Car Maintenance Tips For An Everlasting Ride

Ensuring The Longevity Of Your Ride

When you purchase a car, you are depending on this mode of transportation to get you from Point A to Point B without any problems. However, if you fail to give your ride the tender love and care it requires to live a long life, you may come across a magnitude of problems down the road. Gathered are some important car maintenance tips so that you can confidently depend on your car year after year:

  • It is imperative that you keep your tires in shape for both the longevity of your car, yourself, and others on the road. Improperly maintained tires account for a large majority of tow-away collisions, emphasizing the importance of keeping your tires in shape for the sake of safety. You should check your air pressure often, rotate your tires every 7,000 miles approximately, and check the alignment every time you rotate them.
  • Make sure to check your oil and fluids regularly to ensure that they are at proper levels. A safe rule of thumb goes to check your fluids each time you change your oil. Fluids to check include your automatic transmission, wiper, power-steering, and brake fluids.
  • While you may be inclined to assume that your windshield wipers will last forever, they need some attention too. It is smart to check your windshield wipers before fall arrives each year so that you can replace them before the rainy season ahead if necessary.
  • Did you know that a dirty air filter can hinder the performance of your car? To combat this issue, simply pull out your filter, hold it to a strong light, and replace if you cannot see through the filter.
  • Most importantly, you must follow your vehicle manual’s recommendation on service schedules. Newer cars typically inform you when you are due for a service, but you must stay up to date on these requirements with older models.
