Read Your Owner’s Manual

When you’ve been driving for years, it’s easy to assume you know everything there is to know about cars. However, every vehicle is different. Your vehicle may have different warning signs or alerts than you are used to seeing. Your manual will also tell you the recommended maintenance schedule for your car. It will even let you know the best engine oil to use, windshield wipers, and more.

Set a Strict Maintenance Schedule – and Follow It

We know it isn’t always easy to take time out of your day to have routine maintenance completed. However, it’s such a crucial part of caring for your vehicle. When you put off maintenance, you are causing undue wear and tear on your vehicle. It’s so important that you not only complete routine maintenance, but that you make sure it’s completed on time.

Keep Your Vehicle Protected

We know it’s not always possible, but when you can, store your vehicle in the garage. The outside elements can truly wreak havoc on your vehicle. Naturally, we know the hazards of hail and other inclement weather. However, even excessive sun can affect your vehicle. Over time, it can fade or even crack your exterior.
