New Year’s Resolutions For Your Car

Brown Motor Works wishes you and yours a very Happy New Year. The holidays have come and gone, so it’s back to the grind. We’ve made several 2018 New Year resolutions to improve our daily routines, even if that means giving up some of our favorite bad habits.

This year, why not take those New Year resolutions a step further? We invite you to include your vehicle in your pursuit of good habits. To help you take better care of your vehicle, here are some ideas for you and your car:

Set service appointments in advance Call Browns Motor Works and schedule your maintenance for the year. Think of it like dental checkups. Most of us go twice a year, and our appointments are scheduled way in advance, so we don’t have to worry about keeping up.

  1. Keep your car cleaner this year. Resolve to keep your car clean on the inside and out, including fluids and filters.
  2. Start a vehicle savings account. Set aside a percentage each month to deposit into a separate account. Having dedicated funds for auto repair will ensure your vehicles regular maintenance is not overlooked, and help to ease the sting of a “not-so-regular” maintenance visit.
  3. Put the phone down and make this New Year a safe one. Without the electronic distraction, this will give you the power of being aware and help keep you from making costly mistakes. Your family will thank you for it.
  4. Go for a long drive with your family. Go ahead you’ve earned it! You have kept up with those maintenance appointments, kept it clean, and now your vehicle has a bank account of its own! We believe your car is ready for a nice road trip, so go and enjoy yourself.
