9 Easy Things You Can Do to Increase Your Car's Life
Car dealers are enjoying robust sales in 2014, riding a half-decade wave of rebounding business as Americans recover from the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. Yet, the average age of a vehicle on U.S. roads continues to increase, and today’s car buyers are extending loan terms beyond 72 months in record numbers.
Evidence also shows that people are keeping their cars longer than ever, and with loans up to 84 months long becoming a “new normal,” millions of people won’t have any choice but to drive whatever they’re buying today for most of the decade ahead. Taken together, the aging vehicle population and extended new-car loan terms mean it is more important than ever to take the best possible care of your vehicle in order to increase your car’s life.
