The term "car tune up" these days typically refers to a basic maintenance program for the various components of your vehicle. However, it is one of the most misused and misunderstood automotive terms today. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines "tune up" as "a general adjustment to insure operation at peak efficiency." Your owner's manual will probably just refer to the maintenance schedule for the individual components that should be serviced or replaced within a specific period of time or number of miles driven.

Poor road conditions are your wheels' worst enemy. If you drive down poorly maintained roads, drive through pot holes, or even hit a curb, your wheel alignment can be greatly affected. Even the slightest car alignment issue can accelerate uneven tire wear. Have your wheel alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so--your tires and your wallet will thank you later.
