maintain your car
I have an older car. It is not the fanciest car, but I am determined to drive it into the ground—in a good way. I commute about 40 miles each way to work every day, and I want to make the drive easy on me and my car. I recently replaced all my tires and got an alignment that was an unexpected expense. Merry Christmas to me! The technician at the shop let me know that I could have avoided the alignment and possibly delayed the new tires by doing a few simple things to extend the life of the tires.
Jessica created this handy car maintenance schedule for us to share so you can keep a record of what to do and when for your car. Remember that your average monthly miles will determine how often you need to do some of these things. Also, regular maintenance varies by vehicle so check the manufacturers recommendations for what needs to be done and how often. Check with your neighbors to see if they have a great mechanic that can give you some advice. Good luck and safe travels!
