Have your heart set on one of our luxury cars in Houston? We suggest following these tips from our team at Helfman Alfa Romeo of Sugar Land to ensure you can enjoy your Alfa Romeo vehicle for years to come.
Follow the Recommended Maintenance Schedule
Auto maintenance is arguably the most important way to care for your vehicle. These are a few of the maintenance tasks that your vehicle will need regularly:
- Oil change and filter replacement
- Tire rotation
- Brake pad replacement
- Replenish fluids under the hood (coolant, brake fluid, transmission fluid, etc.)
- Multi-point inspection
Keep it Clean
A clean vehicle doesn’t just look better, its condition will last longer too. If you leave a vehicle dirty for too long, the dirt and grime will start to eat away at your vehicle’s clear coat. Your body paint can even start to decay.
Drive it Carefully
We get it, it’s oh-so-tempting to let loose with all the power packed into Alfa Romeo cars and SUVs. However, frequently accelerating and decelerating can wear down your brakes and diminish your fuel efficiency. Also, naturally, driving carefully can help you avoid an accident.
Keep an Eye on Your Tires
Your tires play a crucial role in your safety on the road. It’s important to inspect them regularly to make sure the tread isn’t too low. Regular tire rotations and inspections can also help you avoid undue and uneven wear.
Keep it Protected
We know you can’t control every circumstance, but try to keep your vehicle protected as much as possible. Store it in the garage or in covered parking whenever possible. And, when you can, avoid driving in inclement weather.
