I’m always looking for information on extending the life of my car, but after finding an article on Reader’s Digest called “74 Tips to Extend the Life of Your Car”, I’m sure my car is going to fall apart at any minute. Because I don’t think I follow any of the tips. A few of my favorites? Keep an auto log. Don’t go over 55 m.p.h. for the first 1,000 miles on a new car. Warm the engine. Don’t turn the wheel to the extreme right and left. Avoid driving at high speeds or accelerating quickly.
