It is important for all vehicle owners to have a well-maintained vehicle that is safe to be on the road before taking it on the road! Just like any other vehicle, the Land Rover should have regular maintenance on different parts of the vehicle which we will elaborate on in the text to follow.
What should be maintained?
If you are a Land Rover owner, here are a few important things to look after on your vehicle:
- Tire pressure
- Regular oil changes as suggested by your Land Rover dealer
- Avoiding short trips in the winter
How to maintain a good tire pressure?
When you notice a tire starting to be flat on the bottom where the tire does not keep its round shape all the way around the tire, it is a sign that your tire should be inflated. It’s also good to make sure that you are not inflating your tires to the point that your tire will rip when driving or burst.
Typically, your car should stay between 32 psi to 35 psi, 35 psi should be in colder temperatures while 32 is better for very hot parts of the year, finding a good psi is the key to maintaining your Land Rover’s tire pressure.
How often should I change my car’s oil?
Newer cars from 2007-8 and later should have their oil changed quite regularly. For your Land Rover, if you typically take it on longer journeys, meaning more than 5 miles at a time in typical weather and more than 10 miles in colder temperatures, you should change your oil anywhere between every 5 to 7 thousand miles. However, if you are using your Land Rover in harsher conditions such as dirt roads or shorter distances than the ones mentioned above, you should aim to change your oil every 3 to 4 thousand miles to maintain your vehicle.
