Bonjour lecteurs! Any bonnes résolutions for 2023? I am yet to sit down and reflect on what 2022 brought us. We have already decided on some bits we will concentrate on as a family. Have you ever thought about doing the same for your car? After all, it’s one of the main assets after your home. It directly concerns our safety and therefore should be kept in a spick and span condition no matter what. So here are for you my Top 4 Car Resolutions For A More Efficient Car In 2023.
Seasonal Car Checks
‘Prevention is better than cure’ we say in French. Very often, people mention it in the context of health. Well, it goes the same way with your car.
After all, taking preventative action can save you a lot of money and time in the long run!
A few petits changes during each season can make a big différence. And this way, you keep on top of things and it helps your car stay in good condition.
Par exemple, make sure that air-con systems are working efficiently during the hot summer months. And in winter, it’s worth checking your tyres are properly inflated. Especially with the snow we had lately.
By eliminating potential issues before they occur and get worst, you could save up a few hundred pounds a year.
Regular MOT & Car Servicing
Oui, I know an MOT is statutory. But we often see it as an expense, when really it’s for our own benefit.
So that we can prevent bigger potential costs.
Time to schedule your MOT at Elite Direct London and secure an MOT test before your current MOT certificate expires. So that you can drive safely.
En plus, if you get caught driving without a valid MOT, you can be banned from driving and receive 3 penalty points.
On top of a big penalty of up to £2500. Book yours now.
Never Run Low On Petrol
The next one of my Car Resolutions might seem obvious but…
Is there anything worse than being on the road looking endlessly for a petrol station with the red lights beeping?
I have made this erreur once or twice in the French countryside where I did not have a clue where I was… And it was so stressful!
Did you know that if you leave your tank empty, it can potentially damage the engine and cause wear and tear on key components?
Keep an eye on the fuel meter and don’t wait until the last minute to fill up. Every time I let it go to this situation, I was struggling to find some petrol…
Learn The Essentials
Ladies, this one is for you. I don’t know about you but I think I could do with an upgrade when it’s about basic car maintenance.
Par exemple, do you know how to change a tyre? I think I would have to call Grumpy Boyfriend to the rescue 😅.
It’s also worth doing some basics like checking your levels of car fluids.
How often do you get routine oil changes and check their level? I read that a monthly checkup is necessary to avoid permanent damage to your vehicle.
Last but not least, keep up to date on rules and regulations. Especially if you go abroad.
Et voilà for my Top 4 Car Resolutions For A More Efficient Car In 2023!
What are yours? What kind of driver do you want to be in 2023?
