In order that your car was in a fine condition, it is necessary to carry out its maintenance periodically. Service is necessary for carrying out as constantly, and through certain intervals which are brought below. These are the minimum intervals of service recommended by the management.

If the car is maintained under trying conditions, in particular in the dusty district, with trailer towage on small speeds or on short trips, it is recommended to make maintenance more often.
