3)  Be Careful when Looking For a New Car

When you are shopping for a new car you want to make sure that car is going to last. The first thing you need to make sure is that the car company is going to be around for awhile, that parts are not only easy to get but the reputation for supplying those parts.

The unfortunate truth is that too many fantastica running cars are scrapped simply because the parts are to hard to get. With that being said our recommendation is that you visit a local unrelated mechanic. He will give you an honest recommendation about who has a good reputation for supplying parts for older cars. Brands such as Saab, Toyota, and Volvo have a long standing reputation for making parts available for many years.

4) Be Gentle When You Drive

While driving your car do it a favor and drive it gently. Many people ask themselves what does being gentle when driving even look like? Well it means anticipating when you are going to need to break so that you do not come to sudden and abrupt stops. Or accelerating calmly so you do not feel the gradual speed increase. If it is freezing outside you need to wait even longer before you can drive it hard. Make sure to drive for several minutes before getting on the highway. This gives the oil time to warm up and lubricate the engine well.

Lastly if you are driving a new car it is very important to listen to the break-in advice. Despite the manufacturer’s recommendations it is advised to change your cars oil after the first 1,000 miles.
