New year - new suggestions for making your car last

It’s a new year! Cecil's Automotive in Collierville would like to start you off with some tips on making your car last this year, and for many more to come.

Regular maintenance

Keep your car maintained. Stay up to date on oil, filter, and fluid changes. Wash it regularly to prevent rust and buildup. Have your tires, belts, alignment, bearings, belt pulleys, and other commonly worn items checked regularly to avoid problems on the road.

Fix current issues

The only thing more important than regular maintenance is getting problems corrected when they arise. One broken part will inevitably lead to other broken parts, usually causing more serious complications. If something on your car isn’t working the way it should, don’t let it escalate; get it fixed before a small problem becomes a bigger one.

Go easy

Go easy on your car. It’s a reliable and finely tuned machine, but pushing it to its limits constantly causes excessive wear. Don’t mash the throttle all the time, it’s hard on the engine and transmission. Brake in a slow and smooth fashion, to reduce wear on brake pads and stress on moving components. If you avoid driving hard, your car will have a far longer, healthier life.

This year, set a goal to take care of your vehicle. Come see us at Cecil's Automotive for all your maintenance and repair needs - our expert technicians are here to solve problems, and prevent them from happening in the first place.
