From monthly payments to repairs to insurance and fuel costs, there’s no denying that car ownership in Beaverton, Oregon, can get expensive. If you’re looking to reduce vehicle expenses in 2022, these tips are a great place to start.
Get the service you need
Keeping up with service for your vehicle might not seem like a savings strategy, but it can really pay off in the long run. Getting regular oil changes and tire rotations, new filters, and other scheduled maintenance at CARR Subaru in Beaverton will keep your vehicle running smoothly for more years, improve its efficiency, and prevent expensive breakdowns.
Save money on fuel
If you do a lot of driving, gas costs are sure to take a big bite out of your budget. To fight back, try easing up — following the speed limit, accelerating more gently, and braking more gradually will help your vehicle consume less fuel. Other efficiency-improving strategies include carpooling to work, eliminating unnecessary trips, and making sure your tires stay inflated at the recommended level.
Revisit your insurance coverage
In 2022, you may be able to save money by reviewing your auto insurance coverage. Shop around online to find out if other insurers offer more favorable rates. If you’d prefer to stick with your current insurer, make sure you’re not paying for more coverage than you need — and check to see if there are any discounts you’re missing out on.
From the entire team here at CARR Subaru, we wish you a Happy New Year and a 2022 filled with savings on your vehicle expenses!
