Owning a vehicle is a big responsibility. Take the opportunity to become a better vehicle owner during the new year. This post by Oilrich in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York, has some ideas on New Year's resolutions you should keep.


The new year is upon us, and it's safe to say that everybody wants this to be a good, safe, and healthy year. However, this won't happen by chance: you need to take action to bring about positive change in your life. And that's what New Year's resolutions are about: thinking back on your life and setting goals for areas you'd like to improve.

For example, if you own a vehicle, there may be some areas that you could change up to become an even better vehicle owner. For ideas on what New Year's resolutions you could keep to improve in this area, continue reading the post below.

Make this the year in which you take better care of your vehicle. Call Oilrich at (203) 592-7113 or visit AMSOIL's online shop to find the top-quality products for your vehicle's maintenance, including the most effective synthetic oil in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York.

Vehicular New Year's Resolutions to Follow

Maintain Your Vehicle as Clean as Possible

A first New Year's resolution that could be easy to keep is to make an effort to have a clean vehicle. A dirty vehicle can not only be detrimental to your vehicle's appearance, but it can also affect its value, its performance, its lifespan, your safety, and even your health.

When you let a vehicle remain dirty, you allow microbes to grow on it, making you sick. Moreover, dust particles accumulate on your vehicle's inner systems, making it harder for them to perform appropriately. With time and use, the filth will eat away at the components, causing issues with their performance and shortening their lifespan.

To keep your vehicle clean, pretty, and working effectively during the new year, wash and wax it every so often.

Keep Up with the Synthetic Oil Changes

If taking good care of your vehicle is one of your New Year's resolutions, then you should be keeping up with the engine's synthetic oil changes.

The synthetic oil provides protection and lubrication, helping your engine perform smoothly and remain in top condition for longer. However, synthetic oil can become ineffective, which is why you need to change it with regularity (around twice a year, depending on the vehicle's condition and use).

Make sure that you maintain your vehicle's most important component, the engine, perfectly with the necessary synthetic oil changes during the new year.

If your engine is due a synthetic oil change, the continued use of AMSOIL's Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil, the top synthetic oil in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York, can keep it strong and in mint shape for a long time.

Drive Your Vehicle More Consciously

One New Year's resolution that can save you money, help your vehicle's maintenance, and keep you safe is to drive your vehicle more consciously.

If you're careless behind the wheel, and you're constantly speeding, braking, hitting the curb, taking sharp turns, and generally being reckless, then you should stop. When you do that, you put your and other people's safety at risk, you end up wasting more fuel and money, and you accelerate the vehicle's wear and tear process.

To avoid all of that trouble, drive gently, at a steadier pace, and always follow traffic signs. Also, use your common sense to avoid getting into dangerous situations.

Pay More Attention to Your Vehicle

Finally, you could keep a more general New Year's resolution to become a better vehicle owner, and that is to pay more attention to your vehicle.

This includes being more aware of your vehicle, how it works, and how the components are doing. This way, you will spot any issues early on, which will give you a chance to fix them before they become a bigger, more expensive, more hazardous, and more annoying problem.

Paying more attention to your vehicle should also include taking it to a mechanic on a regular basis. Of course, you should take it in if there's a problem, but you should also go in for routine inspections. They will be able to assess its condition and provide fine-tuning to keep it in top working shape.

Maintaining your vehicle should be a priority during the upcoming year if you want it to stay strong, healthy, and safe. Call Oilrich at (203) 592-7113 or visit AMSOIL's online shop for the best products for it, including the top synthetic oil in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York.
