How to Keep Your Car Running Longer

Tips For Keeping Your Car Longer


No matter if you buy new or used, a car is an expensive purchase. That makes it crucial for you to prioritize your vehicle’s longevity on the road. Here are a few tips to keep your car running longer:

  • Keep up with routine maintenance: This is the single biggest factor to ensure your car performs safely for years to come. Bring your vehicle to Packey Webb Ford for every oil change and tire rotation, and we’ll do thorough inspections of your vehicle and follow along with its maintenance schedule.
  • Pay attention to your dashboard: Your dashboard is full of indicator lights that let you know of potential vehicle health problems. If a light comes on, don’t ignore it. Look it up in your owner’s manual and, if necessary, bring the vehicle to Packey Webb Ford for repair.
  • Drive safely: By following the speed limit and obeying all traffic laws, you’ll reduce your chance of an accident. Driving faster and harder is also rougher on your vehicle components and can lead to issues faster.
  • Drive less: Another way to keep your vehicle around for years to come is to rely on it less. When possible, carpool with friends, family, and coworkers; ride your bike or walk; or rely on public transportation.
