How to Keep Your Car Running as Long as Possible

Family on Road Trip

 

Thanks to advancements in automotive technology, vehicles are now lasting longer than ever. It’s not uncommon to see vehicles with more than 200,000 miles on the roads of Muscle Shoals and Florence. You may be interested in the secrets of how to keep a car running for 200,000 miles. If you are looking to get the most out of your vehicle, you may be wondering how to keep your car as long as possible. In this guide from Greenway Toyota of the Shoals, we will discuss how to get the most mileage out of your car and how to ensure it runs smoothly for many years to come. 

How to Get the Most Mileage Out of Your Car

If you are wondering how to keep high mileage cars running, routine vehicle maintenance is a must. These maintenance tips can help you keep your car as long as possible:

  1. Follow the Maintenance Schedule from the Manufacturer – The manufacturer knows your particular make and model best, which is why they have crafted a maintenance schedule to ensure your vehicle continues to run as intended. Make sure that you are familiar with your vehicle’s maintenance schedule, and do not skip any of the necessary maintenance tasks. 
  2. Don’t Forget About Your Tires – Your tires are a critical component of your vehicle that are often overlooked. Driving on underinflated tires can put unnecessary stress on your vehicle, shortening its lifespan. Driving on worn tires can also be very unsafe, as it increases the risk of a blowout on Huntsville roads. 
  3. Regularly Clean the Interior and Exterior – Dirt and debris can accumulate on the exterior paint and undercarriage, which can cause damage over time. Regular car washes can minimize the risk of damage. It is also important to keep the interior tidy as well to retain as much resale value as possible. 
  4. Don’t Ignore the Warning Signs – Is your vehicle making a strange noise? Do you notice vibration in your steering wheel? These issues may be warning signs of bigger problems and should be addressed as soon as possible. 
  5. Improve Your Driving Habits – Accelerating slowly and braking gently are just a few of the many ways you can improve your driving habits and increase the lifespan of your vehicle.
