Now that 2019 is here, it is time to start thinking about how you want to improve your life. This year, why not focus on resolutions for you and your car? Think about it. Where would you be if you didn’t have your car? Here are four things you can do this year to show appreciation for your trusty vehicle.
- Start a car savings account. No one likes paying for car repairs. However, being prepared can make this more bearable. Create a savings account specifically for car-related expenses. You could even use it as a future down payment on a new car.
- Keep up with maintenance. While many of us might keep up with oil changes, most of our other vehicle maintenance is forgotten. This year, catch up on all of your car’s recommended maintenance, which you can find listed in your owner’s manual.
- Stay focused on the road. If you have a habit of checking your phone while you drive, now is the time to stop. Make a commitment to not look at your phone while on the road. Put it in the glove box so you can’t even see it.
- Clean your car. Have a goal to clean your car inside and out once a month. This will help preserve its shine, especially if you add a new layer of wax, too. It will also prevent the interior from getting too messy.
