1. Avoid Pushing Your Acceleration too Hard

This tip might be hard to hear for some, but just because your vehicle can go from 0-60 in a short period of time, doesn’t mean that it should. Pushing your vehicle too hard adds strain and wear to it, especially its engine, and as such should be avoided unless necessary. Slowly increasing in speed at a gentle pace is key to getting the best possible driving experience.

2. Change Oil and Fluids Regularly

Another key tip is that you don’t ignore your vehicles oil or other fluids of importance, as this is almost a guaranteed disaster that can lead to a blown engine. This is, obviously, a super expensive item to replace. Generally, the oil should be changed every 3000 miles, but you should check your manufacturer’s manual to make sure you follow their procedure.

3. Don’t Store or Carry Heavy Objects

A third and final tip we have is that you don’t store or carry heavy objects in your vehicle for too long, as it can add strain to your vehicle.
