Cars are not very cheap and not all people are lucky enough to purchase one. Unfortunately, some car owners don’t know how to keep their costly possession in tip-top shape.
Even an older car can be reliable if it’s been well-maintained and treated right. Here are 12 tips on how to keep your vehicle running for a long time.
1. Drive carefully
Your driving habits have a direct effect on the lifespan of your car. As a car owner, it is your responsibility to drive carefully and at the correct speeds.
2. Find a gas station you trust and stick to it.
3. Change oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles
4. Follow maintenance schedule
5. Lighten up your keychain
We’re all guilty of putting multiple keys in one keychain. What we don’t realize is that this can wear out the tumblers inside the ignition, which could lead to ignition switch failure.
6. Rotate tires to prevent uneven tread wear
7. Check your fluids at least once a month
8. Choose a good car insurer
Unfortunately, accidents do happen no matter how careful you are. So when that happens, make sure that your car will be repaired to the best possible standard by finding an insurer that will pay for parts from the original manufacturer and guarantee the repairs it authorizes.
9. Flush the radiator every two years
This can extending the life of the engine and radiator.
10. Wash and wax regularly
11. Don’t forget to clean the inside as well
12. Inspect your tires and wheels
Make sure that your tires are inflated to the pressure specified in your vehicle’s owner manual. Also, make sure that your wheels are functioning well. Unbalanced wheels and uneven tire wear can cause excess stress on the suspension components.
