If you’ve shopped for a car recently, you might have discovered that the new and used car inventory is low and sticker prices are high. The wheels in your home parking lot might look more attractive.

Advice from Brookline’s car and tire experts:
Used cars have much higher value than ever before. As a result of the higher value, car owners invest in maintaining their cars to keep them a little longer. Those who have leased cars should check the residual value at the end of the lease because this is the right time to buy your leased car.
It’s important to protect the surfaces of your car from harmful elements of New England weather with routine maintenance like regular washing and waxing. The pandemic has created obstacles with purchasing new cars but regular maintenance like car washing can increase the life of existing cars and improve the value at trade-in time.
To keep your car in top performance longer, just follow a few basic preventative maintenance steps. Get regular oil changes, rotate your tires regularly and have your alignment checked. A small investment now prevents a potentially huge one later.
Safety should be a top priority when extending the life of your vehicle. Keeping up with regular maintenance and driving on a safe set of tires will not only get you more mileage, but also save you money – up to $400 in gas with proper tire care. Consumers can now buy and schedule maintenance from local dealers online for maximum convenience.
