Owning a car is like having a child or a wife. In fact there are men who call their cars my baby or my wife, so it's evident that cars need to be maintained just like you take cate of your child or wife. Men are known to take care of their cars better than their better halves and i just wonder how that happens. On one side it is a human and on the other side it's a machine which is more important? The priorities in some people's lives are sometimes misplaced. Bit anyway, cars have to be maintained and serviced regularly for better performance, which by the way if ignored can lead to damages, thus costing you much more than you thought you would spend. Maintenance also enables you to keep the car in good shape and avoid unnecessary spending.
