Your car or truck is your home away from home. In the days of the western frontier, stealing a horse could be punishable by death. That puts things into perspective and shows how important your vehicle is. So you want it to run as smoothly as possible for as long as possible. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of the most important tips for getting your vehicle past the 200,000-mile mark.
Bringing your vehicle in for regular inspections and service is the best way to stop major problems before they happen and avoid downtime as well as expensive repairs.

If you’re making a lot of one or two block trips, that is hard on your car and unnecessary. It’s better for your health, and your vehicle’s, to walk those little trips.
Almost every modern car will take synthetic oil. It lasts longer, works better, and does a better job. Unless your mechanic advises against it, synthetic is best.
Most transmissions will never need to be flushed and changed. But some do. It’s best to have your transmission checked- just to be safe.
