New Year’s Resolutions for Your Car

It’s the time of year for resolutions. While you’re setting your goals for 2019, don’t forget about that one companion who will always be with you along the way—your car. These New Year’s resolutions for your car will help you get a great start to 2019.

Be Fuel Efficient

Are you getting the most out of every tank of gas? There are ways you can optimize your fuel by changing the way your drive. One key is to avoid any degree of aggressive driving, including excessive braking and quick acceleration. All of this uses more fuel than necessary. Another way to cut down on fuel usage is to clean out your car, as the more weight you carry the more gas your vehicle uses.

Don’t Idle

Idling is bad for everyone and everything involved. If you’re going to be stopped for longer than 30 seconds, turn off the engine.

Keep Your Car in Shape

One of your personal resolutions might be to get or stay in shape, but this resolution can apply to your car as well! Make it your 2019 goal to stay on top of car maintenance. Get regular oil changes and check ups, check the tire pressure and oil levels regularly, and keep the exterior and interior of your car clean.
