How would one say 'car servicing' in Chinese

(As in, "regular car servicing can extend the life of your vehicle")

汽车服务does not convey the meaning

Would 检查be better? Or is it too narrow? Because 'servicing' would mean more than just inspection, it would include overall maintainance, tightening of screws, a good wash, the works!!

保养 is perfect. Describes it exactly. Thanks to all of you who took the trouble to reply.

Oh, sorry felix, just saw your post.
Well, context is instructions to a new car owner "You must get your car serviced regularly"

Identical in meaning, someone going to a car service centre and saying "I want to get my car serviced" or "I want to give my car for servicing". Or something to that effect!
