Improve The Life Of Your Car
Get The Most Out Of Your Vehicle
Whether you drive a brand new Ferrari or a 20 year old ‘banger’, we all want to get the most out of our car. To help prolong the life of your vehicle we take a look at some useful tips that you can use to improve the life of your car.
Check The Oil
One of the most common recommendations for any car maintenance is regularly checking your oil levels as it is essential to the operation of your engine. Checking your oil is easy, simply remove the dipstick, wipe it with a cloth, reinsert it and pull it out again. If you need to get an oil change you should take a look at your car manual to identify how often it needs to be changed.
Change The Air Filter
Your air filter can often be forgotten about as an item for regular maintenance, but this is an important piece to consider when thinking about the optimization of your vehicle. Changing the air filter on a regular basis will improve your mileage, engine performance and prolong the life of your car.
Maintain Fluid Levels
Oil is not the only important fluid that helps your car run smoothly. Brake fluid and coolant need to have their levels maintained in order to optimize your cars performance. We recommend checking your fluid levels every couple of weeks to protect your car from any potential leaks.
Keep It Clean
This is one of the more cost effective and straightforward tips provided. Keeping both the interior and the exterior of your car clean will prevent any future paint jobs, unnecessary stains or damage to your car seat fabric.
Our last tip is to monitor your driving behaviour and always stay safe behind the wheel. This tip is also majorly important from a personal point of view. Driving safely will not only reduce the likelihood of an accident occurring, but it may also prolong the life of your car. This is an easy way to add years to your car’s life, as you are more likely to avoid harsh breaking, sharp turning or over acceleration.
We hope these tips help, as it can be frustrating spending a fortune on car repairs or even a brand new car as a result of an issue with your vehicle that could've been avoided. Finally, we recommend having your vehicle protected with a car insurance policy that suits you. We compare over 14 insurers to help find the right policy for you.
