Buying a car is easy for many, but the task gets serious when it comes to maintenance. Especially European cars need proper maintenance. These cars are undeniably good for driving and these can be called a keen driver’s car, but one needs to be highly careful with their maintenance. At the same time, you should be aware of the possible problems you can face and their solutions.
Avoid expenses of repairing and focus on regular maintenance
You will enjoy driving but car parts are hard to find and you have to buy it from that country paying a shipping charge. So, it is a real problem when you need a repair, it takes so much time. If you can follow some general rules of maintenance then you do not have to regularly pay for its maintenance and repair.

Some DIY tips for maintaining your car
Check the transmission more often:
Checking the transmission often is also a trick to maintain your car. This is the part of the car which deteriorates often and you have to replace it. If you have purchased a car which is made in your country, then you do not have to worry soon because more often you have to check it after driving 30000 miles. If you purchase car from European countries, then you should check the transmission parts every 20000 to 30000 miles, this is not a heavy task for a car owner. This trick will save your transmission replacing cost but you should keep up the regular servicing of the car. Make sure you choose specialised service centres to repair or service your car. For example, if you have a mini copper, make sure you choose a service centre that offers reliable mini cooper service.
Check the octane rating on gas:
Most of the cars need gas for running and European cars need a separate octane rating from other countries, and it is quite similar to the United States. If the gas is unavailable in your country, then you should not buy that car. If you put wrong gas, then your engine may work but it will have to press harder and engine may fail after some time. Other parts will also malfunction and it will finally damage your car. If you use your car this way, then running cost will be high and you will need regular repair. Only use the fuel type which is suggested in the car manual and of course keep in mind the octane rating.
Pay more attention to alignment:
Sports cars are expensive, so when you drive you should maintain the right alignment as it will help to make your car safe from damage because the parts of those cars are expensive. Normal cars should be checked in every 2 or 3 years.
