You’ve probably always written New Year’s Resolutions from your point of view, but what about your car? If your car could talk, what would it tell you it needed this year? Here are some ideas!
Keep Me Clean
While we know it’s probably not a car that writes those “Wash me!” messages on the back windows of other vehicles, don’t they ever give you a little twinge of guilt? If there’s that much grime on the windows, how can you possibly see well enough to drive? And if you can’t see well enough to drive, wouldn’t that cause your car some anxiety? We think so! So keep your car clean, and your paint will last longer. Also, you’ll be safer, too.
Organize the Paper
Besides the registration, insurance, and all the manuals, people tend to keep a lot of paperwork in their cars. Now we’re not saying you have to throw away all those coupons you’re stashing in your glovebox, but how about putting them inside a little folder? And maybe even labeling that folder “coupons.” And making sure that your paperwork is in order should you ever need it.
Get an Emergency Kit
If you didn’t get an emergency kit for Christmas, now might be a perfect time to get one for your car. The good news is, you don’t have to get everything all at once (although it’s more convenient). You could buy a couple of flares, then the following month, pick up jumper cables. You can get most everything you need online, and maybe add to it as you see fit. Don’t forget something to keep you warm, too.
Give me Preventive Maintenance
We’re big on preventive maintenance, so we have to emphasize this one. Yes, preventive maintenance will make your car run better and be happier. It will also keep you and your family safer. This sounds like an easy one to us. Making sure those fluids are always topped off by bringing your vehicle into us before there’s an emergency.
New Tires, Please!
Are your tires bald? If your tires are not gripping the road the way they should, we know a great place for you to visit! The streets around Littleton can be slippery enough even if you have brand new tires. Don’t put your car and family at risk with bald tires.
