What are some basic car maintenance tips for beginners?
I just bought my first car, and I want to make sure it stays in great condition. What are some maintenance tips I should know about?
Good for you for wanting to keep your car in such good shape! A great tip to start off with is to follow a basic maintenance schedule.
A basic maintenance schedule should keep your car in good consistent shape, while also catching any larger issues before they develop. To keep it in good shape while driving, make sure to change the oil every 5,000 miles and avoid driving aggressively.
Another tip that’s more for safety precautions is to buy the right level of car insurance. Higher coverage levels can protect both you and your car, and can make sure you’re covered for any unexpected eventuality.
To do this easily, check out the Jerry app. We’ll get you customized quotes from top providers, so that all you need to do is pick the plan that works best for you. And once you’ve chosen one, we’ll even help you switch!
Best of luck with keeping your car in shape!
