We made it everyone. It’s 2021, the new year is here, and we can finally say goodbye to 2020! Now that the new year has rolled around, it’s a great time to take a look at your driving and automotive maintenance habits to make some changes for the better. With that in mind, the pre-owned approval experts at B&B Automotive have put together a list of some simple steps you can take this year to be safer, happier, and spend a little less money on the road.
Keep up with Maintenance
The new year is the perfect time to start fresh and start forming better vehicle maintenance habits. This step couldn’t be easier: just bring your vehicle to B&B Automotive! Our service technicians can give your ride a top-to-bottom inspection to start the year off on the right foot. We can change your oil, check your filters, and inspect your brake pads to ensure that everything is in great shape. From there you just have to follow your manufacturer’s suggested maintenance schedule. Keeping on top of your maintenance will not only keep your car running great right now, it will save you money in the long run by extending the life of your vehicle. So, if you resolved to save more money this year you’ll be killing two birds with one stone!
Pack a Snack
Speaking of saving money, how often do you find yourself hungry on the road stopping for fast food? We recommend stowing away a few shelf-stable and healthy snacks that you can dig into when your stomach starts rumbling while you’re stuck in traffic. Avoiding the drive-thru will save you time, money, and your waistline. We call that a resolution three-for-one!
Cut the Clutter
Did you know that the cleanliness of our surroundings can have a profound effect on our stress levels? Studies show that living and working in clean, organized spaces provide tangible mental and physical health benefits, and that includes your car. One super easy step you can take is to stash a small wastebasket in your vehicle for trash. Empty it once a week and you’ll start to notice a huge drop in the amount of refuse that tends to pile up while you’re driving. Also, take the time to go through all of the items you keep in your car and decide whether you really want them in there. Keep anything that you need or makes you happy, but you’re probably good to take out that jacket you forgot you had that’s been sitting on your backseat floorboards for nine months. We also recommend washing your car at least once a month, as this will keep it looking its best and remove dust and other particles that can damage the exterior.
