A new year is the perfect opportunity to start some new good habits, and what better place to start than with your car? Read on for five New Year’s Motoring Resolutions you could pick up today.
Give your car some much needed TLC
A car is like a good friend. Look after it, and it will look after you.
With that in mind, spend some time this year making sure your vehicle is in tip-top shape for the long journeys ahead.
Cleaning your car, for example, makes it look fresh and new, but make sure you check the vitals, too. Ensuring engine oil is topped up and tyre pressures are at the correct level can even save you fuel and money in the long run!
If you’re not sure everything’s up to scratch – we offer free vehicle health checks for all makes and models.
Leave extra time for your journeys
Log into your favourite mapping app, type in your destination, and boom, you’re presented with a route and an estimated journey time. How handy!
But as with all technology, it’s still worth having some mental input yourself. Can that mapping software anticipate delays from emergency roadworks? Or a minor accident on the A-road that causes some rubber-necking?
Give yourself a better chance of arriving on time and leave an extra fifteen minutes early. It isn’t really fashionable to be late anyway, is it?

Be kind on the roads
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” That’s how it goes, isn’t it?
A little bit of kindness goes a long way in all aspects of life, and the roads are one place where we could all benefit from a bit more of it.
Is someone waiting at that junction up ahead? Slow down, give them a wave, and let them out.
Did that driver just pull a bit of a silly move on the roundabout? Take a breath, we’ve all been there.
There’s a learner driver up ahead going 5mph below the speed limit. Annoying, sure, but it’s not the end of the world, is it?
Check the weather before you leave
We all love to chat about the weather, so make it your mission to be the person in the know and check the forecast before you leave the house. That way, you can make sure you’re prepared for whatever driving conditions you might encounter.
You’ll also know whether to take sunscreen or an umbrella with you – or knowing the English weather, maybe both!
New car for the New Year
What better way to ring in 2019 than investing in a new set of wheels? Maybe it’s time for something more environmentally-responsible, or maybe it’s just time to treat yourself to an upgrade!
