At Discount Motor City, used cars, Surrey, we are always looking for ways to help you. We not only want you to get the best buy sales from a car dealership, Surrey, we also want to help you keep your used car in the best of working condition.
Below, are 5 tips you can follow to make your car last longer. These, most of us already know, but it never hurts for a refresher about some of the simpler things that we can all do.
That sounds pretty basic but washing and waxing the outside of your car and cleaning the inside will go a long way towards keeping your car looking “like new.”
But, it is more than just about aesthetics. With time, dirt and whatever is on your vehicle can eat through the clear coat covering, eventually oxidizing the paint, leading to rust. Once started, rust can quickly spread and getting into the frame and chassis, it will make your car unsafe to drive.
Cleaning the inside with a regular vacuum will help keep the upholstery and rugs in good condition. Nothing is worse than grinding the dirt into the seat fabric or rugs.
Checking the fluid levels after the windshield washer fluid runs dry, which I am sometimes guilty of, does not really cut it. We should all check the fluid levels at least once per month and it never hurts to give the rubber components a squeeze. Look for cracks or hardening of the of the rubber, all which can be signs of a rubber part setting up to break.
The goal; If you look after your engine fluid levels and change your oil regularly, your used car will probably last a lot longer no matter what year, make or model you have.
There are three things that are important with tires:
Tire pressure is important as your tires will last longer, and with today’s gas prices, you will ensure optimum mileage. A good tire pressure gauge is not expensive and we highly recommend you keep one handy in your used car.
Tire Rotation is important to ensure even wear. Just the simple act of rotating your tires every six months can save you from having to purchase new tires that much sooner.
Tire Alignment is important to your steering and tire wear. If you notice a shake in your steering wheel, it could mean your tires are out of alignment. This is usually the result of hitting something hard with your tires such as a pothole or curb. Tires out of align will cause early tire wear and may affect your steering.
Engines, no matter what anyone may say, like a little TLC. Treat your engine load with kindness, by not overloading your vehicle or pushing for the power. Just think of the strain on a small 4-Cylinder engine if you try to pull a heavy loaded trailer. Know your engine limit and stay within it and your engine will give a long life.
Cars are no different than our bodies. We should all have regular checkups and so should your used car. At Discount Motor City, used car dealership, Surrey, we recommend a regular maintenance schedule as outlined in your vehicle manual. The manufacturers are not trying to take your money with their recommended schedule of maintenance; they are suggesting a schedule that can ultimately save you money.
