The holiday season is winding down and everyone is preparing to make 2020 the best year ever for themselves and their loved ones. If you are a Prius owner, you probably consider your vehicle in your list of loved ones. While you are making your list of New Year’s Resolutions this year, the team at Luscious Garage wants you to consider adding these car care and driving habit resolutions to your list.
Don’t Drive Distracted
Not only is cell phone use while driving illegal in California, but it also puts you and other drivers at risk. Take advantage of the Bluetooth function in your Prius and keep your phone out of your hands. We also recommend that you avoid eating while you drive and choosing your playlist before you start driving. The more time you spend with two hands on the wheel and two eyes on the road, the safer your ride will be.
Show Your Prius Some Love
You are proud of your Prius so you should keep it running and looking its best. Wash your Prius on a regular basis to keep it looking shiny and beautiful. Don’t forget about the interior! Clean out your car once a week, vacuum and spot check the upholstery and carpet, and wipe down your dashboard area.
Keep your Prius running smoothly by staying on top of your service and maintenance schedule. At Luscious Garage we are experts in the care and maintenance of hybrid vehicles. Whether you need an oil change or are experiencing a more complicated issue, we will give your Prius the time and attention it deserves.
Avoid Road Rage
Oh, road rage. We are all guilty of it. This year when you become frustrated with other drivers or traffic, avoid the temptation to let that frustration elevate to road rage status. Laying on the horn, shouting, and cursing won’t change the fact that a minivan just cut you off or that you are stuck behind a slow driver.
Brush Up on Traffic Laws
Driving is second nature for most of us, but many people have forgotten the traffic laws we all had to memorize to pass the written driving test. This year refresh yourself on how four-way stops work, proper lane use, and what to do in the case of a broken traffic light.
Luscious Garage wants to wish you and your loved ones a happy, peaceful, and prosperous new year. If you are in need of Prius service or repair, give us a call to make an appointment.
