There are many things included in a typical car service. Below are three of the most common things included, as well as various problems that can lead to needing major car repair.

Oil Change

A typical car service should include an oil change. These days people are driving much more often and further, so getting an oil change is a must. It is easy to go over the manufacturer's recommendation for an oil change without realizing it. If if you don't get an oil change on a regular basis, your engine could become damaged. This means you'll end up paying a lot of money to get it fixed.

In a Consumer Reports study, the publication stated that driving with a tire with even half its tread life left led to a significant decrease in traction and overall safety in rainy or snowy conditions. Driving on a "bald" tire with much less than half its tread life left is even more risky, as drivers will not only see a marked decline in traction during foul weather but can be at risk of blowouts as well.

How do you know when the time has come to get new tires? You will need to give your current set a good inspection. Treads use 1/32-inch increments to measure depth, with most new tires having a tread depth of around 10/32 inches. When your tread reaches 2/32 inches, it is considered bald and is due for replacement, but how can you be sure?

The transmission is one of the most important parts of the vehicle. Between the manual and automatic systems, the automatic is the most popular due to its ease of use. However, the automatic can be easy to break and very expensive to replace, and without it the vehicle is not going anywhere. This is why routine transmission service is so important. It is important for the vehicle owner to know which components should be inspected during a transmission service.

The first and foremost thing that should be checked is the transmission fluid. Though it seems like a simple task, the fluid level, color, and even the smell can all determine the condition of the transmission. Foul odor and discoloration are indicators of a potential transmission repair issue. For cars that are being considered for purchase, one with bad transmission fluid is like a waving red flag. Road tests for both automatic and manual vehicles are also conducted to test for poor shifting, noise, slipping, choppiness, etc.
