How to get More Life out of Your Used Vehicle

How to get More Life out of Your Used Vehicle

Unless you’ve got a lot of time and money on your hands, and you’re an expert at restoring and preserving vehicles, your car won’t last forever. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t get more longevity out of your vehicle and drive it for many years to come. If you pay attention to some simple maintenance tips, you can drive a reliable vehicle much longer than you may think.

 

Oil Changes

 

It may be easy to overlook this essential service, but it’s not a good idea to put it off. Your local dealership can easily perform this job for you in a matter of minutes. An oil change will remove dirt and sludge from the engine and will help it run more efficiently. Oil changes will also improve your gas mileage as well.

 

Change the Filters

 

This is something you should do in connection with changing the oil. When the dealership mechanic takes care of your oil, he or she will likely pull the air filter. You should replace it at every other oil change. Don’t forget about the fuel filter, either. These are relatively simple and inexpensive tasks that can improve the way your car runs.

 

Transmission Check

 

Used cars can spend time at the dealership repair shop, but you can prolong some of the most costly repairs with diligence and regular maintenance. If you don’t want to fork out a few thousand dollars fixing the transmission, have it checked every 50,000 by a skilled mechanic at your local dealership.

 

Stay on Schedule

 

There are many services you should pay attention to. If you get behind on maintenance and upkeep, your car will suffer. Read your owner’s manual and know what services are due for a checkup.

 

When you take used cars to the dealership for regular maintenance, your car will be in better shape. It’s important to take ownership and to get serious about these matters.
