For the Car Passionate folks, it can get a little bit too tempting as there are plenty of new cars being introduced. But if you take good care of your existing car then you would be able to easily increase its life and this would also reduce your craving for a new car. After all, when your car starts giving too many problems you might end up feeling more inclined towards buying a new one. Also when you work on making your car last long you also end up increasing its resale value.
Do not skip the maintenance and service routines
Though these are expensive they can help prevent major expenses that might occur due to poor maintenance. A car service would help you identify potential problems right when they are just in their early stage. This would keep the cost of repairs lower than the situation when the problem gets a bit more severe.
Regular oil change
Regularly checking and changing the oils like engine oil, brake oil etc., can increase the life of the internal components a great deal. Oil quality determines the efficiency of the engine and the car on the whole.
Check the filters
Blocked filters might not only increase the fuel consumption but also pose a serious hazard in some cases. Regular cleaning of the air filters can be good for the driver and the car as well.
Get the tires checked
The inflation levels of the tires, as well as the life of the tire, the friction they offer, should all be periodically monitored. This is again for the safety as well as for the long life of the car.
Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning the interior and exterior of the car on a regular basis can also go a long way in extending the car’s life.
