What do you do when you get your tax return? Though it may be tempting, try not to spend it too frivolously. In fact, you can put your tax returns toward something important—your car—right here at Mountaineer Mitsubishi.
One of the best ways to spend your tax return on your car is to pay for some serious car service. Proper vehicle maintenance is what keeps your car running safely and smoothly for years to come. Our service department will be happy to help.
We also offer original Mitsubishi parts and accessories. Aftermarket parts may sometimes be cheaper, but they certainly are not as reliable. Plus, our OEM parts frequently come with a valuable warranty.
Or, consider switching up your vehicle entirely! You can trade in your old model and get a huge discount on a lease. You’ll be cruising in style this spring behind the wheel of a brand new Mitsubishi model.
And lastly, while you’re at it, consider buying a new vehicle entirely. In the long run, this is the cheapest option. Initial payments may be high, but eventually, the payments will stop entirely, and the vehicle will be all yours.
If you would like to utilize your tax return in a manner that’s impossible to regret, come visit us here at Mountaineer Mitsubishi.
Winter is tough on our cars. Let’s not add to that stress by making silly (rookie) mistakes. Here are five things you can do to increase your car’s resale value, keep it in better shape for longer, and reduce maintenance costs along the way.
Start your car, and go.
No need to let it idle. Today’s cars are designed specifically so you don’t need to idle. If you leave your car idling for more than a few minutes, buildup can begin developing on your spark plugs, making them less efficient and will eventually waste gas.
Check your tires often.
Be sure to check your tire pressure and tread regularly. Tires that are too worn or improperly inflated can cause alignment issues and ultimately cause your car to drive less efficiently. In a worst-case scenario, your tires could blow out on the highway – a dangerous situation for you and those driving near you.
Go the speed limit.
Besides being the law, going the speed limit is actually good for your car. Crazy, right? Going too fast means that you’re more likely to hit your brakes hard, fast, and abruptly which wears your brake pads and tire tread more quickly.
Avoid riding the brake.
Just like slamming on the brakes often is tough on your car, so is riding them. Doing this also wears your brakes down for no good reason (and it’s annoying for those of us following behind you).
Park in the shade.
Allowing your car to bake in the sun too often will lead to discoloration and cracks in materials. If you can’t park in a garage or in the shade, invest in a set of sunshades to protect the interior of your car.
