Most cars need a tune-up every two years or every 30,000 miles, whichever comes first. You may be tempted to skip your tune-up if your car seems to be running fine, but it’s an indispensible step in car maintenance. During a tune-up, your mechanic has the opportunity to inspect all the systems of your car and catch small mechanical problems before they cause serious damage.
