When you finance a new Honda at White Plains Honda, serving Yonkers, New Rochelle, Bronx and Stamford; our first bit of advice is to keep your new vehicle in tip top shape by bringing it in regularly for tune-ups by our Honda service technicians. Our employees are highly trained on how to keep a car running for the life that you own it and beyond, by using Honda parts that help keep your car on the road.

To sum it up, allowing White Plains Honda to take care of your vehicle will ensure you don’t have problems in the future. With that being said, it helps to be proactive and take some steps on your own.  We have compiled some really simple maintenance tips you can do that will give you a couple of extra miles per gallon and keep you on the road instead of at the garage.

–    Clean brake dust off regularly: As its name indicates, brake dust builds up on your wheels as a result of normal use of your braking system. Simply use a damp sponge and clean cold water to remove it.

–    Check your tire pressure regularly: As in once a week. Properly inflated tires are key to reaching your vehicle’s optimum fuel economy. Need we say more?

–    Check your tire’s tread: This can be easily done with either a tire tread gauge or a penny. If you insert the penny upside down and find that you can see all of Honest Abe’s head, your tread is too low.

White Plains Honda, located at 344 Central Ave. White Plains, NY 10606, hopes that these tips prove useful, and we invite you to stay tune for more of them in the future.
