How to Take Care of a New Car

how to take care of a new carWhether you are a veteran car owner or new to car ownership, it is important to remind yourself of the responsibilities you have for your car, to ensure your safety and efficiency on the road and to get the most out of your resale value when you go to sell it or trade it in.

Here is how to take care of a new car:

  • Keep up with regular maintenance:

    Seriously, this is the most important thing you can do—and you don’t even have the hard part. All you have to do is schedule a routine maintenance appointment at Gateway Buick GMC roughly every 5,000 miles or six months. We’ll keep up with things like oil changes, brake checks, tire rotations, air filter replacements, and more—and we’ll be able to spot potential problems before they become too big or too expensive to fix.

  • Keep it clean:

    Washing and waxing your car regularly not only shows you take pride in your car, but also helps protect it from rust damage. And taking care of your interior makes your car more pleasant to be in, for you and your passengers, and helps ensure higher resale value.

  • Drive it responsibly:

    Obey all traffic laws, don’t drive aggressively, and never drive drunk, distracted, or sleepy.
