Keep your car going for as long as you possibly can. Here are some tips to increase your car’s lifespan and save you money in the long run.
Maintain Your Car Frequently
A well-maintained car lasts longer than a neglected one. Your car needs routine maintenance and service checks to ensure an optimal lifespan. Check your service plan or service manual to find out when your car is due for a service. You can also have preventative maintenance done on your vehicle by changing your oil level, brake fluid, air filters, and other critical components regularly.
Replace Parts Regularly
Car parts are prone to excessive wear and tear over time. You might not know which parts need replacing without a service check, but other times it may be obvious (like a cracked windscreen). Although you should always leave it to the professionals, certain things like replacing the oil filters and tyres can be done yourself.
Inspect your car regularly to see if any parts need to be replaced. Whether you find a minor repair or major repair, tackle this quickly, as even a minor issue can turn into a serious issue down the line.
Drive With Care And Caution
What is your everyday driving technique? Aggressive driving, like pressing hard on your brakes, can lead to early signs of wear and tear. You can also damage your car by hitting potholes, curbs, or even taking curves too fast. Drive carefully and practice good driving habits to make your car last longer and for the sake of your own safety.
Do Tyre Checks Weekly
Tyres are expensive to replace. Make them last longer by checking them regularly and adjusting your tire pressure when needed. The average lifespan of tyres can differ, but if you avoid punctures and get your tyres checked regularly, you can keep your tyres for up to five years.
