Tips To Extend the Life of Your Car

You’ve bought your dream car and now you want to make it last as long as possible in top condition. Here are some things to remember as you pull out of the dealer’s lot:

Take it slow when you get stuck:

If you get bogged down in snow or mud, try not to create any damage to your car. The key is to slowly keep rocking the car backwards and forwards till you get enough momentum to break free.

Try to avoid spinning your wheels uncontrollably, as this will heat up your transmission and drive-train and can cause unnecessary wear and tear. In the end it might be easier and less expensive to call a tow truck or a friend to tow you. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to carry some sand or dirt in the trunk either for added traction in sticky situations.

Keep your car clean during the winter also:

Most people don’t like to wash their cars during the winter months. By the amount of dirty cars on the road during winter, one has no choice but to get that impression. Why wash it when it will get dirty straight away, right?

This is a bad misconception because it’s quite the opposite. In a lot of ways it’s far more important, as it’s exactly all that road grime and slush mixed with ice and salt that causes all your cars rust. The most corrosion happens when temperatures rise above and below freezing repetitiously.

So try to rinse your car’s undercarriage and hard to reach areas as often as possible as to avoid rust. So if the weather is above freezing, take the time to pamper your car a little and give it a wash, it will add years of driving pleasure to your car.

Storing your car long term:

If you won’t be using your car for extended periods, It could be a good idea to store it and keep it safe from unwanted damage whilst not in use.

Keep the fuel tank filled to reduce the risk of condensation. If using fuel additives, drive the car around for a little to mix it evenly.

When washing your car, wax it also to protect the paint finish.

Using a drop cloth on your garage floor will act as a vapor barrier.

Avoid brake corrosion by disengaging you hand brake.

Alleviate the wheels and suspension by putting your car on jack stands.

Avoid draining your battery by placing it on a trickle type charger to keep it powered up.

Plug up your exhaust pipe to keep moist air from entering it during long periods of storage.

Brian’s insight into this car

Mazda 2 is quite a roomy and reliable car. It has sharp and precise steering, and is quite pleasant to drive. Unlike the Mazda 3, which I think is a very bad car, Mazda 2 is a great supermini. It is quite roomy, the rear seats can be fine tuned to accommodate three adult people. It will not of course be as comfortable as a limousine, but again, for It’s size and class the space is more than enough.
