Taking the time to complete some level of maintenance on your car will help hold its value if you resell and will keep running safely. Here are some car care habits and routines that you can comfortably complete at home to keep your car in good health.
Get into the habit of checking your car’s vitals every other time you stop at the petrol station to fill up. This should include:
Our car’s paintwork is subject to sun, grease, grime, rain, tree sap and bird droppings. Each of these eat away at the paint and metal and can cause permanent damage to your car. Washing your car regularly can keep this damage to a minimum. You can wash your car at home or at your local gas station.
This mostly depends on your local climate. If your car is subject to lots of pollution or sea salt in the air you may need to wash it more frequently up to two or three times a month. If these elements don’t affect you as much you can wash your car once a month.
Don’t allow the inside of your car to become a dumping area for coffee cups, water bottles and other pieces of rubbish. Collect any rubbish from your car every time you leave it and have use of a bin nearby.
To keep the inside of your car clean you should apply car polish to the surfaces and hoover the floor and floor mats. If you have fabric seats treat any stains before they cause permanent marks or if you have leather seats treat them with leather conditioner to avoid tears.
Take pride in your car and avoid feeling embarrassed and declaring “please excuse the state of my car” when you have an unexpected passenger.
