Ways to Save on Car Expenses in 2021

Oil Change | Victoria, TX

The new year is a great time to hold yourself accountable to a financial plan. As you work out your budget for 2021, here are two simple ways that you can save on car expenses.

Maintenance

When you keep good care of your vehicle, you can save big on maintenance costs in the long run. Keep your car properly tuned, since a poorly-tuned car will use more gasoline and cost you more than the tune up.

Stay on top of maintenance by changing your car’s oil and oil filter regularly. Frequent oil changes not only help extend the life of your engine, but they also pay off when it comes to less repairs and engine wear.

When it comes to your tires, check the tire pressure often and have them balanced. In addition, sure to regularly check your car’s fluids and air filters.

Gas

Develop gas-saving driving habits that will boost your vehicle’s efficiency and save you money on fuel. It takes more gas to accelerate to normal speed from a full stop, so make sure to accelerate gently instead of abruptly.

And refrain from slamming on the brakes suddenly, to further conserve gas. Regularly monitor traffic ahead and minimize distractions in the cabin, so you can anticipate when to slow down. That way, you’ll have plenty of time to bring the vehicle to a fall halt you need to.

Another way to save money on car-related expenses is the new year is to get a great deal on a new or leased vehicle here at Jordan Toyota. Stop by to speak with one of our friendly sales reps who will be happy to match you with an affordable Toyota model that suits your needs and lifestyle.
