Now what? Well, now it's time to enjoy your choice and take care of it so that it lasts a long time and, if you plan to sell it in the medium term, keep it as new to get the best performance at the time of making the sale.

And what can you do to keep it as new longer? If you spoil your car from the beginning, this task will be simple. You just have to pay the attention you deserve and always put it in the hands of trusted workshops when you need to undergo maintenance operations established by the manufacturer or for any other repair or replacement of wear elements such as tires, car brake rotors, and discs ...

In this sense, filming is a preliminary phase to the total enjoyment of a new vehicle and, although it seems a thing of the past, the reasons for not skipping this procedure are quite convincing as to risk not knowing how to do well the shooting of a new car.

A good shoot for a current car has little to do with those that were made before they required true manual adjustments and, even, the passage through a workshop. Now it is a matter of giving the vehicle the precise time and the ideal conditions for everything to work and fit as it is expected by the manufacturer.

What to keep in mind of your new car?

In this way, you must respect the shooting period recommended for your new car. Therefore, you should not force the engine too much in the first 1,000 to 3,000 kilometers. Thus, the new machinery will finish adjusting and the cylinders will be clean of possible impurities.

What else should I avoid in my new car?

car care tips

All this does not mean that you must maintain a constant speed, as in highway or highway. What is more, it is advisable to drive on conventional roads with less straight lines, better with curves and small slopes. And it is necessary to make trips that require speed changes, marches because maintaining a constant speed does not achieve a good acclimatization of your new car.

In this sense, you should avoid the cruise control that every time incorporate more new vehicles. Many drivers use it on long trips to carry the constant speed without going beyond what is allowed. But during the filming, it is important to avoid it, since the fact of keeping the engine at permanent revolutions can cause problems.

As for its use, it is understandable that you want to use everything you can for your new car, but be careful with this, do not go wanting to pick it up to go and look for bread around the corner. Short distances are a bad idea during the taxi period, since the engine may not heat up at all, which can cause permanent damage to the engine.

Regarding this, you must be aware that the oil plays a fundamental role in the running of an engine: the lubricant must be at its optimum operating temperature. For this to happen, the car must circulate at least 15-20 minutes. Lubrication ensures that the pieces expand as they should and thus adapt all of them.

In this way, the urban routes, but long, can be practical for the running of the marches, because these journeys require a continuous change of gears something that should not be missing in the running of a new car. Of course, always avoid acceleration and braking.

And what do I do with the load on my new car?

Many people open their new car in holiday periods, and also adds a trailer. Bad idea. Dragging a trailer requires the vehicle to give more of itself and the driver to step on the accelerator more. During the first 1,500 kilometers of the car, the best thing is not to have any element towed(caravan, pram, for dogs ...) that imposes us to step on the accelerator.

Therefore, avoid the roof racks (for bunkers, bike racks ...) and trailers in the first 3,000 kilometers so that the car gradually gets used without having to squeeze as much power and strength as possible during the first trips.

In general, the most advisable thing is to avoid loading the vehicle during the kilometers that you are going to dedicate to the shooting. Whenever possible, do not overload the trunk or use the car during the taxi to carry very heavy loads.
