Vehicle Maintenance

A vehicle service contract can be an excellent way to maintain the value of your vehicle – but it’s not the only way. Regular vehicle maintenance is also an important part of protecting your investment and keeping your car or truck in good working order.

The VPA and the vehicle service contract industry are committed to helping consumers protect the value and performance of their vehicles. To help you keep your vehicle in peak condition, we have compiled a list of practical vehicle maintenance tips and resources.

  • Consumer Tip: Maintain Your Vehicle - No matter what type of vehicle protection product you purchase, don't forget that you still need to, at a minimum, do routine vehicle manufacturer recommended maintenance.
  • Tire Maintenance - Underinflated tires can undermine your car's performance. In cold weather, tires lose air pressure, so it's especially important to check your tires prior to and during the winter cold season.
