Keep Your Car Healthy
Book of the Year: Your Owner's Manual
You'll find the secrets to your vehicle's health and happiness in that book that's often forgotten about in the glove box. From what kind of oil to use to how often to change it, and many other helpful tidbits, everyone should consider their owner's manual a must-read. Access it anytime at helminc.com.
Oil: Change is Good
Regularly changing your vehicle's engine oil and filter is one of the most important things you can do to keep your vehicle in tip-top shape. Over time, your oil will break down and your filter will become clogged with contaminants. Depending on how you drive and what you drive, this may take as few as three months or 3,000 miles. Make sure you check your owner's manual for the recommended oil maintenance schedule and the right type of oil for your vehicle. This can make all the difference when it comes to your engine's health and your vehicle's value.
Maintain Your Car's Value
For Denverites, snow and ice are unavoidable. Winter weather and all the sand and salt that come with it can certainly take their toll on your vehicle's health. So, checking your vehicle periodically for rust and other winter damage is a smart move. Simply bring it in to EchoPark® and ask your favorite service technicians to take a look. They'll be happy to give you an update on any rust or corrosion that may be affecting your ride.
Go the Lesser Mile
Proper vehicle maintenance is an easy way to maintain your vehicle's value. From regular oil changes to scheduled maintenance, knowing when to bring your vehicle in for service is one of the most important responsibilities of car ownership. Trade-in Tip: Remember to save all of your maintenance receipts. These can be a great indicator of how well you've taken care of your car.
Increase Your Fuel Efficiency
Drive With a Light Foot
As your speed increases, your vehicle's drag increases causing an increase in fuel consumption. Less accelerating and less braking is also a great way to save fuel. By simply anticipating the traffic and applying slow steady acceleration and braking, your fuel consumption may decrease by as much as 20%. So as tempting as it can be, obeying the speed limit and driving slow is not only safer for you and others on the road, it may save you money on fuel as well.
Pump It Up
Under-inflated tires increases fuel consumption by as much as three percent, and they're more likely to blow and cause an accident. Also consider buying fuel-efficient tires, which are engineered to provide less rolling resistance, minimizing fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
