Make Your New Year’s Automotive Resolutions

December 22nd, 2016 by


New Year’s resolutions often revolve around personal goals, but what about that precious car you’ve got sitting in your garage? Make 2017 the year that you commit to proper maintenance, the year you enjoy the full benefits of owning a fun vehicle, or the year you restore that old hunk of metal back to its former glory. Here’s are some ideas for your New Year’s Automotive Resolutions, brought to you by the team at Tom Gill Chevrolet.

1. Get Oil Changes on Time


Getting your oil changed in a timely manner is the most basic and essential form of auto maintenance you can do. Oil is the essential fluid that lubricates your pistons and keeps them from overheating in the chambers. If you fail to get your oil changed on time, you risk reducing the lifespan of your engine, reducing the performance or your engine, and possibly destroying your engine altogether. Schedule an appointment to get your oil changed at Tom Gill Chevy today!

2. Get Your Tires Rotated

This is a maintenance procedure that people forget to take care of a lot of the time, but it can end up saving you money and improving the performance of your car. When you drive your car, your driving habits cause your tires to wear unevenly, causing lowered performance and forcing you to spend a lot of money getting your tires changed prematurely.

3. Become a More Efficient Driver

Become a More Efficient Driver

No one likes to get the gas bill at the end of the month, but you can make it easier on yourself by becoming a more efficient driver. There are a number of driving habits that can help improve the fuel economy of your vehicle, including reduced acceleration and not downshifting unnecessarily. You could also consider buying a fuel-efficient vehicle like the Chevy Volt.

4. Take a Road Trip

When you make a fun purchase on a vehicle like the Chevy Camaro, you probably didn’t envision keeping it chained to boring gridlock rush hour traffic. Unleash the full potential of your vehicle with a road trip sometime this summer and enjoy the full performance pleasure of the open road.

5. Restore That Old Car in the Garage


If you’ve had an old classic car sitting in your garage, make this the year you realize its full potential. Otherwise, it could still be sitting their collecting dust 10 years from now!
