Schedule of routine maintenance

The intervals of routine maintenance of the car stipulated in the present Section are calculated on independent performance by the owner of the vehicle of all necessary procedures. Duration of intervals was defined proceeding from the assumption that the car is operated in the daily mode. Only on condition of a conscientious attitude of the owner to care of the vehicle it is possible to achieve the maximum return from the power unit of the car and its other knots and systems. It is worth to remember as well about need of maintenance of a trade dress of the car on a case of its resale. Constantly to support the vehicle at peak of a form, the following procedures should be performed slightly more often:

Outside of the car

In the car

Under a cowl

At operation of the car in the conditions of strongly dusty and broken roads, an intense city cycle (frequent short trips, long operation of the engine idling), negative temperature, and also at frequent towage of the trailer, intervals of performing procedures of routine maintenance have to be, whenever possible, reduced to a minimum.
