4 Tips to Get the Most Out of Your Colorado Honda

colorado springs honda dealershipYour local Colorado Springs Honda dealer – Freedom Honda – knows that you can’t always control ownership costs such as fuel, repairs and insurance rates. But one thing you do have power over is making your car last longer and maintaining its value. I mean, that’s why you bought a Honda, right? While Hondas are known for their long-term reliability, here are four additional tips to help you get the most miles out of your Colorado Springs Honda

1.       Get Regular Checkups. Find a repair shop and mechanic you trust, and let that shop service your car all the time. When you get sick you don’t go to a different doctor every time, your doctor knows you from top to bottom, inside and out.  A good mechanic will get to know your car and look over it the same way.

2.       Drive Smarter. The way you drive has an effect on how long your car — and your gas — will last. You not only save wear and tear by having good driving habits, but also fuel. Taking off fast and coming to a stop quickly can be bad on a car and affect the engine, the brakes and more.

3.       Keep It Cool. Maintaining your car’s cooling system and the proper coolant level is as important as making sure the engine is well lubed and can potentially save you thousands of dollars in repairs. A cooling system failure can result in your engine literally melting down.

4.       Breathe Easier. Even the most mechanically challenged drivers know to change a car’s oil and oil filter on a regular basis — even if they don’t always do it. But other fluids and filters also need regular maintenance. For example, changing your air filter helps your car breathe easier and the engine last longer. If your air filter is clogged, your engine is not performing properly. It also hurts your fuel economy, and it can harm the engine over the long term.

Fortunately, the service department at Freedom Honda specializes in taking care of your cars to make sure that they have a very long, very happy and very healthy life. If your Honda is overdue for a service, click here to make your next appointment.

4 Overlooked Car Maintenance Services

Freedom Honda

It happens – we get busy or lazy or just plain forget to have certain maintenance services completed on our vehicles. While it’s natural for certain things to be overlooked, there are a few things that you should not neglect when it comes to keeping your car in tip-top shape.

Gimme a brake. Actually – give YOURSELF a break and make sure that you have your brake system flushed with new brake fluid every two years. Unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to tell if your brake fluid has absorbed moisture – essentially ruining your brakes – until it is too late. That’s why you should schedule a service appointment with Freedom Honda for a brake flush every two years.

Filters aren’t just for Instagram. Trust us, we know it’s a natural habit for consumers to “just say no” to additional services when they bring their cars in for an oil change or alignment. But when our Colorado Springs Honda service department lets you now that you are in need of a new air or fuel filter, it’s for your car’s benefit, not for ours.

Watch the time. Typically, timing belts should be replaced around the 75,000 mile mark, depending on your make and model. The timing belt is an important component of the engine – don’t make your engine sad by neglecting its friend.

Keep your cool. Is your car’s thermometer functioning correctly? It could be the difference of your car over- or under-heating. Be sure to have the antifreeze or coolant replaced every two years and also have the Freedom Honda team test your gauges.

Want to keep your Honda running as long as possible? A little preventative maintenance definitely goes a long way – make your service appointment for your car’s overdue maintenance today at your local Colorado Springs Honda dealer – Freedom Honda.
