As 2018 begins, many Americans set goals to improve their lives. One thing that most of us do every day is drive our cars, so a good way to improve your life is to improve your car. Here are some New Year’s resolutions for your car that should make 2018 even better.

  • Make maintenance a habit. You should plan one day a month to spend some time taking care of your car. This should include checking your tire pressure, regular washes, and checking fluid levels.
  • Get new wiper blades. Every six to 12 months, you should get new windshield wiper blades. If they are leaving streaks or stuttering, this is a good sign they should be replaced.
  • Don’t ignore minor problems. If you are having starting issues or other minor car problems, they could quickly become major ones if you ignore the problem.
  • Catch up on routine maintenance. Read through your owner’s manual to find the recommended maintenance schedule. If you have fallen behind on any routine checks, get your car back on schedule.
  • Shop for safety. If you are planning on getting a new car this year, make safety features a priority.
