Easy Ways to Improve Your Driving Habits in the New Year

The new year is here, and if you’re looking for some easy-to-keep resolutions, Texas Auto Center has you covered! We’ve put together a list of some simple steps you can take in 2021 to stay safe and improve the life of your vehicle.

Improve Your Driving in 2021 Stay on Top of Your Maintenance

The new year is a great time to start forming better vehicle maintenance habits. This one is super easy because Texas Auto Center can take care of everything! Just bring your ride into our advanced service center and our technicians will give it a top-to-bottom checkup. We can change your oil, replace your filters, and check your brake pads to ensure you start 2021 on the right foot. From there, just follow your manufacturer recommended maintenance schedule. It’s that easy.

Focus on the Road

According to NHTSA, more than 1,000 people are injured daily in accidents involving distracted drivers. The best way to avoid this situation is to keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road. One of the biggest contributors to distracted driving is cell phones. You should always avoid texting or navigating phone apps while driving, and if you really want to stay safe we recommend you avoid making phone calls as well. Luckily, we have a number of vehicles with hands-free Bluetooth, so if you’re looking to upgrade your safety come see us!

Keep it Clean

You wouldn’t believe the difference that a clean car makes. Studies have shown that living and working in clean environments reduces stress and can even provide positive health benefits, and the same goes for your car. One of the simplest and most effective things you can do is keep a small wastebasket in your vehicle and empty it once a week. This takes very little time and can dramatically reduce the amount of clutter collecting in your car. We also recommend washing your vehicle at least once a month, ideally once a week. This will keep your car looking its best and remove irritants that can damage the exterior. Remember, a clean car is a happy car!
