New Year’s Resolutions for your Car

New Year
Happy New Year from Perry Hyundai!

If you haven’t made any New Year’s resolutions, yet, that’s ok. 2017 has just begun. If you want an idea for a resolution you can actually keep, consider these resolutions for your car.

  • Drive more efficiently. Being an inefficient driver not only wastes your money, but it’s bad for the environment, too. One of the biggest dings to your efficiency is aggressive driving. In fact, doing things like speeding and accelerating too quickly can decrease your efficiency by as much as 35%.
  • Stop idling. Letting your engine run while you’re not going anywhere is a complete waste of gas. If you’re going to stop for longer than you normally would at a stoplight or stop sign, just turn off the engine. You should also avoid “warming up” your car before you leave in the morning. The fastest way to warm it up is just by driving.
  • Keep up with your maintenance. Check in your owner’s manual and you should find a recommended service schedule that includes things like oil changes, tire rotations, and more. Get caught up on this to ensure your car runs the way it should for years to come.
  • Don’t run on empty. Try not to let your tank fall below one-quarter full. In the winter, keep it at least half full to prevent frozen fuel lines.

The Importance of Getting an Oil Change

Oil
Understand the importance of getting an oil change.

Are you a Honda owner? Do you need to get your oil changed? Bring your car over to Rex Perry Hyundai. We’re honoring oil change cards from any Honda dealership and have trained technicians who will know exactly how to take care of your car! Save a buck at Rex Perry, and don’t skip your oil change!

Getting your oil changed is one of the most important parts of routine maintenance you can perform on your car, and there’s no better place to get it done than at a car dealership. Engine oil is what keeps your car’s engine parts working smoothly together, so when it starts to get old and collect fragments and dust and dirt, it can’t do its job properly. Getting fresh, clean oil for your car every few thousand miles is the best way to keep your engine running and keep it from overheating.

It’s also important to see a dealer for your oil change because they’ll see under your car and be able to notice if anything is wrong. Don’t underestimate the importance of getting an oil change. Come to Rex Perry today!
