If 2018 is anything like 2017, we all might just barely survive — but the same does not need to be said for your trusty used car. Here are a few simple New Year’s resolutions for used car owners so you can make the most out of your pre-owned vehicle.
Stop putting off your oil changes
Used cars last much longer nowadays than they did in the past, but that doesn’t mean they don’t require a lot of TLC. Be on top of your regular oil changes — at least every 5,000 miles — to keep your vehicle in its prime condition.
Pay attention to your wheels
For such an essential part of any car, wheels and tires are often overlooked. This can be more than just bad for your cars’ longevity; it can be dangerous. Make sure you’re checking your tire pressure, tread, and the overall health of your tires on a monthly basis. All it takes is a two-minute check and you’re on your way.
Keep your car clean
Being a used car doesn’t have to mean looking like a used car. Vacuum your carpets. Remove trash immediately. Clean off salt stains promptly. Don’t let your trunk get out of control. These easy cleaning steps will go a long way in making your used car feel shiny and new every time you get behind the wheel.
