces future costly vehicle repairs

• Improves vehicle performance

• Decreases the risk of being stranded (if your car breaks down)

To keep it simple, if you want to extend your car’s engine life, then you have to service your car regularly.

Here are some everyday services which car workshops in Singapore offer customers:

  1. Repairing and replacement of flat tyres
