Three ways to extend a car’s lifespan

Buying a vehicle is an investment. Not so much an investment that will return a profit in the traditional sense, but more an investment in reliability. There is no silver bullet that will ensure a vehicle will last forever. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything an owner can do to make sure their vehicles continue to operate at a high level for as long as possible. The team of expert technicians working in the Meridian Honda Service Department has identified three ways to extend a car’s lifespan. Let’s take a look at what they came up with and see how it will affect the way you drive and maintain your vehicle.

Right off the bat, we’re going to give you a bonus tip; always follow the scheduled maintenance plan laid out in your vehicle’s owner’s manual. This means staying on top of the more mundane things that can slip through the cracks like oil changes and tire rotations. Additionally, your vehicle may have different needs as it accumulates more miles. Our team is ready to help you roll with the punches along the way.

Take it easy — While Honda vehicles are among the most reliable in the market, they are not immune from abuse. When you’re pulling away from a stop sign, don’t mash the gas pedal into the floorboard. Additionally, pay attention to the road ahead and do everything you can to safely avoid things like potholes.

Keep it full — Overall, the fuel economy scores of new vehicles have never been better. However, that doesn’t mean you should push your luck just to see how low the fuel gauge can get. Routinely running your vehicle low on fuel can cause undue stress on the fuel pump. Replacing a fuel pump is one of those things that can get very expensive very quickly.

Lighten the load — Everything that you pack into a vehicle puts stress on a vehicle. Carrying around too much weight will put a strain on the brakes and other components that can shorten any vehicle’s lifespan pretty substantially. Also, the more things that are needlessly carried around will take a toll on your fuel economy.

If you’ve been putting off getting your vehicle looked at by the experts at the Meridian Honda Service Department, make an appointment today and get back on the right track.

TESTIMONIALS

Just wanted to say "Thank you!" for verifying an issue with a tire on my daughter's 2007 Honda Civic as I was driving her from the greater Houston area to Charlotte (and her on to Virginia). The Service team was friendly, accommodating, communicative at every step and if we lived anywhere close, I'd bring vehicles in there for service. Thanks again for taking care of ... us today on our travels!
