3 Things That Cause Damage to Your Car
- Not changing your oil. The purpose of an oil change is to replenish your engine oil with fresh lubricants to keep all of the moving parts in your engine moving with as little friction as possible. If you wait too long or don’t follow your vehicle’s recommended oil change intervals, you could find yourself with costly repair bill that could have easily been avoided by getting an oil change.
- Parking in the sun too long. Sunlight can be a killer to the interior of your automobile. The direct rays of sunlight can cause irreversible damage to your dashboard, seats and upholstery so go out and buy yourself a sunshade to avoid sun damage to your vehicle.
- Stomping on the gas pedal. The more often you stomp on the gas pedal of your car, the more problems you will end up having in the future. The unnecessary strain that is caused by overzealous acceleration can cause all sorts of damage to your vehicle so keep the quick acceleration to a minimum and you’ll stay out the repair shop.
