Drive Your Car Gently

The relationship we have with our car, like any good relationship, is a constant give and take. To put it another way, if you want a relationship in which your needs are met, you need to be willing to put in the hard yards. Unlike a lot of our other relationships, our cars will never yell, talk until all hours of the night or storm off to their mother’s in a huff, so you’re pretty safe in assuming that if you follow the proper guidelines for car, your car will give you what you need. A mechanic can easily spot a loved car from an unloved one, and one of the most common signs that a car has been loved is that is has been driven gently and shown some love. If you are looking for a better relationship with your car, here are a few tips to make sure it’s smooth sailing from here on in…

Feed Her Well

Everyone likes to be wined and dined from time to time and in addition to this, we know that the better the quality of what we put into our bodies, the better we’re able to perform. Cars are no different. Filling your car up with premium petrol will not only be better for your car, it will see it get better mileage from the fuel.

Keep Her in The Manner to Which She’s Become Accustomed…

We all like nice clothes and things. Seat covers, air fresheners and regular wash and polishes will help keep your car in tip-top condition, not to mention protect it from spills, scratches and strange smells. 

Every Ego Needs A Little Inflating Once in A While..

And so do your car’s tyres. Keeping your tyres inflated to the correct pressure levels for the load your car is carrying not only helps maintain the tyres for longer (saving you from having to replace them quite so often) it makes for better, smoother driving and a more fuel-efficient journey.

In Sickness and in Health…

A car service is the vehicular equivalent of a physical at the doctor’s office, and making sure that your car doesn’t miss one can not only save you money in the long term, but can make sure that your car runs smoothly for as long as possible. Regular servicing can spot minor problems before they turn into major ones, so don’t scrimp and save and put it off…it’ll only come back to bite you in the long run. And after all, no one wants to be in a relationship with a scrooge…
