Reliability is the Key to Less Maintenance

I’ve spent the past couple of weeks looking for a new ride. I’m a diehard Ford fan but my old Focus is coming near the end of its days: the wear and tear of everyday travel for the past 8 years will do that to a compact car. However, I have nothing but praise for the reliability of that old ride, so I’m looking at sticking with ford for my next vehicle. I was checking out some options on the garlitch ford website and noticed some pretty awesome features on F-150s and some other vehicles. I’ve had exceptionally bad luck with tires and never seem to notice when they are getting low on air. However, it seems that newer vehicles have a tire pressure monitoring system. I know this may seem commonplace to some out there, but those of us who haven’t made an upgrade to a newer vehicle in a while may have not heard of such a thing. An option like this could save me a whole lot of grief in the long run. Don’t get me wrong: I’m normally pretty spot on when it comes to maintenance and repairs with any vehicle I own. Yet, I sometimes overlook the tires.
