Best way to make your car last longer

13th December 2021
"Drivers, who know how to properly treat their vehicle with regular upkeep and maintenance, as well as proper driving techniques, make your car last longer"

Drivers, who know how to properly treat their vehicle with regular upkeep and maintenance, as well as proper driving technique, get far more kilometers out of their purchase than those who don’t.

Here are some tips to help you keep your used car on the road longer and save money at the same time:

Maintain your car’s battery

If you don’t use your car for long periods, the battery will degrade and go flat.

Consider using a trickle charger to keep the battery topped up if your car is left in a garage for an extended period or a battery conditioner if it appears to hold less charge than usual.

If your battery does go flat, having to jump-start a car puts additional strain on the battery and may damage the engine management system and other delicate electronics: a double-whammy of increased wear.

Drive smoothly

Your driving techniques have a huge impact on how long your car lasts.

Driving your car smoothly means planning your stops to avoid slamming on your brakes.

It also means staying alert of your surroundings and avoiding potholes, bumps, and other mishaps on the road.

Driving smoothly will minimize wear on your vehicle, save fuel, increase the longevity of your car, and most importantly, keep you safe.

Check your tires

Tires are arguably your car’s most important safety feature and it’s no exaggeration to say that checking them regularly – about once a week – could save your life.

Under-inflated tires will also increase fuel consumption, so keep them topped up to the recommended pressures listed in your car’s handbook to save money.

Change filters regularly

Your car’s oil filter and air filter become clogged over time, so it’s important to renew them regularly.

They should be replaced as part of scheduled car servicing, but both are relatively simple jobs – particularly an air filter swap – so you might want to give it a try yourself and save money in the process.

You can often prolong the life of the air filter by washing it, too.

Service schedule

Regular servicing is vital to keep your car in tip-top condition and prolong its life.

Service intervals are based on time or miles are driven – once a year or every 10,000 miles, for example.

Check the handbook to find out when your car is due to a service and what work is required.

A minor service includes changing the oil and oil filter and replacing other fluids if necessary.

Depending on the car and mileage, a major service may also cover the replacement of the air filter, spark plugs, and cambelt.

Top Ten Car Accessories

21st September 2019
"You will need these accessories as soon you buy a new car."

The following is the list of Car Accessories that we found best for the Nepali Market. 


1) Bluetooth Receiver

Most of the latest cars include inbuilt Bluetooth, but if your car is still living in the past, this little gadget can bring it back to the present. As it's powered by a rechargeable battery, you don't need to worry about a constant power source -the battery lasts about a week for normal usage. Simply plug the device into an aux port, make sure your media player is in aux mode and connect your device. It also contains a microphone to enable you to answer phone calls on the go. Enjoy wireless music and handsfree phone call service with this purchase.

2) Key Finder

Do you struggle to find your keys or wallet, especially when you are in a hurry? Well, worry no more! With this device, you no longer need to waste time trying to find your precious items. Simply attach the receivers into any four items, and when you need to find them, use the transmitter to hear them beep and blink. Transmitting distance is up to 40 meters. Although it feels a little cheap to the touch, it does its job, making sure you don't lose your valuables.

3) Trash Can

Knowing Nepalese people, when we typically have trash in the car it’s most probably going to be thrown out of the window or into the depths of the edge of your car seat. This product is a must-buy for every car owner as it keeps not only your car clean but the very roads you use daily. The bin can be conveniently hooked at the side of your door or the backside of your seat without taking up much space and can hold about 2-3 days worth of trash.

4) Back Seat Organizer

If you are always on the go and can't stand a mess, this product will organize the plethora of items cluttering your car. With hooks to hang onto the seat (compatible with any car), this product will allow you to store items such as umbrellas and tissues, and it even has a large compartment for emergency clothes. It can hold your tablets and phones, whilst protecting your back seat from scratches and spills. If you need a little more organization in your car we highly recommend this product.



5) Phone mount

Imagine driving around a busy road and hearing your phone ring in your pocket. Fumbling for your phone is a highly inconvenient and dangerous task whilst attempting to swerve through the chaotic city traffic. By attaching this phone mount onto the dashboard, you can at all times have easy access to your phone. Additionally, if you are unfamiliar with a particular destination, you can use popular maps services such as the one provided by Google to guide you and have easy access to your phone at all times.      


6) Mirror Holder HD Video Screen

There’s a big windshield for us to see through the front. But the procedure to back is always a headache with the two side and one center mirror. This is a product that fixes a screen on your central mirror and connects it to the camera drilled in the back of your car. It reduces our efforts of turning back again and again by simply putting the video of the rear end in the front screen. It also supports motion detection and gives you signals right away when you are about to hit a wall or if somebody comes towards the car.



7) Air Freshner

Smell is associated with attraction. You might have a shiny car and clean seat but it wouldn’t be enough unless it smells nice. The car parked under the hard sun tends to have a pungent smell with the heating of leather covers of the seat. A good air freshener would be a golden investment for your car. It will only look classy if it smells classy.


Owning a car is fine but protecting it from dust and dirt is a tedious thing to do. Plus, the sun fades the color of the car and makes it look older than it actually is. The birds who play target practice with your car and the caterpillars strolling around might be a part of nature, but not for your car. Cover your car with it and early in the morning, you wouldn’t have to deal with problems nature might cause for your car.


9) Tire Inflator

Imagine going on a long trip, far away on your four wheels. The weather is so pleasant and the song in your stereo complements it. But when a tire gets deflated, you can do nothing about it. Consider buying a tire inflator to get back on the track again. The car tires can’t be inflated with your mouth just like the balloons, plan ahead for your next road trip.


10) USB car phone charger

USB car phone chargers are the supplementary boon to the humankind and you can keep it on your car accessories list as it is one of the most used tool and in a budget. You can now unlimitedly listen to songs connecting your phone to the Bluetooth stereo, watch a movie and if the battery gets drained, there is a charger connecting directly to your car’s battery.

Car tire and wheel care maintenance tips

7th December 2021
"Car tires are one of the most important components that have to be regularly checkup and maintained."

Cars need regular maintenance to perform efficiently, safely while driving, car tires are one of the most important components that have to be regularly checkup and maintained.

Here are some tire care and maintenance tips that you can follow during everyday driving and before heading on long road trips:

Maintain the right tire pressure
Most of the tire problems stem from improper inflation. Keeping your tire properly inflated is critical to maintaining the life of your tires, maximizing the fuel economy, and most importantly to keep you and the other passengers safe.

The maximum pressure that the tire can hold is mentioned on the sidewall of the tire.

But, that is the maximum limit and is not the actual pressure you want to inflate your tires with.

Check your tire tread depth
The tread depth of your tires must always be more than 2/32 inches.

If your tread depth reaches this limit, it is deemed unsafe and must be replaced.

More the tread depth the better is the grip and the stopping capability.

Get your wheel alignment checked
The front tires of your vehicle need to be aligned periodically to ensure that there is not an excessive amount of difference in the way the two tires are pointing.

A qualified maintenance facility can measure the amount of tow-in or tow out on your vehicle’s wheels and adjust it according to manufacturer specifications.

This prevents excessive and undue wear.

Choose your tires well
If you wish to get maximum life from your tires pay attention to the quality of tires.

Along with the tire brand, you must ensure that the tire size exactly matches the manufacturer’s recommended size.

This will prevent early tire wear, improve fuel efficiency and increase their longevity.

Clean your tires
Simply wash your tires with soap and water and remove dust from the wheels.

Cleaning your tires is not only important to enhance the aesthetic look of your car but is also a significant maintenance step that can prevent your tires from cracking and discoloration.
