New Year’s Resolutions for Your Vehicle

For many people, the new year is a chance to wipe the slate clean and start fresh. Whether you’re determined to focus on your health and well-being, pursue a new career, or learn an interesting skill, it’s a great time to embrace change and look forward to the year ahead. One way to get the ball rolling—or rather, the wheel rolling—is to give your vehicle the care and attention it needs. With tasks that range from practical to indulgent, this list of vehicle resolutions will be sure to keep you on track.

 

Stay up to date on fluids.

Start the year off right by making sure your car is loaded with all the right fluids. This includes transmission and brake fluid, engine oil, coolant, and power steering fluid. Not only is this resolution a matter of safety, but staying up to date with your fluids can also make your car run smoother and extend its life expectancy.

 

Get regular oil changes.

Getting an oil change every 3,000-5,000 miles may seem frequent, but it helps maintain and improve the performance of your vehicle. In order for the intricate machinery in your vehicle to work properly, it needs fresh oil to prevent varnish and carbon build-up, and to pull heat away from the engine. An overheated engine is not only inconvenient, it’s dangerous.

 

Start a maintenance log.

We get it—life gets busy and there are countless things to remember. A vehicle maintenance log can help relieve the mental strain. Your log can include oil changes, fluid updates, tire rotations, light and signal checks, and repairs.

 

Keep it clean.

Resolve to keep your vehicle clean this year by committing to car washes. A clean car can improve your mood and make you excited to drive. Keeping the inside of your car clean is just as important. A clean interior cuts down on allergens, makes you feel good about your vehicle, and helps you stay focused on driving—not the mess.

 

Save for that splurge item.

Maybe you’ve been talking about it for months. Perhaps it’s saved in your online shopping cart but you haven’t taken the plunge and ordered it. This year, commit to setting aside money for this item—even if it’s just a little at a time. Is it a new stereo? Seat covers? Navigation system? Whatever it is, this is the year to make it happen!

 

Visit Rolf’s Import Auto.

The best New Year’s vehicle resolution is to visit Rolf’s Import Auto for service, maintenance or a tune-up. This will ensure all other resolutions can happen, and keep you safely cruising all year long. Check out our full list of services here!
