2. Actually service it!
Just like us humans that need a treat every now and then, you car needs some love of its own too. Pay a couple of hundred bucks and get your car serviced every year, or at least every two years.
Fresh oil and a health check will go a long way to preserving your vehicle. Remember the old saying? Look after your car and it will look after you.
Keep it clean and looking good. Take pride in your ride!
3. Park in a garage when possible!

Statistics show that garaged cars have bodywork that lasts 5 years longer than that of cars that live outside all year round.
