Resolutions for the New Year That Every Car Owner Should Have
It is nearly the New Year, and with the New Year come those dreaded New Year’s resolutions. Instead of making the same old New Year’s resolutions about weight loss or savings, why not make some resolutions about your car this year? Here are a few resolutions you should make every year as a car owner.
Resolutions for Your Car
Perhaps the most important resolution you need to make for your car is to never neglect your car maintenance. It is easy to shove maintenance in the back of your mind, but it will cost you more money in the long run to repair damage that could have been spotted and fixed before it became a problem. If you set calendar reminders for maintenance, you will thank yourself in the long run.
Next, there are some forms of car maintenance you can do yourself to save money if you are watching your budget. You can teach yourself basic maintenance such as oil and oil filter changes, as well as air filter changes. If you can do some of the maintenance yourself, you can save some serious cash.
You will want to keep this next resolution for the safety of your car, as well as your family. Pledge right now to not drive with distractions. If you need to hide your phone, this is the time to do it. Also, along with distracted drivers, you will need to make sure that you are courteous to drivers on the road. This will go a long way to save you from road rage, which can be very dangerous.
Pledge to keep your can clean, on the outside and the inside, which will help you keep maintenance costs down. If you realize that there is no way to get your car clean and non junky looking, perhaps it’s time to gift yourself a new car for the New Year.
