When you buy a used car? from EchoPark Automotive, you know you can count on quality. Of course, maintaining that quality after you drive your next car home for the first time is something we're committed to as well. That being said, we want you to make an informed decision regarding the care of your vehicle which is why we've outlined some tips for keeping your car in the best shape possible, below.
This is one of the most basic ways to keep your car in great shape, and one of the most important. As you drive, your engine's oil becomes less effective. It breaks down in terms of consistency and the oil filter becomes clogged with contaminants that would otherwise do damage to your car. Simply put, routine oil changes ensure that your engine runs smoothly and efficiently.
The more you drive, the more your tires begin to wear down in terms of their tread. If tire tread wears down unevenly, you may begin to experience issues with handling. For this reason, it's recommended that you have your tires rotated, which basically means removing them and then replacing them in a different spot. So for instance, moving the front left tire to the rear right spot. Doing this ensures that the wear is experienced evenly for all four tires, ensuring that it handles as smoothly as possible.
There's no escaping the elements in the greater Denver area, and that means preparing for less-than-desirable driving conditions. Without a doubt, the best way you can ensure you're ready for winter is to equip your car with a good set of snow tires. Snow tires feature more sipes than normal tires, which helps to maintain traction when there's snow and ice on the road.
