Making new year’s resolutions for ourselves is very popular nowadays. For this 2016, our team here at Royal Motors wants to challenge you to make a different type of resolution – one for your vehicle instead of yourself!
Below are some of the best commitments you can make to keep your vehicle in better condition, enjoy a better ride, and even save a few dollars:
1. Tune Up: How long has it been since you topped off fluids or changed your vehicle’s spark plugs and timing belts?. Don’t forget the little things! Little periodic fixes can save you money in the long run in big repairs, and you will ultimately be safer. Royal Motors makes this even easier for you since we offer FREE fluid check and top off, tire pressure check & correction, and a bulb check when you bring us your vehicle for repairs.
2. Be Fuel Efficient: Did you know that aggressive driving and speeding can increase your fuel consumption by as much as 33% ? Also, Regular maintenance as prescribed by the vehicle owner’s manual will help your vehicle achieve its best fuel economy. Some overlooked maintenance items, such as a dirty air filter and under-inflated tires, can increase your fuel cost up to 13%. Avoid keeping unnecessary items in your vehicle, especially heavy ones. An extra 100 pounds in your vehicle could reduce your MPG by about 1%
3. Mind Your Tires: Tire care is extremely important when it comes to your vehicle. Proper tire care can often mean the difference between arriving at your destination safely and finding yourself on the side of the road with a flat – or worse. Remember to check your tire pressure constantly, specially during the winter time. Tire pressure drops between one and two pounds for every 10-degree decrease in temperature.
