Do you ever have mixed feelings about New Year’s resolutions, too? It’s a natural time to make plans to do better and make changes to important behaviors like our eating and spending habits. But we all know it’s never as easy as it seems. Next year, our family of Orlando car dealerships challenges you to come up with and follow through on those goals — and to add routine auto service in Orlando to the list. Yes, that’s right: car maintenance! While seemingly unimportant, taking better care of your car will help you save more money in 2017 and beyond.
But where to start? Here are a few pointers:
Follow through on routine auto service in 2017!
As you get back into the swing of how things should be (i.e. prepping meals, working out in the afternoons, etc.), our Orlando Toyota auto service team suggests you open up your calendar, pick ideal dates, and jot down possible routine service appointments for all of 2017. Writing things down, setting reminders, and making the appointment will keep you accountable and push you to follow through. Remember, taking care of the one who got you from point A to point B in 2016 will help make the coming year a success.
When was the last time you got the conditions of your tires professionally looked at? Make now the time! Every 5,000 miles, you should be getting a tire rotation and inflation, a cheap oil change in Orlando, and a thorough inspection of other car parts and systems, like:
- Car Battery: Make sure it’s in proper working order so you don’t get stranded; not a great way to start off the new year!
- Brake System: This is arguably the most important vehicle system when it comes to the safety of you and your fellow passengers. Keep it in tip-top shape for a safe 2017!
- Car Fluids: Often overlooked, liquids such as your windshield wiper, power steering, and brake fluids aid in the proper function of other key parts in your vehicle. Don’t forget them!
Another often overlooked system in Orlando car maintenance is getting your lighting system inspected. Your exterior lights give your car the ability to communicate with other vehicles! If yours are looking cloudy, dull, or dim, head over to one of our Orlando dealerships for headlight restoration or repair. We’ll get them shining like new in time for you to roll into 2017 like you own it!
Consistently keeping up with your car’s maintenance will help keep your car running smoothly, providing you a more comfortable, enjoyable drive. But more importantly, it will keep more serious problems and avoidable, costly future repairs at bay! Not to mention it will prolong the life of old Bessy.
