Getting to know your vehicle is by far the best thing you can do regarding its maintenance. Find out how it works, how it feels and how it behaves under specific driving circumstances. The more you know about it, the easier it is to keep it in a good shape. However, some problems do not necessarily depend on you. Unless you know how to handle minor things, going to an expert mechanic is the best thing you can do. Guessing the cause is less likely to help you out.
