Tips to Make Your Used Car Last Longer | St. Cloud, MN
It’s vital to keep your used car in good shape to counteract the mileage and wear that the previous owner put on the vehicle — and that you’ll be putting on it now!
If you’re wondering how to prolong the life of your used car, take it into Don Robinson Mitsubishi’s service center for regular maintenance. And, follow these tips that will help your used car last longer.
Change fluids regularly
The fluids in your car need to be flushed and replaced regularly to keep your car running in good health. This includes changing the engine oil, coolants, windshield fluid, and even transmission fluid at the proper intervals.
It might seem obvious, but one of the best ways to extend the life of your used car is to avoid pushing your car too hard. Avoid gunning the acceleration or slamming the brakes as much as possible. Go gently on it! If you drive your car within its means and avoid unnecessary strain, you’ll damage the engine less.
Check the battery
Saint Cloud winters can quickly drain your car’s battery due to the frigid temperatures. Our expert technicians at Don Robinson Mitsubishi can measure the battery charge to make sure it’s ready for the winter and in good shape for the long term.
If your used car needs a fluid flush or maintenance inspection, we’d be glad to diagnose and fix it. Contact the Don Robinson Mitsubishi service center to schedule a checkup.
