New Year's Resolutions For Your Car

It's that time of the year again; a new year means a reset button. You've probably thought about ways to improve yourself this year with New Year's Resolutions, but why limit them for just yourself? You can kick off 2022 with some goals to enhance your car!

It may seem silly, but a safer, more efficient car means confidence and savings for YOU. Now is the perfect time to commit to breaking bad vehiclehabits! Here are some of our top suggestions:

Clean Up!

While you're resetting with cleaning and organizing your life, try removing any junk and clutter you may have in your car. Not only will it lift a weight off your shoulders (physically and mentally), but it could help you improve your gas mileage. If you tend to make a mess in your car, try adding a trash bag and other organizational items to keep this goal consistent throughout the year.

Be Proactive with Maintenance

The best way to keep your car in tip-top shape and avoid costly problems is to stay on top of routine maintenance. From your oil changes to tire rotations, doing them can make your car last longer without potential issues. If you notice something unusual, like a weird noise or strange smell, vow not to put off an inspection to check it out. No one wants to be surprised with a hefty bill, but if you take your vehicle to Honest Wrenches early, the expense will likely not be destructive to your wallet.

Be a Better and Safer Driver

How you operate your vehicle has a significant impact on how long your car will last. Rash accelerations and speeding burns excessive gas. Additionally, aggressive stopping and slamming on your brakes causes materials to wear down faster than it does when braking slowly. Let's make it a resolution in 2022 to be a safer and cautious driver by ditching these horrible habits.
