So you just picked up your perfect quality used car from The Auto Connection. What can you do to keep it in its best condition? Here are 4 simple tips to make your car last longer.

  1. Wash and Wax

Keeping the exterior of your car clean isn’t just for looks—you’re clearing away foreign bodies that can eat through the clearcoat and eventually cause rust.

  1. Check Your Tire Pressure

This one may seem obvious, but you’d be surprised by how many drivers neglect this important step. Proper tire pressure helps your tires do their job: hugging the road, deflecting water, as well as many other tasks that keep you safe. The tires themselves will also last longer if you rotate them regularly.

  1. Don’t Abuse Your Engine

Every engine has its own limits. Some are primed for the racetrack, while others are more sensitive. Listen to your engine, let it warm up, and treat it well. That’s a surefire recipe for a long-lasting engine.

  1. Schedule Regular Maintenance

Making sure you take your car in for check-ups helps correct any issues you may have now as well as prevent future issues. Check your car’s recommended maintenance schedule and stick to it.
