Whether you plan on selling your used car or keeping it until it dies, there are some practical strategies for extending its life. Here are four tips to make your used car last longer.

Keep it clean

Regularly wash and wax your used car. This will help prevent debris like dust and road salt from accumulating on its undercarriage. It’s also important to wax your vehicle a few times a year to help protect the exterior from small dents and scratches.

Stay on top of routine maintenance

One of the most important ways to prolong your car’s life is to follow its routine maintenance schedule. This can be found in the owner’s manual. Regular upkeep items include oil changes, air-filter replacements, and brake-pad replacements.

Monitor fluids

Regularly examine your vehicle’s fluids to make sure they are clean and replenished. And make sure to check the brake, power steering, coolant, and transmission fluids, as well as the engine oil. This will help your car’s parts run smoothly and prevent damage due to dirty fluids or a lack of fluids.

Be vigilant about unusual noises

Bring your used vehicle to E-Z Way Auto Sales if you notice that it’s been making a weird sound while you’re driving. If you hear a ticking, rattling, or sputtering sound, this could indicate a serious problem with one or more of your car’s systems. Even if it turns out to be a small problem, it’s best to fix it while it’s still small before it turns into a larger problem that’s more expensive to repair.
