If you’re hoping to set some helpful New Year’s resolutions this year, don’t worry – there’s still time. At As New Auto Recyclers, we’ve put together our top New Year car care resolutions to stick to.
This year, make it your mission to keep on top of maintenance. Take the time to regularly inspect your vehicle and keep on top of anything that needs repairing. Not only will this ensure your car is safe to drive, but it can also save you money on costly repairs down the line. For example, regularly change your car’s oil and oil filter, check your car’s fluids and replace damaged windscreen wipers when necessary.
Wash and clean your car regularly to keep it sparkling. Buildup of dirt not only looks unsightly, but it can also lead to rust and corrosion. Take the time to pick up food wrappers and other pieces of rubbish from your car and clean up any spills and stains as soon as they happen. Regularly clean interior surfaces such as the dashboard and steering wheel to get rid of unhealthy bacteria.
Make it your resolution to regularly check your tyres. The condition of your tyres are extremely important not only for the efficiency of your car, but for health and safety too. All cars are legally required to have a minimum tread depth of 1.6mm. Make regular weekly checks on your tyres, looking for signs of bulging, along with cuts and tears to the tyre wall.
Don’t forget to regularly check that your tyres are inflated to the correct pressure too. If you notice anything unusual, take your car to your local garage and ask them to check it over. At As New Auto Recycling, we take unloved and unwanted cars and turn them into scrap. Based in Whitley Bay, we offer local motorists a fast, free and convenient collection and dismantling service, making it very convenient to get cash for your unwanted vehicle.
