Keep Your Car Looking New
There is something so nice about driving off the dealer lot in a brand-new car. Everyone always mentions the “new car smell,” but your vehicle is also untainted by debris and the wear-and-tear of time. You might want to maintain a new car so that it keeps that new look and feel all year long. But how would one go about accomplishing such a feat? Follow these tips to keep your new car new for as long as possible.
Invest in protective accessories and maintain the paintwork
Keeping up with your vehicle’s exterior paint can make a big difference in prolonging your car’s good looks. Accessories like weather shields and headlamp protectors help preserve the exterior as well.
Keep up with scheduled maintenance
This one’s common sense, but most people are guilty of skipping this step. Routine preventative maintenance keeps your powertrain running smoothly.
Use the right fuel and watch your mileage
Read the owner’s manual for fuel specifications and make sure you drive smoothly and carefully for improved fuel economy.
Protect your vehicle from the sun
Direct sunlight can fade the interior, so use a sun shade or try to park in shaded areas.
Clean your car regularly
Proper cleaning and care prevents a build-up of dirt and grime—not just on the exterior, but in the under-carriage, too.
If you didn’t know how to maintain a new car before this, hopefully these tips give you a good place to start. Good luck with your brand-new ride!
