Taking better care of your current car may make much more sense in the long run-helping you achieve a goal of financial freedom. It was once a huge red flag and meant the car was probably worn out, but thanks to improvements in car design and maintenance, the milestone of 100,000 miles now means something very different. Although some cars are ready for trade-in at that threshold, most others can travel over twice as far without major repairs. What allows one car to pass the 100,000-mile barrier with few repair bills, while another is ready for the junkyard? It's all about preventive medicine. The key to keeping your car running smoothly is probably tucked in your glove compartment. The owner's manual, most vehicles have a maintenance schedule in the manual that runs well over 100,000 miles. Some newer cars may have the maintenance schedule built into an internal computer.
Keeping your car young can also be associated by being less aggressive while driving. Aggresive driving can lower gas mileage by as much as 33 percent on the highway and 5 percent on city streets, which results in 10 to 66 cents per gallon. If you fill your tank up once a week, you might save an average of $500 per year.
Emergencies can happen - Even the most meticulously maintained vehicle can develop problems on the road, especially during inclement weather. That's when it pays to be prepared for an emergency. Pack items that would be needed if you were stranded for a several hours: A cell phone w/ a car charger, Ice scraper windshield de-icer, flashlight, whisk broom, properly inflated spare tire, blanket, extra clothes, candle/matches, bottled water, snacks and needed medication.
