Automotive New Year’s Resolutions

Maybe you are diligent about creating your resolutions every year, but what about your car? After all, your car gets you safely to work, school, and shopping, as well taking you on vacations, too! Why not have a few automotive New Year’s resolutions? 

Regular Services

This could be the year that you stay updated on regular services. Why not start the year with that resolution in mind? Instead of waiting until there’s smoke coming out of your engine or you’re waiting for the towing service on the side of the road, think of how much better you’ll feel if you have regular services! 

Preventive Maintenance

Preventive maintenance is a lot like regular service. Having your fluids checked regularly is critical to how your vehicle runs. You may need to top off your oil between regular services, or you can bring your car in, and we can do it for you. Make sure all those hoses are tight, and the belts are replaced when they need to be. And don’t forget about the tires and brakes, either!

Emergency Car Kit

Getting an emergency car kit might require a little more effort, but there’s good news! You don’t have to do it all at once! For instance, you could get flares and put those in the trunk. Then, you could get the next item on the list. Or, if you’d like to get it taken care of all at once, why not buy an emergency car kit online? Even if you’re not the one whose car breaks down, it’ll surely come in handy for a friend or family member. 

Keeping it Clean

Will this be the year that you keep your car washed, and the interior vacuumed regularly? It’s not impossible. Some car washes have a frequent buyer’s club so you can get a discount if you go regularly. Could you do that twice a month? Your car doesn’t have to be a source of embarrassment. Having a clean car is like making your bed every day--it’s a great habit to get into and gives you a sense of momentum that can last all day.
