New Year Resolutions for your Car

Happy New Year! Here are 5 new year resolutions for the year ahead to trim your car-related expenses in 2018.


Posted on Jan 1, 2018 by Rescue


1. Regularly monitor oil levels and change accordingly

This is the easiest preventative measure you can take to safeguard your vehicle. Regularly changing your oil is important for the longevity of your engine. It is especially critical if you own an older vehicle, so do it regularly. Consult your vehicle’s instruction manual to know how often you should be changing your oil.

2. Care for your tyres

Your tyres play a big role in ensuring optimal fuel efficiency and vehicle handling. Check your tyre pressure regularly. Check the label inside your driver’s side door for recommended pressure levels. Get your tyres rotated to prevent them from wearing out unevenly. Don’t forget to inspect your spare tyre too!

3. Drive better, drive smarter

End your bad driving habits this year. If you are hard on your brakes, your brakes will wear out much quicker. Aim to accelerate and brake gently. Lighten the load on your car by getting rid of unnecessary loads in your trunk. Let your car warm up properly on cold days. Smart driving can have a positive effect on your overall fuel spend besides protecting your engine.

4. Schedule regular checks

Don’t put off periodical maintenance or necessary repair work. Doing so can lead to larger problems and huge repair bills in the end. Fix what’s wrong immediately and your car will last a lot longer.

5. Pick up a Roadside Assistance plan

Unfortunately, even after following these steps, you may still face sudden breakdowns due to factors beyond your control. A Roadside Assistance plan will help you save on unforeseen costs by ensuring you have free 24/7 breakdown assistance and professional towing services all year, instead of being fleeced by third-rate roadside garages and towing operators at a difficult time.
