When you're purchasing a new vehicle from your local Chrysler or Jeep dealer, you want to know that the new car you're getting is going to last you for years to come. While shopping for a new car instead of a used car can help you get a little bit of extra time out of your car, what's really going to keep it running is how you treat it once you own it. Here are a few tips you can use to guarantee the most use out of your new car and keep it running smoothly for years.

Make A Schedule

The key to a long lifespan for your car, at the end of the day, is consistency. Cars, trucks, vans, and any other kind of vehicle out there on the road all require regular maintenance to protect the parts of the car that keep it running smoothly. Create a schedule for yourself to take your car in for maintenance, or put reminders on your calendar. Little things like regular oil changes can go a long way in extending the life of your vehicle.

Don't Wait On Repairs

Has the dreaded "check engine" light popped up again? Instead of putting it off and ignoring it, assuming it's no big deal, schedule service as soon as possible. Waiting to make repairs on your car can worsen issues and eventually start impacting other parts of your vehicle, all adding up to more expensive repairs and a shortened lifespan for your vehicle.

Go To Your Dealer For Service

If you drive a Dodge, would you take your car to place that only performs Jeep service? Instead of going to any old mechanic, try to take your car into the dealership where you purchased it. In 2017, the total cost of service and parts sales at dealerships in the United States was greater than $114 billion. Your Jeep dealership will be able to provide better and more model-specific Jeep service than a general auto shop. This ensures your car is getting the best possible service to keep it running well.

A car is a major purchase, and you want to do everything you can to protect that purchase and have it last for as long as possible. For more information on how to keep your car running or to schedule service for your vehicle, contact Fair Oaks Jeep Dodge today.
