The big deal today is keeping value a function of car maintenance. A problem some face is the responsibility of keeping a fine car in top shape, while maintaining a tight budget. The trick is not to let important components like brakes and tires get so thin they might underperform. Once safety for yourself and others is addressed, my advice is don't slack off on any other systems which indirectly support the whole car.
