2018 is already in full swing, but there’s still time to set yourself a goal for the New Year. We here at Route 44 Hyundai have a few recommended New Year’s resolutions for car owners that you should consider.
Keep Up With Maintenance
Making sure your car is in proper working order is a great way to start off the New Year. Keeping up with simple maintenance items, like routine oil changes and tire rotations, can significantly reduce the amount of problems you might experience the in future. On top of that, keeping up with maintenance will extend the life of your vehicle and ensure it continues to earn excellent fuel economy.
Letting your car idle in the driveway wastes fuel and is harmful to the environment. While most people let their car idle to warm it up, that isn’t the best way to warm your vehicle. The best way to warm up your car is to drive it at a moderate speed for a few minutes.
Maximizing your vehicle’s efficiency doesn’t have to be expensive or call for any modifications. All you really have to do, in addition to keeping up with maintenance and avoiding idling, is drive the speed limit and give yourself plenty of time to get to your destination.
