For many people, used cars are the way to go. They’re less expensive while still being reliable, comfortable, and safe. At Bakersfield Mitsubishi we have lots of great used options that will serve you well for a long time, as long as you follow these steps to maintain your used Mitsubishi.
There are a few elements of your car’s well-being that you should be aware of on a regular basis. One of these is your vehicle’s tires, which should always be inflated to the proper PSI for maximum performance and gas mileage. Every time you stop for gas, get in the habit of checking your tires, and making sure that they have deep and evenly worn tread.
Various outside elements, like road salt in the winter, can build up on your car and cause corrosion. Stop at a car wash every month or two to wash the exterior of your car well. Applying wax a few times a year will also help protect your Mitsubishi’s exterior and keep it looking new.
Your Mitsubishi will need an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or so. Each time you take your car in for an oil change, have the mechanic do a onceover to check things like your fluids, your belts, and your battery. Staying on top of your Mitsubishi and the repairs it needs will keep your car running smoothly for a long time.
