How to Keep your High Mileage Car Running

Our cars have made many improvements throughout the years, and it is apparent that cars can now continue to run smoothly even when they have high mileage. If your car’s mileage is over 100,000 miles, you may be a bit concerned about how much longer your vehicle will be dependable on the road. However, good car maintenance can help you extend the life of your vehicle well past the 100k mile mark. 

Here are some tips on how to keep your high mileage car running smoothly for years to follow: 

  • Choose a vehicle manufacturer that has a good track record when it comes to long lasting vehicles. Do your research before buying a car and choose an option that you will be able to get your money’s worth out of. 
  • Make sure to stay on top of your vehicle’s recommended maintenance and services. Your vehicle’s manufacturer will recommend services at specific intervals that are put into place to help upkeep your vehicle. Following these services will keep your vehicle always running at its best. 
  • Keep your vehicle clean! A vehicle that is full of junk will actually slow your car down and make it work harder to move. Keep excess debris out of your car and trying to keep it clean throughout the years to protect the overall integrity and value of your vehicle. 
  • Drive safely and smartly on the road. The more you can avoid accidents and hitting debris, the better off your car will be once it starts getting up there in mileage.
