New Year’s Resolutions for Being a Better Car Owner

First, we would like to wish everyone a safe and healthy New Year! It is officially 2021, which means it is time for fresh starts and new goals! Now is the time to start planning your New Year resolutions. The team at Guaranteed Automotive & Transmission is here to help. We have compiled a list of New Year’s resolutions for being a better and safer car owner. 

Our vehicles are a part of our family. Just think of how much we rely on our cars as we drive to school, work, and so on. It makes sense to have New Year’s resolutions that dedicate a little TLC to our trusty sidekicks. Here are New Year’s resolutions for being a better car owner: 

  1. Stay up-to-date with preventative maintenance. An essential part of keeping your vehicle performing in tip-top shape for the long-term is bringing your car to Guaranteed Automotive & Transmission Service for routine services, such as an oil service or air filter inspection. Our technicians will thoroughly inspect your vehicle and perform services designed to preserve your vehicle’s longevity and driveability. 
  2. Learn how to jump-start your vehicle. Jump-starting your car is incredibly easy to do. Not only can you save yourself, but you might be able to rescue some stranded on the side of the road. The team at Guaranteed Automotive & Transmission would be more than happy to answer any questions you have and take a look at your battery for any signs of trouble. 
  3. No more distracted driving. Did you know that, on average, nine people die a day because of distracted driving? Distracted driving means more than just texting and driving, but it also means changing the music or even eating and drinking. We recommend eliminating all distractions for safer driving. 
  4. Keep your car clean and tidy. For some of us, keeping your vehicle clean comes easy, but it is more of a struggle for others. First, begin 2021 by removing everything from your vehicle that you don’t need, including those granola wrappers, miscellaneous papers, and so on. Then, set your vehicle up with a small trash can. This way, you can keep your trash accumulated in one area. 

The team at Guaranteed Automotive & Transmission is here to help you start 2021 off on the right foot. We can help you get started on accomplishing your New Year’s resolutions, beginning with preventative maintenance. Schedule an appointment for an inspection, and our team would be happy to answer any questions you may have!
