Don’t Overload Your Car!

  • Friday, Oct 11th, 2019

The blog this week is about avoiding bad driving habits that you may not even be aware that you are doing or realise the damage it is doing to your car. Read below to see one of the bad driving habits we have all probably done at some point in our driving lives:

Overloaded Car

Hands up who is guilty of overloading their cars! Whether it’s taking a summer holiday trip, taking the kids off to university, or it’s that much put off trip to the dump as we de clutter our lives! Cars today have been designed to carry heavy loads, however that doesn't mean that they can't be overloaded. The more weight you carry in your Volvo or Toyota the more strain you invariably place on the suspension and the brakes. As stated in previous blogs regarding fuel efficiency the more weight you carry in the vehicle the more fuel you will use as the engine has to work harder. So if you are one of those people who always carries their golf clubs in the boot then you will be using more fuel for every journey you take. De clutter your car for better fuel efficiency! Look after your car and it will look after you! Happy Motoring Folks!
