Here are a few key things you should look at in your car owner’s manual:

Types and Capacities of Fluids

Fluids are literally the lifeblood of your car. Without things like motor oil, brake fluid, coolant, and more, your ride would wind up a pile of smoke and hopeless gears. But, shopping for and knowing which fluids are the right ones for your ride can get confusing and tricky. Plus, if you get it wrong, the damage could be pretty substantial if you don’t have an auto service tech on standby. Luckily, with your Clermont car owner’s manual, there’s no guesswork involved! This handy booklet includes info on the fluids your car needs, how much it needs, and when you should replace it.

Auto Service Schedule

Depending on which Clermont Toyota car you’ve chosen and how you drive it, your auto service regimen will look a lot different than others on the road. If it stresses you out or you have no idea which part of your ride needs to be services next, your car owner’s manual has the answers. It actually includes an ideal schedule of when you should replace certain components. The list even includes items like belts, hoses, and brakes and how many miles each part lasts for, respectively.

Luckily, for the cheapskates and DIYers out there, your Clermont car owner’s manual is the perfect tool.
