Importance Of Maintenance Even When Driving Less

How Keep Your Vehicle Maintained When Driving Less

Regular maintenance is the key to a healthy and long-lasting vehicle. Drivers who use their vehicles frequently will rack up miles and require maintenance sooner than those who don’t. But just because you may be driving less does not mean you can put off maintenance completely. In fact, there are some special steps you should take when driving less often to ensure your vehicle remains in top condition for the next time that you do need it. We invite you to learn about proper vehicle maintenance when driving less and to then schedule an appointment for service at Elder Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM Cedar Creek in Gun Barrel, TX.

Keep Up With Your Normal Routine Services

Many service intervals are measured in mileage. For example, it is recommended that drivers with synthetic engine oil have their oil changed every 7,500 miles. But when you are driving less, mileage is not always a good indicator of your service needs. It is important to keep up with routine maintenance services such as oil changes, tire rotations, and even car washes. Oil can degrade with time, tires can develop shape imperfections, and excess dirt and grime can damage your vehicle’s exterior. It’s a good idea to have your vehicle inspected and basic maintenance items addressed at least once a year, regardless of how little you may drive.

Drive Your Vehicle At Least Twice Each Month

Even if you have nowhere in particular to go, we recommend that you take your vehicle for a quick drive at least twice each month. This will help promote lubrication among your vehicle parts and prevent hoses, belts, and other components from deteriorating. Occasional driving will also protect your battery, as your vehicle being turned off for too long can allow it to eventually lose its charge. Just a quick drive around your neighborhood can go a long way for the health of your Dodge, RAM, Jeep®, or Chrysler.
