Keep it Striking While It’s Hot!

Once your new car is delivered in your garage, you would want to see it always new, damage free, and clean. Of course you definitely would also want to always experience excellent driving with it. So why not maintain your car as striking as always while it is still new?

In whatever item, the first thing that people notice about is the outside appearance. In the case of your car, it is definitely the exterior. For your new car to have an ever striking appearance, the best thing to do is to maintain its exterior.

To prevent road salt and acid rain from marking the paint and eating into the sheet metal, apply some coat of wax. Religious waxing every after six months will protect the paint of your car and will surely keep it looking new for several years. Another option is a weekly car washing. As washing a teenager’s face regularly makes her younger looking, weekly car washing also makes your car fresh looking. But see to it that your car will undergo an under car wash section every car washing. This washes away road salt and keeps the car from rusting from the inside. This will also contribute to your car’s better performance because rust free auto parts function well.

If your car happens to be one with a convertible top, make sure the top is clean by applying some convertible top conditioner every six months to maintain its good condition.

Replacing the wiper blades once a year is also a good practice. Wiper refills only cost less. But despite this fact most car owners only replaced them when they start streaking and skipping. Use the appropriate wiper blades for the season to avoid possible wear and tear.

Remember that every part of your car is important. It goes with the saying that all should be clean and in good condition. While it is true the exterior is the first thing that is seen by the people, the interior is also important because it is where you and your family will be seating and that will determine your riding and driving comfort.

Much as you keep the outside part clean, do the same on the interior. On your leather seats, apply some leather dressing once a year to keep them flexible and prevent them from cracking. Frequent vacuuming of the carpets, mats and rags prevents dirt from your interior. Putting some accessories and spraying your desired auto fragrance can also help in maintaining a nice interior.

Other important aspects of your car that go hand in hand are the fluids and the engine. Without it, your car will not run.

In addition, regularly check the fluid levels. See to it that they are up to the full marks and top off your windshield washer fluid. But if it does not reach the exact mark, no need to worry; at least make sure it is nearing the full marks. Also see to it that it will not over flow in the cylinder. And remember that an always low fluid is a sign of leakage.

Try to look around the engine and see if there are any signs of growing problems. You may not know that something is wrong but eventually, you will understand what is normal for your car, and what is not.

Also inspect the tires. Analyze if there are loose parts. The exhaust pipe might already be hanging lower than normal or a piece of body molding is already starting to come off. To know if the car has shocks or struts that are starting to go bad, bounce the corners of the car and if it bounces more than two times, then something is wrong.

By doing this maintenance, you are assured of an always new looking car. And to make sure that your “always new looking car” will really be new looking always, maintain your garage’s cleanliness. Properly store unnecessary things around your car such as the tools you used while repairing it like the carburator rebuild kit and the vacuum cleaner.

Truly, things happen when you least expect them. Before anything gets worst, better prevent the undesirable things. Always maintain your car.
