Tips For Extending Your Vehicle LifeDon’t Settle For Cheap Insurance
You may be saving some money now when you pay for cheap insurance but you certainly won’t be doing yourself any favors in the long run.  Always look for an insurer that will guarantee the work that they authorize and will pay for OEM parts.

Break Your Vehicle In
If you push your car too far in the beginning then you can cause some serious damage to it.  Just take it easy and give it some time to be broken-in, you’ll be glad you did!

Run Your Air Conditioning in Winter
Car Air ConditioningWe know that this isn’t something that you typically want to do especially when you’re stuck in the middle of a Michigan winter but it can really help your vehicle.  The cold air keeps seals in good shape and prevents the compressor’s moving parts from seizing up.

Fix Your Weather-Stripping
When you see rainwater or snow seeping into your car then it’s time to take a look at your weather-stripping.  Many times it’s an easy fix and you can use adhesives or foam rods.  If the problem is really bad then you can order new weather-stripping that fits your vehicle exactly.  Refrain from purchasing any generic products, they won’t last and will end up costing you more money than you need to spend.

Cracked Tail LightTape Your Cracked Tail light
You may not be alarmed that your tail lights or headlights have cracks in them but it can actually turn into a serious issue if you let it go.  Water can get inside of your lights and you’ll be wasting a lot of money to have the problem righted.  Well here’s a quick and easy fix that will keep your money in your pocket: use tape!  There is specially designed tape for this exact use that comes in red or clear that can set your mind at rest.

Rotate Your Tires
When you rotate your tires you not only are spreading the wear evenly but you’re also ensuring that you get the most out of your tires before you have to replace them.  Ideally this should be done every 6,000 to 7,500 miles.
