September 19th, 2017 443 Auto Sales

Mileage In the old days, a car that made it to 200,000 miles was a rarity, but today it’s very possible and probable thanks to industry/technological improvements.

What are some ways to ensure your vehicle gets the most miles possible?

Tips to Maximize Your Vehicle’s Miles Output

For starters, check research to figure out which models last longest. There’s plenty of online reporting and advice that’ll tell you what the most reliable models are. If you don’t have time to do that, then here are some great ones to buy: Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Toyota Prius, Honda CR-V, Toyota Sienna, Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, and the Ford F-150.

Next, consider preventative maintenance as well as scheduled maintenance in order to keep the vehicle in its best condition. This means having the oil and filter changed as needed, having tires rotated, and replacing belts before they break. Some people treat their cars like they treat their teeth. There are those who get twice a year check-ups and those who… don’t. Guess which ones have the best teeth/cars? Also, show your vehicle some TLC; get it washed and waxed regularly. Have tire alignments done. Use the right kind of gas for what the engine requires.

If and when there’s work to be done and a mechanic offers to use different priced parts, don’t get the cheapest ones. You do get what you pay for, after all, so it’s better to invest a little more money into repair/replacement parts that are of higher quality and more durable if you want to get the most miles out of your vehicle.

For those of you who have a vehicle that’s nearing the end of its “safe life,” and the mileage is “way up there,” consider getting rid of it when the rust is so bad that the structural integrity is compromised and/or a repair needs to be done that costs more than the vehicle is worth.
