  • Regularly Change Your Oil

Most drivers know that their car needs an oil change about every 3,000 to 6,000 miles.  If you fail to change your car’s oil, then it can start to fester.  This bad oil can cause internal damage to your car’s engine, significantly reducing its lifespan.  If you want to keep your car running for as long as possible. It’s important that you keep track of your car’s oil changes and make sure that you stay on schedule.

  • Drive Cautiously

When you drive aggressively, you put unnecessary strain on your car.  By speeding, slamming on your brakes, and making sharp turns, you accelerate your car’s wear and tear.  Rather than putting your car under such stress, take it easy when you drive.  By driving carefully, you can avoid major mechanical issues down the line.
