At some point, pretty much every vehicle will suffer a breakdown. When that day comes, you may need to take your vehicle to an auto repair service.
That being said, regular maintenance and upkeep may reduce the risk of your car breaking down.
If you don't have the time to maintain your vehicle yourself, you can also take it in for regular maintenance at an auto repair service shop. A trained and skilled mechanic can look over your vehicle and ensure that everything is in proper working order.
First, you or the mechanic should check all the fluids, including the brakes, power steering, and transmission fluids. Make sure that the fluids are filled to the proper level. Don't forget to check and fill the windshield washer fluid either. It's also important to read any directions on the fluid bottles closely. For example, when you refill brake fluid, you should open a new bottle as opened bottles of fluid go bad quickly.
It's also vital to regularly change the oil to ensure that your tires are properly inflated and that everything is in good working order. As you can see, maintaining a vehicle takes some work, but so many people turn to professional mechanics.
