Make a high mileage car last longer

Whether it's an old faithful or brand new, there are many ways to keep your car going for longer. With the right care, you can still enjoy your ride for years to come!
Make a high mileage car last longer

Fluids keep your car running smoothly, and help to avoid wear and tear. Have your oil checked and changed regularly, as per your car manual’s instructions. Also keep note of your coolant, transmission fluid, windshield washer fluid, brake fluid, and power steering fluid.

Just as we need medical check-ups, your car sometimes requires a professional to make sure everything is in working order. And, just as you wouldn’t go to any old doctor, make sure you entrust your car to a certified, trained mechanic! Ask them to check the essential functions, such as your brake system, alternator, and wheel bearings. Also, never ignore any warning lights, such as your “check engine” one – this is your car begging for help!

Although most people know reckless driving is dangerous, many aren’t aware that it’s also bad for your poor car. Hitting speed bumps and driving too fast can cause wear and tear on your car’s parts, ageing them before their time. Slow down and be more mindful – it can help save your life and your car’s!

Of course, no matter how well you take care of it, your car might need a part repaired or replaced due to a surprise mishap, or simply from age. If your warranty is still valid, the manufacturer will sort it out – but if the validity has expired, you’ll have to pay out of your pocket. This is when you’ll be very pleased to have an extended plan in place!
