Start the New Year Right with Resolutions for Car Owners

Resolutions for Car Owners

While it’s a popular practice to forge new goals to pursue in the new year, it’s uncommon to set ambitions for your auto and your driving habits. However, we think that every auto owner could benefit from these types of changes, to increase their driving pleasure and prolong the life of their vehicle. Here are some auto-related New Year’s resolutions to get you started.

  1. Plan ahead: Regularly maintaining your car is the best thing you can do to help prevent serious problems with the engine and parts. Make a habit of keeping up with oil changes, checking your tire pressure, and reading your owner’s manual, to help your vehicle stay in peak condition.
  2. Stop idling around: Leaving your car’s engine on, while it is idling, can harm your car. It burns through gas unnecessarily and increases overall carbon dioxide emissions. In addition, you should avoid warming your car for long periods of time.
  3. Be fuel-efficient: Save money at the pump by adopting fuel-efficient driving habits like using cruise control and adhering to the speed limit.

Incorporate some of these healthy maintenance and driving habits to enjoy the safest year yet. Happy New Year from all of us here at Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet!
