New Year’s Resolutions for Being a Better Car Owner

Happy New Year’s from the team at Placentia Super Service! We want to wish everyone a safe and healthy 2021. The New Year also means it is time for a fresh start, which means it is the perfect opportunity to start thinking of resolutions. Many of us might be thinking of resolutions to improve our health and lifestyle, but what about your vehicle? 

Your vehicle is such an important part of your life -- think of how much you rely on your car each day. New Year’s resolutions geared toward your vehicle are an excellent way to show your car a little extra TLC this year. Not only will these resolutions preserve the longevity and driveability of your car, but they can also help you save money in the long-run. We have compiled a list of New Year’s Resolutions to help you become a better car owner: 

  1. Keep up with preventive maintenance. If you are looking to keep your vehicle through 2021 and beyond, preventative maintenance is key. The team at Placentia Super Service strongly believes in the power of regular service, as we can often identify and fix issues before they turn into larger and more costly repairs. 
  2. Eliminate all distractions while driving. Did you know on average, nine people are killed by distracted driving every day? Distracted driving means more than just texting and driving; but it also means taking a photo, eating and drinking, and even putting on makeup. 
  3. Practice courteous and compassionate driving. It is easy to get frustrated while driving, as we can’t help but get annoyed at a driver who doesn’t use their blinker or merges too close to us. The team at Placentia Super Service tries to take a breathe and treat other drivers with care and respect, especially in light of circumstances this past year. 
  4. Make sure your vehicle stays hydrated. Just like how you need fluids, your vehicle does too. There are various fluids in your car, including brake fluid, oil, and coolant, that keep your car performing in tip-top shape. 

The team at Placentia Super Service is here to help you accomplish your New Year’s resolutions. Bring your vehicle to our shop for routine service and maintenance, and we can start this year off on the right foot. Schedule an appointment online.
