A new study is reporting that Americans are planning to hold onto their cars even longer than before, and it’s not just because of the rotten economy.
Warranties, better reliability, and better quality are all doing their part. That doesn’t mean, however, that you should forget that as the years go on your car’s MPG stays the same. Wear and tear take their toll, and proper maintenance is key to getting the most out of your high-mileage car.
But why stop there? Why limit your self to the efficiency your car got off the showroom floor? There are plenty of great and inexpensive tools out there to get even more mileage for your money, even if your car has lost that new-car smell.
