    Driving Tips to Help You Extend the Lifespan of Your Car

    Last updated 8 days ago

    When you purchase a new Chrysler, Jeep, or Dodge, your vehicle will provide you with many years and miles of outstanding performance. To achieve the best possible lifespan from your new vehicle, it is important to practice smart and sensible driving. With proper maintenance and care, your car will remain in peak shape for many years to come. Here is a look at some driving tips that will help you extend the lifespan of your car.

    Avoid Excessive Stopping and Starting

    Excessive stopping and starting can take a toll on your car’s engine. To keep your engine in great shape, you should plan your trips carefully and avoid stop and go traffic whenever possible.  By reducing the amount of stop and start driving that you perform on a daily basis, you will help you engine run smoothly for as long as possible.

    Ease off the Accelerator

    When you first start driving in the beginning of the day, you may want to ease off of your accelerator. A cold engine is more susceptible to damage when you drive at high speeds or accelerate suddenly. To preserve the lifespan of your engine, it is a great idea to drive smoothly and steadily at all times.

    Drive Carefully In Extreme Weather

    Extreme weather conditions can place excessive strain on your car’s internal systems, and can also increase your chances of experiencing a collision. If you are driving in a heavy rainstorm, it is important to drive cautiously and carefully. By staying safe on the road at all times, you will help to extend the lifespan of your car.
