New vehicles are more expensive than they’ve ever been. Inventory shortages have led to markups and have made it almost impossible to find some new models for prices anywhere near MSRP.
So, while you may not like your current daily driver, keeping it on the road can save you thousands and may prevent you from getting ripped off in today’s cutthroat car market.
How can you keep your ride going for as long as possible? We know that oil changes, tire rotations, filter replacements, and tune-ups aren’t much fun. At the same time, ignoring those things can lead to premature wear and tear on your car and cost you big bucks when things start failing. Keeping track of the little stuff generally helps prevent, or at least reduce the frequency of, more extensive repairs. Proper lubrication and correct fluid levels also help prevent engine and drivetrain wear.
