Choosing to take better care of your car in the New Year is a great resolution. Not only will it save you money over the vehicle’s lifespan, but your vehicle will run better too. Here are some tips for New Year car care from us here at Simi Valley Buick GMC.
Keep it Clean
You don’t have to have your car professionally detailed to keep it clean. Taking simple steps, such as taking the trash out with you when you get to your destination, can help reduce clutter. If something spills, attend to it right away instead of waiting for it to dry. Whether you head to a car wash or clean your car by hand, make sure to do so at least once every few weeks!
Inflate Your Tires
Proper tire pressure can help extend the life of your tires, increase fuel economy, and make your daily commute safer. Check the sticker inside the driver-side door to see what the optimal pressure for your tires is. Make sure to check your tire pressure at least once a week, then add or release air as needed.
It’s easy to forget to schedule routine maintenance, but staying consistent can help save money over time. Simply scheduling oil changes and tire rotations, something every dealership service department is familiar with, can extend the lifespan of your vehicle and help prevent problems down the road.
