5 Tips on How to Make Your Car Last Longer

Keep your vehicle moving by following these simple tips!

1.)  Get Your Oil Changed
Make sure you are getting your oil changed regularly according to the owner’s manual of your vehicle.  Some vehicles may only need their oil changed every 60,000, while some need it changed every 3,000.  Click here to learn how you can get oil changes for life.

2.)  Regular Maintenance
One of the most important parts of maintaining your vehicle to ensure it lasts a long time is to do the suggested routine maintenance.  Some of the regular maintenance includes oil changes and new fuel and air filters.  This prevents dirt from building up that could lead to more wear and tear.

3.)  Drive Gentle
Don’t slam on the brakes or on the gas peddle.  This is also a good way to save on fuel!  Also, when it’s cold outside make sure you give it a few minutes to warm up.

4.)  Keep it Clean
After a rough winter, the salt can build up on and underneath your vehicle.  Make sure not only to wash the outside but get underneath as well.

5.)  Check-ups
Get send your vehicle in to get a check up by a technician you can trust.  Getting your vehicle looked at by a professional every now and then can avoid a bigger repair bill later on.  It is important to catch a problem before it gets worse and leads to more problems.  At TGK Automotive we do a courtesy inspection every time you get an oil change.
