A car is an important personal investment, but owning one, whether it’s a new car or a used car, takes a lot of hard work. It has to be well taken care of to ensure its reliability and prevent breakdowns. Used cars especially need extra attention as they are more difficult and more expensive to maintain than new cars.
Following a regular maintenance routine will help extend the life of your car as well as keep your car’s performance at its peak. It will also save you a lot of money in repairs.
Do not accelerate your engine during start-up as this quickly adds to the wear of the car’s engine. Accelerate slowly when you begin your drive. Shift to neutral at red lights to give the engine some time to rest. Be car considerate and you will be rewarded with longer time between repairs.
