Purchasing a pre-owned vehicle is an excellent way to avoid rapid depreciation and get the most bang for your buck, but it can also cause you to worry about your vehicle’s reliability. Lucky for you, Evansville Kia has some tips to help you keep your pre-owned vehicle in excellent shape.


Drive Safely

The simplest way to keep your vehicle in excellent working condition is to treat it with care. It might be tempting at times to gun the accelerator or shift gears like a drag racer, but those reckless actions can cause irreparable damage to your vehicle. Irresponsible driving not only causes wear and tear on your vehicle, but can also lead to accidents that could leave you without a vehicle altogether. Although driving carefully isn’t quite as fun as the alternative, it can spare you the headache of replacing a car prematurely.


Regular Check-Ups

Just like people, cars also need regular check-ups to make sure they’re in peak condition. Bring your vehicle in to Evansville Kia for its scheduled maintenance as described in your owner’s manual. When you bring your vehicle in for an oil change, tire rotation, or brake check, our expert technicians will also complete a thorough inspection of your vehicle and alert you of any potential problems. Your maintenance appointments are also an excellent time to bring up any concerns you have about your vehicle to an experienced mechanic.


Interim Maintenance

In addition to big milestone maintenance services at the dealership, there are also a number of little ways you can take care of your vehicle at home. At least once a month, make a point to inspect and top off your vehicle’s fluid levels. While you are making sure your pre-owned vehicle’s fluids are at their appropriate levels, you can also check your tire pressure and tread. If your tire pressure is low or your tire tread is wearing unevenly, bring your vehicle in to Evansville Kia so we can fill and rotate your tires.
