There’s nothing like getting behind the wheel of a new Hyundai. The new car smell, optimal performance, and world-class comfort combine to give you a driving experience you will never forget. Unfortunately, failing to maintain your Hyundai properly could end the honeymoon quicker that you might have expected. Here are some tips on how to avoid common maintenance mistakes as you enjoy driving your new Hyundai.
Pay Attention to Your Tires
The quality and condition of your tires has a dramatic effect on your new car’s performance. When your tires are well-inflated, your car’s handling improves, it becomes safer to drive, and you will experience better fuel efficiency. On the other hand, if you fail to monitor air pressure, you run an increased chance of a puncture. Furthermore, poorly inflated tires lead to sloppy handling, which could pose a safety risk on some roads and during inclement weather.
Change Your Car’s Oil Regularly
Regardless of how new your car might be, engine oil is still the lifeblood of an engine. Oil helps your car work smoothly by lubricating its moving parts and preventing excessive friction. When oil becomes old, it loses viscosity and can sometimes leak into other parts of your engine. In order to avoid these problems and keep your engine working well, make sure to change your oil at least once every three months.
The maintenance tips listed above are just a small sample of the maintenance tasks necessary for a new car. By following a few simple steps, you can prolong your new car’s fresh-off-the-lot feel and prevent expensive maintenance problems.
