Well, regularly is definitely what most people would aim for, but how regular is regularly! In reality, it really depends on your car model, the make of your car, its age, and its condition. These things matter since they give an indication of how much you’ve used your car. For example, it might be time to change your tyres without you knowing, or worse, find that the engine suddenly failed and it’s not fun to be stranded on the side of the road.
As a general rule, most car manufacturers and mechanics would give you specific timeframe and distant intervals before your next service is due. Most would advise to service your car every 6 months or 5,000KM (or whichever comes first) however, this is just for an average car.
