Cars inevitably age over time and sometimes, it can feel like all you do is repair them. There are things you can do to make your life easier though, which may cost you a little bit more money now but can save you a great deal of money in the long term.
First of all, carry out basic checks on your car every so often. This can just be a quick visual check to make sure nothing is physically damaged and things like the lights and windscreen wipers are working as they should.
You should get your oil changed according to the instructions in your manual as well. Monitor the oil though, as this can be a good indicator if something else is going wrong with your vehicle.
Check your tyre pressure regularly, perhaps once or twice a month. It’s easy to do and can actually make a big difference to the way your car drives and the amount of fuel it is using.
