When I finally got a new car a few years ago, I vowed that things would be different this time around. I decided to wash it weekly, keep the inside pristine, and remember all of the normal maintenance. Unfortunately, after a few months, my new habits started to slip. It became easier and easier to overlook new sounds, and before I knew it the car was broken. After getting things fixed, I asked a friend, who happens to be a mechanic, to teach me how to really take care of my car. He wrote out a maintenance schedule for me, and taught me how to troubleshoot new issues. Check out this blog to learn how to care for your new car.
