Are you a proud bakkie owner who does your best to keep it in tip-top condition? Continue reading if you want to avoid common bakkie maintenance mistakes.

It is extremely important to ensure that you are changing your bakkie’s oil on a regular basis. Oil is essential for a healthy engine but you also need to know the correct recommended oil type for your bakkie.

If you see warning lights flashing on your dashboard, do not ignore them! This warning light system is specifically designed to alert you if there is an issue with your car that needs attention. If these warning lights do not go off, take your bakkie to a mechanic to rule out a more serious issue.

Avoid overloading your bakkie. Although it is a workhorse and it is made to carry large loads, there is still a limit on how much weight it can handle. Overloading you bakkie can lead to damaged suspension over time, as well as can harm your brakes, and other components. Ensure that you stick to the recommended load limits and that you evenly distribute the weight.

Next is tyres. Make sure you’re using the right type and size of tire for your bakkie and that you keep them maintained properly. You need to regularly check our tire pressure.

Routine maintenance is key. Your bakkie needs regular brake inspections, fluid checks, and tire rotations to keep it running smoothly. You should not skip these services as that can lead to larger issues later on. Follow the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule and keep track of all services performed.

By avoiding these common maintenance mistakes, you’ll be able to save money on repairs, avoid downtime, and increase your bakkie’s resale value. Take care of your bakkie and it’ll take care of you!
