Do people get their vehicles serviced on dates recommended in the manufacturers manual?When we buy a new vehicle - be it a two wheeler or a four wheeler, we get a manual in which preventive maintenance / servicing schedule is charted. Do people follow the same meticulously?
I am not talking about initial free servicing, but about the subsequent paid services.
Many people have habit of going on plying their vehicles till they get stranded somewhere on the road and only then take the recourse of visiting a mechanic, often the nearest roadside vendor.
