New Year’s Resolutions for FIAT Drivers

“What the New Year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the New Year.” —Vern McLellan

Goals and Resolutions

Another year means more New Year’s resolutions. While only 8% of individuals whom create a New Year’s resolution actually obtain their goal, many others struggle after setting unrealistic goals.

The quote from Vern McLellan says it best, “What the New Year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the New Year,” meaning that what you receive this year can be due in large part to what you’ve done to get where you are.

This year, consider making realistic and obtainable resolutions that can help add to your quality of life, while extending the life of your FIAT.

Parks FIAT of Wesley Chapel has put together a list of top New Year’s Resolutions for FIAT drivers to consider this year. Look to accomplish at least one of these resolutions in 2014.

Resolve to keep your FIAT clean. A simple, yet often daunting task, keeping your FIAT clean should be on your to-do list in 2014. Take time to remove any trash on your FIAT’s floorboards and be sure to check the console for any unwanted goods. Set a goal to visit your local car wash at least every couple of months to keep your car looking as good as new!

Resolve to maintain. One of the most important things any driver can do to help extend the life of their vehicle is through routine maintenance. This year, aim to schedule at least two checkup appointments for your new or used FIAT. To get a jumpstart on this year’s resolution, schedule your next service appointment with Parks FIAT of Wesley Chapel now with our online service scheduler.

Resolve to drive safe. Every year seems to get busier than before. With all of the hustle and bustle from everyday life, it’s common for individuals to feel rushed. This year, be aware of your surroundings and practice safe driving tips to help keep you and your loved one safe on the road. Be sure to always buckle up and drive within posted speed limits. Driving within the speed limit can also help extend the life of your brakes and tires, an added bonus.

Resolve to enjoy your FIAT. Whether you live in Wesley Chapel, Tampa or the surrounding area, make time to enjoy your FIAT and go on periodic leisure rides. Setting aside personal time for oneself can be very rewarding and serve as a way to relieve stress caused by everyday life. This year, enjoy the ride!

Resolve to accessorize. Are there any accessories or customization ideas that you’ve had in mind? Prioritize your list and look to add those accessories to your FIAT. From new floor mats, to a gas cap and even a new knob cover, there are many ways you can customize your vehicle.

Don’t be another statistic. This year, set a resolution that you can accomplish! Remember, most of what you get, is a reflection of what you give.

If you are in the market for a new or used FIAT, shop the Parks FIAT of Wesley Chapel new cars and pre-owned inventory. For a test drive, visit our FIAT dealership at 28647 State Road 54, Wesley Chapel, FL 33543.

5 Steps to Getting Your Car Ready for Seasonal Changes

The seasons are once again changing, and that means it’s time to make sure your car is in tip-top shape! Help avoid car troubles this winter season and consider following these five steps to help prepare your car for the seasonal changes:

Step 1: Change your oil. If you haven’t had your FIAT’s oil changed recently, consider doing so now. While Florida temperatures tend to remain mild, during cooler temperatures, thinner synthetic oil may be ideal, as it flows faster through an auto’s engine.

Step 2: Check your tires. This includes tire pressure and tread. Reference your FIAT’s manual to ensure your tires are properly inflated and have good traction.

Step 3: Ensure your brakes are fully functioning. One of the most, if not the most important safety feature on your FIAT would be the brakes. Visit Parks Fiat of Wesley Chapel, or your local FIAT dealership, to have your brakes fully inspected.

Step 4: Replace windshield wipers if necessary. It’s recommended to replace your windshield wiper blades every other season – spring and winter. If you notice your wipers have started to wear and tear, it’s time to invest in a new pair.

Step 5: Check your coolant. If you plan on traveling to cooler climates this winter, be sure your car’s coolant contains a 50/50 mixture. This mixture will help avoid any freezing.

Seasonal Changes for Your Car

Going through these five steps will improve the functionality of your FIAT and help you keep yourself and loved ones safe from car troubles this season.
