New Car Care Tips

Driving off the lot in a new car brings a feeling of accomplishment most only experience a few times in their lives. That’s why it’s important to make sure your new car stays in tip-top shape as long as possible. Here at Veterans Ford, we have some new car care tips to help you keep your vehicle in pristine condition for as long as possible!

  1. Read – While it isn’t anyone’s favorite way to spend an afternoon, reading your owner’s manual is the best way to learn everything about your car. From the specifications to the recommended maintenance schedule, everything is in there. Do yourself a favor and mark that maintenance schedule so you don’t have to find it later.
  2. Maintain – Keeping up with regularly scheduled maintenance is the most important part of taking care of your car. While the most common item is likely oil changes, check your manufacturer-recommended maintenance schedule to see what else needs done. Make an appointment with the dealership’s service department ahead of time!
  3. Drive – While it’s nearly impossible to destroy a modern-day new car simply by driving, take it easy on the gas. A new engine often sheds some metal during the first few hundred miles and its more than likely those shavings will end up in the oil. Remember to get an oil change according to the manufacturer’s recommendation!
