KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- When we purchase a car, we are duly reminded of the importance of servicing the vehicle after completing the first 1,000 kilometres. The second service is due after completing the next 5,000km, following which the car has to be serviced every 10,000km.

This is to ensure the car is well maintained and can be driven problem-free.
