It’s hard to believe that 2016 is coming to a close and 2017 is right around the corner! Many people make resolutions to live better, healthier lives in the new year. This year as you’re waiting for the ball to drop, why not make some New Year’s Resolutions for your car so you and your vehicle can have an amazing 2017?
Here are some resolutions that we recommend to get you started:
Keep up with regular maintenance
If you were lax about making regular maintenance appointments for your vehicle in 2016, your first resolution should be to call your mechanic! Regular maintenance on your car can save you money in the long run and could keep you from being stranded on the side of the road because your car broke down.
Give up texting and driving
We all know that texting and driving is extremely dangerous, not to mention illegal in most states. Make 2017 the year that you put down your cell phone while driving, you never know how many lives it could save. Read up on distracted driving statistics on the DMV website.
Learn to do basic maintenance yourself
If you are tired of having to make an appointment to see your trusted local mechanic and having to spend so much of your hard-earned paychecks on auto maintenance, why not make a car new year’s resolution to learn how to do it yourself. Start with something small, like learning how to change your own oil or how to change a flat tire. This resolution not only saves you money, but helps you better yourself by learning something new!
Be a courteous driver
We all know how frustrating driving can be, especially when you factor in traffic jams, highway construction, and novice drivers. This car new year’s resolution is about being a more courteous driver. By being more patient with your fellow drivers, you can avoid road rage and potential accidents that happen when you are not paying attention to the road because you are focusing on what other people are doing around you.
Keep your car clean
No one likes driving a messy car. In 2017, resolve to keep your vehicle neat and tidy, both inside and out. This will also help with maintaining your paint job and the interior if you frequent the car wash and throw away any trash that piles up in your car daily.
Check your tires and wheels
Most drivers take their tires and wheels for granted. This car new year’s resolution is a reminder to get in the habit of checking your tire pressure and making sure that everything is road ready could save you from a driving disaster in the future.
