5 New Year’s Resolutions for The Health of Your Car

Keep It Clean

No more fast food containers on the floor or unnecessary items stored in the trunk. 2019 is the year of the clean car. Start the year off strong with a detailing appointment at your local dealership or go the DIY route at home. Then, keep up the clean appearance with a bi-weekly cleaning and vacuuming session.

Give Your Tires TLC

Your tires don’t get the credit they deserve. In 2019, give them the TLX they deserve by maintaining their tire pressure for optimal performance. We like to check our tire pressure each time we stop for gas, especially in winter when temperatures can fluctuate.

Schedule Routine Maintenance

No more skipping routine maintenance. The best way to ensure that your car provides reliable transportation is to keep up with routine maintenance like oil changes or mileage services. Your owner’s manual should list all of the maintenance intervals you need to know.

Save On Gas

Make a conscious effort to save on gas by driving with some fuel-efficient principles in mind. The first fuel-chugging habit to break? Stomping on the gas and brake pedals to aggressively. Accelerating and braking slowly can have a significant impact on fuel savings.

Join a Carpool

In addition to saving on gas with your driving habits, consider joining a carpool. It’s good for the environment and your social life.
