Extend The Life of Your Car

These are tips from the pros on little tricks that help.
  • When shifting from drive into reverse, or vice versa, always come to a full stop. Not completing your stop can damage an automatic transmission.
  • When parking on a hill, apply the foot brake, then the parking brake, and then shift into park. Otherwise, only a tiny pin keeps your car from rolling down the hill.
  • Keep your tank full. Letting the gas tank to run dry or consistently low (less than one third full) can eventually lead to problems with the fuel filter and pump.
