Our car is already eight years old and has almost 62,000 miles on it. The car is still in good shape. Over the years, we have not had any issues with it. Overall I can say that it has been a pretty good car. One of the most important things to keep your car in good shape is constant maintenance and upkeep. Changing the oil and filter on a regular basis is the most important issue. My hubby and I are do-it-yourselfers so we change the oil and filter ourselves. When my hubby got sick, I took over that job and many others.
It was just a few days ago when we bought new tires. They really were not in bad shape but with winter and snow coming, we thought the extra traction would help. When I went to the parking lot after the tire changed, the car would not start because the battery was dead. The store was closing but the mechanic was still there to help me get my car started. That was when he suggested to me that I needed to have a new battery also.
Since we had not changed the battery of the car since we bought it, we decided that would be the next thing that needed to be upgraded. Now, I feel safe that it will not quit working on me while I am driving in the middle of nowhere, especially during the winter. Here are a few more tips for maintaining your car. Like any other mechanical thing, your car works better when treated with tender loving care.
