o Check the car's brakes and tires.

o Check the battery and connecting wires, and ensure they are free of calcifications.

2- The necessary inspection after traveling a distance of 30,000 kilometers:

o Check the car's cooling device, the fluid level inside it, and empty it of air if necessary.

• What is the expected lifespan of car parts?

The expected lifespan of the car parts remains an estimate, as the expected lifespan of the parts varies depending on the extent of commitment to periodic service, and the method of use, and the expected lifespan is not measured by time, as much as it is measured by the kilometers used.
