A new car is always a prized asset!
As an employee at one of the biggest car showrooms in the country, I know how fussy people are in maintaining the new car in the first two or three years. Somehow, after a lapse of such a period, they become lackadaisical either because the novelty wears off or they are already thinking about a newer car!!
But in case you are thinking of carrying on your car for a long run, we recommend that from day one up to even after the novelty and the excitement dies down, you must take good care of your automobile. This way it will not only carry you in the good stead but will also not cost you wads of currencies when you have to distress service it. And what’s more, you will fetch a great price for it in case you are going to sell it at the used car mart!

- Follow maintenance schedule:
Preventive maintenance is the best thing to do. If you do this there will actually be no need for your car to go to the garage. It will give you pointers as to when is the ideal time to change oil or to check the pressure and balance in the tires etc.
A thorough inspection of the car’s interior and exterior is a sine quo non in case you want your new car to look ravishing new until the day you decide to separate it from you!
- Changing the air filter regularly:
This is yet another advice I give to every new car owner. Changing the air filter which is placed in the bonnet ensures that your air conditioning works great inside the car and that you do not inhale stale air.
