Getting Maximum Use of Your Car or Truck

Submitted by Anonymous on May 28, 2013

Keeping your car or vehicle for fifth-teen years, or 225,000 miles of driving, may save up to $31,000 or possibly more!! according to the Consumer Reports magazine. When you compared to the cost of buying a similar model of car every 5 years, which is the tendency for many auto sales. In an annual national vehicle survey, it was determined from 6,769 readers who had logged 200,000 miles or more on their cars or trucks. To name just a few, the cars included an1990 Lexus LS400 with 332,000 miles and also a 1994 Ford Ranger pick-up that had 488,000 miles!! Calculating the costs in buying a new Mid sized car or pick up truck every five years for 15 years – including the depreciation, taxes, fees and insurance – it was estimated that the cost would be around $20,500 more than it would have cost to maintain one car or truck for the same 15 year period. Add to that, up to $10,300 in interest charges that you could have been earned on that money, assuming at a five percent interest rate and a three percent of inflation rate, over that time. To reach or exceed the milestone of 200,000 miles or more, on a car or truck needs to be well maintained, of course. Below is a list of a few simple steps for the maximum performance and the longevity, not to mention savings. Read and follow the car's maintenance/service guide in your owner's manual and have the suggested services made promptly. The use of recommended types of the fluids, including oil and transmission fluids is always the best practice. Have your cars engine compartment checked regularly. Listen for any weird sounds, sniff for odd smells and look for fraying or bulges in pipes or belts Keep your car clean inside and out. Use a quality wax on the cars paint surface.
