Owning a car has always been a distinct symbol of American independence. The reality of it, is that it is also an expensive one. Owning and operating a vehicle in an urban area will cost drivers $6,758 to $11,239 in 2011 according to AAA. Performing regular scheduled maintenance, such as oil changes, on your vehicle can help keep repair costs down. The following is a summary of the list published by the Washington Post of Do’s and Don’ts of car maintenance.
1. Follow the maintenance schedule in your vehicles owner manual.
2. If your vehicle calls for Synthetic, use the best fully synthetic oil you can find. Check out our coupon page for $15 off a full synthetic Signature Service Oil Change.
3. Check your tire pressure. You’ll get slightly better gas mileage, better handling and longer tire life. This service is included with any Signature Service Oil Change.
4. Tighten your gas cap. Really, gas evaporates.
