my consultant advice me to service my car every 6 month or max 10k mileage, it depend which one come 1st. Better do the service constantly, if not many part will easily get problem. If you go back to perodua, i think they got the service schedule for you.

So your vehicle just put at home? how often you use the vehicle per week, better start the engine sometimes even you didnt use it, if not the engine will have some problem. Lubricant oil also important, use branded oil is better than cheap and unknown product.

Are you serving loan payment for the AXIA? if yes then not worth, having new car but no used it. However, if usually drive also need the petrol cost, still finding a way to cut cost, public transport at my area not convenience.

Everyone also want to cut cost on petrol but the price always remain the same. When i sent my car to service, the workshop introduce me petronas new petrol and say that can help us to save money. I tried for few week, it actually work.

branded oil have the good quality to protect our vehicle engine, normally people tend to pick the cheap product, then the engine start having problem. And i start refill petronas petrol to protect my engine, as the primax prodrive can clean up the vehicle engine.
