Your vehicle is probably your most beloved possession and your most expensive one. However, there are ways to save on your vehicle expenses, here are the few tips on how you can save:
Use car-wash products when you wash your vehicle: Only use proper car-wash products that won’t scratch or damage your vehicle’s paintwork. And don’t use a dirty rag – the grit on the rag could cause costly scratches.
Drive economically: Control your fuel costs by driving as economically as possible. Start by planning your journeys, thereby avoiding wasted trips. Close the windows (open windows create drag) and exert as little pressure on the accelerator as possible. When you are on the road, anticipate stops and slow down well in advance.
Consider refinancing your vehicle: There are many cost saving benefits when you refinance your vehicle through Iemas. Some of the benefits include: the opportunity to reduce your current monthly instalment, your annual cash-back rewards, skipping one month’s instalment, the opportunity to get a lower interest rate.

Take your vehicle for a service: A vehicle that is running properly is more economical, as there is less chance of it breaking down – which might cost you more than a service. Remember that when you buy a brand new vehicle, you will be covered for the first few services until the service plan expires.
Check your tyre pressure regularly: If you overinflate your tyres, they could burst and therefore would have to be replaced. Also keep in mind that the wrong tyre pressure could increase your vehicle’s fuel consumption by as much as 20% to 30%.
Make sure you have comprehensive vehicle insurance: This will ensure that you are covered for fire, theft and accidents (including the damage of the other vehicle involved in the accident if you were at fault).
