Regular preventive care, especially regular oil changes, will help keep your car on the road for many years.
According to a market survey released this week, drivers are hanging onto their cars for more years. The survey says that the average age of a car is 11.9 years and that was before the COVID-19 shutdown.
“As states continue stay-at-home orders and fewer workers commute each day, the industry group estimated that the average age could rise 4 to 6 months in the coming years,” according to thecarconnection.com in a report about the survey.
If you’re like many car owners, you might be wondering how you keep a car on the road and functioning without expensive repairs during that time? Do you only drive it one day a week to places like the Old Cowtown Museum? Or can you actually put mileage on a car and expect it to last?
The short answer is no, you don’t have to baby it. And, yes, you can drive for many miles. The trick is to make sure you’re gung ho about preventive care – that’s regular maintenance, especially when it comes to changing the oil.
“Wear and friction are the two leading causes of engine wear and failure; regular oil changes reduce engine wear and result in a longer lasting car engine,” according to itstillruns.com.
