Generally speaking, New Year’s Resolutions are about taking care of yourself, but what about your vehicle? Here are some car care New Year’s Resolutions from Gossett Kia that are sure to extend your car’s life on the road.
Learn to detail your car
Running your car through the car wash is great for keeping excessive grime off the exterior of your vehicle, but every once in a while, it’s best to really get in there and do a deep clean. Not only will you feel great behind the wheel of such a clean car, it will protect its resale value, too.
Regularly change your oil
We know it might sound like a chore, but making a habit of checking and changing your oil routinely is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to protect your car’s engine and extend the life of your vehicle. This year, plan out when you’ll change your oil and stick to your schedule.
Stay on top of fluids
Just like you can’t stay healthy without drinking water, your car’s health will deteriorate if you don’t regularly replenish its oil, coolant, brake fluid and clutch fluid. Even if you’re not a gear head, these things are simple and cheap to do on your own.
It’s not hard to keep your car in the best shape possible. This year, resolve to make a habit of these car care tips and enjoy the best driving ever.
