Rev Up The Resolutions

SONY DSCIn case you’ve been in some kind of booze induced sleep since Christmas Day, you may have not realised its now 2016. The first week of a New Year is always a tough nut, especially for those looking to beat the initial hump that comes with another round of resolutions. What’s yours then? Drink less? Burp less in public? Heh… let us know!

Rather than raise the bar too high for yourself, why not set a handful of resolutions for your car?

We all have individual driving bugbears and some of those may even transpose to our own bad habits; for example, do you often forget to indicate? Take a moment to think about your time on the road recently and evaluate what irritates you… now think how much your own quirks may annoy other drivers. Anyway, before we get carried away let’s think of some resolutions you can actually apply to the vehicle itself…

  • Pipe Down the Fumes

This can be done via optimal oil changes, tyre checks and mechanical surveys. If you’re spending more at the fuel station than you’d normally expect then chances are you’re polluting more than advised!

  • Clear the Cash Crunch

It’s easy to get attached to our car but if it’s costing you more to maintain than it would to buy a more efficient vehicle then maybe it’s time to let go? Sell the car, use the money to clear any debts that it’s maintenance has caused you and then do some research into a more affordable and resilient vehicle.

  • Curve Your Road Rage

Think about your early days driving, chances are the pesky driver in front is just getting to grips with the road the same way we all once did. Be forgiving; don’t waste your energy on getting stressed out about minor inconveniences – it’s not worth it.
