Everyone loves a new car. The key to new car ownership, however, is not the one you put in the ignition. It’s scheduled maintenance. By taking it to the experts at Tread Quarters
, you can save hundreds, even thousands of dollars by taking care of your car right from the start, and without spending a fortune.
First thing, consult your owner’s manual. It contains the maintenance schedule—all of the oil changes, filter replacements, etc.—that your manufacturer expects you to perform. Keep on schedule, or you risk voiding the warranty. Scheduled maintenance also guards against major repairs, improves performance and handling, and boosts trade-in value.
Keep Safe, Save Money
A well-maintained vehicle is a safe vehicle and one that won’t burn money later on. For example, your brakes and tires require frequent safety inspections. Brakes need periodic adjustments and replacement pads or shoes. Tires need to be rotated so that they wear evenly, last longer, and provide you control on the road. Scheduled maintenance helps you avoid expensive problems and keeps your car running efficiently. Changing your oil and keeping your tires inflated to the correct pressure can also help you get 5% better gas mileage—that’s a yearly savings of $75 yearly, based on $3 gas, 30 mpg, and 15,000 highway miles annually.*
