Machines, just like humans, need to be checked periodically, both to ensure that time doesn't wear them out excessively and because it's good to always maintain a certain level of safety. In the car you don't mess around: maintenance is essential!

In this article we have collected a series of photos depicting unlikely situations, faced with which most mechanics would be tearing their hair out. How can you reduce your car to this?

After a while, the cockpit becomes a receptacle for garbage! Of course, some, such as the owner of this car in the picture, seem to go beyond the limits of decency!
