Fix Small Items Before They Become Big Ones

Fixing small things before they become major issues is important, for the health of your wallet as much as for the health of your vehicle. It’s much more cost effective to replace a worn belt or a fix a small crack in your windshield than it is to break down on the side of the road or have to replace an entire windshield. Taking the time to do that sooner rather than later will save you both time and money.
This is especially true for paint damage. It is much less expensive to locate and touch up paint chips on a regular basis than it is if you leave them until corrosion develops and spreads. Anything larger than chips and scratches may require refinishing, however, this is usually going to be less costly than leaving damage unaddressed and requiring costly panel replacement later.
Filter changes might seem like small issues, but neglecting them can also lead to bigger, more costly issues down the road. You should also pay careful attention to cabin filters. The filters clean the air that comes in through the ventilation system, and if left unchecked, you could experience unpleasant driving conditions, especially if you have respiratory issues or allergies. They typically need changing every 20,000-25,000 km but check your owner’s manual. Keeping up with manufacturer-recommend service intervals is another way to have a better running vehicle that will hold more of its value over time.
