Drivers shopping for used cars here at I.G. Burton Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM of Milford usually have some questions. One thing that many people wonder is whether or not a used car will last for a long time.

In many cases, the pre-owned vehicle you buy from our dealership can have a long life ahead of it, especially if you keep these things in mind.

Proper Car Care is Important

If you want your used car to last for a long time, taking proper care of your car is key. That means frequent trips to our Chrysler service center and making sure that you get the replacement parts and maintenance that you need, when you need them. Putting off service can result in expensive damage that shortens the life of your vehicle.

Good Driving Habits Help

Driving safely can also help your used car last longer. Obviously safe driving habits can reduce your chances of getting into an accident that could dramatically shorten the life of your vehicle, but driving safely can also put less stress on the various parts and systems that keep your car running smoothly. Avoiding behavior like speeding and stopping short can help protect your brakes, suspension, and various other components.

A Certified Pre-Owned Car Could Be a Good Choice

If you really want a used car that lasts a long time, look into our Certified Pre-Owned program. These cars are from recent model years and each one has passed a rigorous inspection. Many of them come with vehicle history reports as well, which means that you can pick out a car with a clean history and a long life ahead of it.
