Your number one resolution for the New Year: Stick to a schedule of auto care in the New Orleans-Metairie area.
Where will you be at midnight? With the crowds at the Crescent City Countdown or one of the other events that show why New Orleans is known as a partying town (laissez les bon temps roulez)? Perhaps you’re going to a friend’s for a party or even staying snuggled in your home to sleep through the whole thing.
No matter how you’re choosing to celebrate (or not), you are likely doing what most of us do, making resolutions designed to improve your life in the coming year. Lose weight. Get in shape. Save more money. But again, if you’re like most of us, those resolutions don’t last out the month, muchless the year.
But here’s a resolution that can save you money and that’s pretty easy to keep: Establish an auto care schedule and stick to it. Keeping up with regular oil changes, tire checks and engine care not only will make your car last longer, it will help you avoid major repairs by catching issues before they become major. And, a well-maintained car has a higher trade-in value.
“The secret is that there is no real secret to getting a vehicle to last a long time,” Kelley Blue Book says. “The difference is maintenance. Regular fluid checks and an almost pious dedication to scheduled lubrication will keep the powertrain going strong. What kind of oil, brake fluid, and grease used is just as important as when it is changed. The best oil in the world will do your engine no good if you never change it.”
Is it any wonder that regular car care should be high on your list of resolutions? And, we at Twin Tire and Auto Care make those savings even better with our Loyalty Program that credits you with one mile/point for every $2 you spend with us. The miles/points can be applied to airline miles, hotel points and gift cards. Even better, for the next month, we’re offering a $25 gift certificate for you to use whatever way you want (except on a conventional oil change). It’s good for service at any of our Twin Tire locations. You have until Jan. 31 to use it and it can’t be combined with any other offer.
Is it any wonder that auto care should be number one on your list of resolutions?
