How are your New Year’s resolutions coming? Studies show that 75% of people keep up their resolutions through the first week, 64% through the first month, 46% through six months and only 8% make it a full year.

Squeaky windshield wipers? Before you buy new wiper blades, try cleaning your current ones! Gently wipe the blades off with a rag and warm water or rubbing alcohol to remove dirt and debris. If you notice cracks or chunks in the blade, however, it’s time to get them replaced.

Vehicle maintenance is something that many car owners overlook. But the truth is, taking care of your car helps it run better, reduces your risk of breaking down and saves you money by avoiding major auto repairs! This new year, make one of your resolutions to better maintain your vehicle.

  • Schedule 2 maintenance checkups a year. This is especially important if you drive a vehicle that is several years old, or over 100,000 miles. The best times to get your vehicle checked by a professional is in the fall and spring when temperatures and weather conditions are changing.
  • Keep your car clean. In the winter, harsh salts and chemicals on the road can damage your paint job. In the summer, caked on mud or dirt can make the exposed auto parts under your car rust. Any excess weight in your vehicle weighs your car down and reduces fuel efficiency.
  • Address minor problems early. If you notice a new smell or sound with your vehicle, have it looked at right away. Catching a minor issue early keeps it from turning into a major repair later on.
