Many people enter the new year with the idea of going on a diet, committing to a walk every day, or staying in better touch with friends and family. Those are all great goals, but we thought it would be fun to put together a list of New Year’s car resolutions as well. Keep your car working great, get your car back into shape, and have more fun behind the wheel with the help of this New Year’s car resolution guide from Sunrise Chevrolet.
Give Your Car a Makeover
You know it. We all know it. After years of owning a car, the wear begins to show. A ding here, a couple scratches there, a curb swipe, and before you know it you’re looking at the need for a major makeover. Tackle your car makeover head on by visiting the auto body repair shop and checking out some DIY tutorials.
Take Care of Standard Maintenance on Time
One of the easiest ways to make sure your car maintains its value and works like new for longer is to get regular maintenance on time. Look at your owner’s manual or chat with someone at your local service center
about when to bring your car in for oil changes, fluid replacements, tire rotations, wheel alignments, and more.
Promise Yourself Not to Ignore the “Check Engine” Light
A sure fire way to get into automotive trouble is letting your “check engine” light go unattended. The light goes off for a reason, and it could be a serious one. Mitigate expensive repairs and stay safe by bringing your vehicle in for service as soon as the “check” engine light comes on.
Buy and Restore a Classic Car
If you already have an old classic collecting dust in the garage, make 2017 the year that you surprise your friends and family by turning it into the object of everyone’s desire. If you’ve always thought about buying one but never bit the bullet, buy a classic on the cheap and restore it to its former glory!
Take a Road Trip
If you own a vehicle like the Chevy Corvette
but only use it to get to and from work, that’s like keeping an untamed animal in a cage. Buy a sports car or take your current sports car out for a big adventure in 2017 to remember why you loved cars in the first place.
