Lately, if you've begun asking yourself "how many more miles can I really expect to get from my car", you are not alone. Today's car consumers are driving their vehicles a lot farther and are finding out that the old ideas about the limits of a car's endurance are not what they used to be.
Your car's odometer is not always a good indicator of a vehicle's continued performance. Hondas, Toyotas, and Volvos, brands, known for their durability, are being sold secondhand with as many as 200,000 miles and are still in great working order!
The key to getting the most mileage out of your car is to keep it well-maintained. Regularly scheduled oil and filter changes are a must. With every oil change, your mechanic should check your transmission fluid, and coolant levels as well the level of your brake fluids.
If there is an issue with any of these, it could be a sign of a bigger problem. Your mechanic should also be checking for wear and tear on your brakes, suspension, transmission, and exhaust system. Catching problems with these components can help to prevent costly repair bills in the future.
