With advancements in material quality and design, modern vehicles last far longer than they used to, which makes buying a used car more desirable than ever. Maximize your pre-owned vehicle’s lifetime and value by following these maintenance tips for used cars.
Keep to the Service Schedule
The manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule is designed to help your vehicle run at its best for as long as possible. Pay attention to all service recommendations.
Change the Timing Belt on Time
One of the most important milestones for your engine is 100,000 miles. If you want it to last, change the timing belt when you reach this point. Some engine styles can be damaged beyond repair if the belt breaks while in operation.
There are plenty of resources online with helpful how-to instructions on completing many service tasks yourself. Checking the tire pressure, replacing wiper blades, and even interior upholstery care are easy to train yourself on.
Tend to Scratches and Dings
It is common for your car’s exterior to accumulate a few scratches and dents over the years. Seek help from our trained technicians to help ensure a bigger problem doesn’t have a chance to develop.
