We have plenty of amazing used cars to choose from here at I.G. Burton Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM of Smyrna. Each one has many miles left to drive, but a vehicle won’t last a long time if you don’t do everything that you can to take care of it. If you want your used car to live a long and healthy life, these tips can help.

Stick to a Routine Maintenance Schedule

This is the best way to ensure that your car lasts a long time. Your car needs certain maintenance at certain times. Knowing when your car needs to visit our Dodge service center and for what can help you keep your vehicle running smoothly.

If you ignore your car’s maintenance needs, you’re taking a big risk. That’s because small mechanical issues can end up becoming big, expensive problems. Some mechanical problems, like engine damage, can even end up shortening the life of your used car. So, stick to your routine maintenance schedule and don’t put off service appointments!

Keep Your Vehicle Clean

Cleaning your vehicle often doesn’t just offer aesthetic benefits. Keeping your car clean can help protect it from rust and other sorts of damage. This is especially true during the winter months, when road salt can accumulate on your vehicle and damage crucial components.

Drive Safely

Driving safely can put less stress on your vehicle and all of its parts. If you drive aggressively, speeding and stopping short frequently for example, you’re wearing down the parts that keep your vehicle running smoothly.
