car cleaning to prolong vehicle health and save money

Looking after your vehicle will save money in the long run

The current financial situation is having a great impact on the UK, and as we all consider ways we may be able to save money, this month our team at Stourbridge Automotive thought we would share some ideas with regards to looking after vehicles to maximise finances.

It is a well-known fact that vehicles that are looked after, tend to cost less to run and repair. The more care, that owners and drivers take in looking after their AudiBMWMINI, Mercedes JaguarLand Rover or Range Rover vehicles, the less they will need to pay out for during the long run.

Save money ideas for vehicle longevity

  1. Wash and clean – By regularly cleaning the vehicle, owner / drovers can monitor for any broken functions or signs of rust and repair quickly to prevent any further problems from escalating.
  2. Driving slower – Fast acceleration and fierce breaking can put stress on the vehicle. By driving a little slower, the car is given time to respond without putting extra pressure on mechanical parts.
  3. Reduce mileage – Less miles means less wear and tear. Try to reduce journey mileage where possible to extend the longevity of the vehicle.
  4. Check oil levels – Oil levels should be checked regularly to keep the engine in good working condition. A competent oil level should display within the markers on the dipstick and should be topped up the level if low. Refer to vehicle handbook as to type of oil to use for your vehicle and if your vehicle does not have a dipstick, as levels may show as readings.
  5. Booking a vehicle service An annual vehicle service at Stourbridge Automotive for AudiBMWMINI, Mercedes JaguarLand Rover or Range Rover cars, not only gives them a complete health check but can also monitor for any deterioration, which can be responded to quickly to prevent further cost.
