improve used car gas mileage

If there are three constants in life, they are death, taxes, and the fact that it seems to be impossible to find consistently low-priced gas.

While gas prices aren’t at the record highs of 2012 they are trending up from the lows we saw in 2016 into a steady, wallet-destroying climb. The bad news is, there isn’t much we can do about fluctuating oil prices.

The good news is that we can give you some solid tips on how you can get the most mileage from your used car on each fill-up.

Going a little faster to get where you are going in the quickest possible time seems like a solid gas saving tip, but it doesn’t quite work like that.

A regular vehicle maintenance routine can help you catch problems early on instead of paying more money to fix them when they’ve become a significant issue. Plus, regular maintenance can keep your vehicle in top shape, extend its life, and give you the confidence to perform basic updates and repairs yourself.

The more you know about your car and how everything works together, the better. Grab a calendar and write down these crucial maintenance tasks to take on:

Oil and Fluids

Checking your oil and other fluids should become a part of a monthly car care routine. It only takes a few minutes, but those few minutes can translate into a lasting life for your vehicle.

Most vehicles now come with a monitor that tells you how much oil life you have left. It’s still a good idea to follow the recommendations in your owner’s manual. Most manufacturers recommend getting your oil changed every 3 [...]

College is a time for you to be getting out into the world and exploring it on your own, but it is hard to do that when you don’t have your own set of wheels. Getting those wheels while in college can be a bit of a challenge, however.

The average new car bought in the US costs a hefty $32,000 and a mid-range sedan will set you back $22,000, even without all the bells and whistles.

This means that, for most students, getting a new car is out of the question and buying a used car is more practical. Unless you are getting a lot of help from your family, you can also probably discount getting a shiny new sports car or SUV as well.

So, if you are setting out into higher education and you want a car to broaden your horizons, without breaking the bank, what are your options?

Buying Used

The [...]

Buying a used car is the right choice for many, but warranties on used vehicles can be confusing. Unlike new cars, used cars usually don’t have as long of a protection period for things that might go wrong. Here’s what you need to know about the warranty on the used car you’re looking to purchase and how to best protect yourself and your investment.

Used Car Warranty Vs. New Car Warranty

The warranty you get for your used car depends on how old it is. If you’re buying a vehicle that’s only a year or two old, you may still have some of the original warranty left depending on your date of purchase, and you might be presented with the option to buy an extended warranty.

However, vehicles that are past the point of coverage under the original manufacturer’s warranty might have a different, not as extensive warranty placed on it by the manufacturer or [...]
