Male Teenage Driver Looking Out Of Car Window

When it comes to saving money, nothing beats a quality used car from The Auto Connection. Save even more cash by keeping your ride in top shape with these four simple changes.

  1. Give Rain the Slip

Products like RainX can help reduce the wear on your windshield wipers, extending their life expectancy. In most light rain situations, products like RainX make your wipers obsolete.

  1. Skip the Hose Wash

The University of Texas recently conducted a study that found at-home car washes can leave scratches “as deep as a tenth of the paint’s total thickness.” Yikes. Not to mention washing your ride at home uses 5-20x more water than a professional car wash.

  1. Take Your Seat Down a Notch

This may seem strange until you realize that drivers who sit higher feel like they’re driving slower. Lowering the seat will put you closer to the road, creating a greater sensation of speed without the risks of driving faster. Zoom zoom.

  1. Give Your Engine a Little R&R

When you stop at a traffic light, shift to neutral. This makes life a tad easier for your engine by reducing the amount of heat carried by the cooling system. It can also give you a slight bump in your gas mileage.
