Buy the right vehicle. It all starts with finding the perfect vehicle for your needs. If you have a lengthy commute to work, you’ll likely want a more compact vehicle that is economical when it comes to fuel consumption. If your commute isn’t far and you have a sizeable family, you might consider an SUV or Van.

Find a great mechanic. Just like a doctor knows your body, a mechanic knows your vehicle. Today’s cars are basically computers on wheels, so instead of putting your trust in backyard mechanics or hobbyists, work with a specialist who you can trust with your vehicle (and your wallet!) Be sure to take your vehicle in for regular oil and fluid changes, inspections and routine maintenance.
