Of course you wouldn’t want to have scratches all over your car accruing from rough driving and hits from other road users.
You want to ensure you drive carefully always, using the three mirrors available in your car – the two side mirrors and the rear mirror inside the cabin, to avoid any learner driver bashing you and also to be in control and see what’s going on at your left and right sides, and at your back too. You obviously get a wide view of your front which is the easiest view for drivers.
However, owning and driving a car – whether luxurious or supercars especially in an elite society does not guarantee your car would last, or that you would not have scratches, or that you wouldn’t end up bashing it somewhere. It all depends on how you use and maintain it. Thus, the following tips are necessary for a longer lasting vehicle and value for your money – or as some people may imply, your investment!
So if you accelerate or rev up too quickly, it senses a rapid movement and rotation of the engine, and therefore allows for more fuel into the engine than normal. Also, revving the engine too high can damage the oxygen sensor and lead to constant fuel wastage. Accelerating gently when driving within streets saves more fuel as the device injects fuel based on the gradual movement of the vehicle. So when driving, step gently on the accelerator and let the car gear up by itself as an automatic car.
When driving on the road, ensure to utilize the mirrors for defensive driving and avoiding dents and scratches to your vehicle either from objects or from other drivers.
