Six Ways To Kill Your Car by AutoReportNG: 11:19am On Nov 14
Having a car at times may be an achievement, to some, its a way to brag or to show off that they have arrived, to others it's all about mobility and to ease their day to day activities either at work or at home while to some set of individuals it's all about comfort, luxury and the show of opulence that is why you see someone buying a car of about 50million naira in Nigeria.

No matter how good or the specs of your car either it is a 1976 car or the latest range of beast the world has ever seen if there are no adequate maintenance or a specialist that is good in fixing its problem, it is as good as a trash or a junk hill. The following are six things that many motorists do that can harm their car and their wallet.

Ignoring the check engine light.
Ignoring an illuminated check engine light can result in serious engine trouble and costly repairs. At the very least, this warning light could alert you to an engine problem that is negatively impacting fuel economy.

Failing to change fluids and filters.
Many fluids are required for the operation and protection of vehicle systems and components. Checking fluid levels regularly, along with the filters, helps ensure that your vehicle runs dependably and extends vehicle life.

Neglecting your tires.
Your vehicle’s tires should be checked frequently for inflation and tread depth. Underinflated tires can wear out more quickly, needing to be replaced sooner, and can negatively impact safety, gas mileage and performance.

Not following a service schedule.
Because many car parts and components wear out or become damaged over time, vehicles need to be routinely serviced in order to perform optimally. Routine inspections and timely repairs will help keep your car running efficiently and will help you avoid more expensive repairs down the road.

Keeping a dirty car.
Allowing your car to go too long without a wash leads to a buildup of damaging chemicals and dirt, increases the potential for rust from road salt and interferes with proper visibility needed for safe driving.

Being a severe driver.
Whether it’s stop-and-go traffic, extreme weather, rough roads or heavy loads, it can sometimes be difficult to limit severe driving conditions. However, you can drive smart and improve fuel economy by observing the speed limit; avoiding aggressive driving, including quick starts and stops; not hauling unnecessary items; and keeping your vehicle properly tuned, not even with danfo drivers.

Dragging right of way with Danfo

When you feel like you know how to speak english and you are a lawyer or have a uniform man as husband or brother, you now saw a danfo driver signal with hand but decide to ignore him because you know how to speak queens english, sorry is your case, he would scratch your car, dent it and drag your bumper along with him and the only thing you will receive is "you sef for no follow the man drag grin and all his passenger will blame you because you left your mother tongue and confusing them with oyinbo tongue"

Get it scanned; you need to run a diagnosis check on the car.
