How to Extend the Life of Your Car in Vallejo, CA

Whether you’re driving a brand-new car or trying to keep an older model running smoothly, your ride will last longer when you treat it well. Here are some tips for protecting and pampering your vehicle so you can drive it for more years and more miles.

Wash it regularly

As you drive your vehicle around the Bay Area, its exterior will gradually accumulate dust, smashed bugs, bits of debris, and even salt from the ocean air. Regular washing and waxing will keep all this dirty stuff from latching onto the exterior paint and causing it to fade, crack, or chip. It will also help to prevent corrosion. The result? A vehicle that maintains its great looks for all the years you choose to own it.

Keep up with scheduled maintenance

Keeping up with regular maintenance is one of the best ways to help your vehicle last longer. Our service department here at Avery Greene Honda in Vallejo can help! Simply follow the schedule in your owner’s manual for oil changes, tire rotations, filter replacements, and other recommended maintenance, bringing your vehicle in for a service appointment when it’s time to take care of it. This will reduce wear and tear on your engine, your tires, and other vital parts of your vehicle.

Watch tire pressure and fluid levels

When oil and other fluids run too low, this can put your vehicle at risk for damage — so make sure you check them all on a regular basis and top them off (or replace them) as needed. The same holds true for your tires. If you drive on them when they’re underinflated or overinflated, tires will wear out sooner. Poorly pressurized tires can also hurt your vehicle’s efficiency and safe performance, so remember to check them regularly.

Avoid aggressive driving

Habitually stomping on the gas subjects your engine to excessive wear and tear and could eventually reduce its overall lifespan. Frequent hard braking can be damaging as well. Whenever possible, strive for gentler acceleration and braking — your vehicle will thank you by lasting longer and running more effectively.
