How to Keep Your Car Looking and Running Great

October 28th, 2014 | By | Posted in Uncategorized

A car is a major investment. You use it nearly every day, and it is vital to the success of your job, social life, and to accomplish tasks both major and minor. Since you spend so much time in your car, and since you probably spent a lot of money on it, it is wise to take good care of it! Most people do not set out to single-handedly destroy their vehicle; it is usually a result of simple ignorance. Here at U Pull N Save, we recognize the value of getting the most out of your car, which means taking proper care of it. If you do so, you will get a better resale value and—if you end up bringing it to us—a better price for the condition of the vehicle and the parts inside of it.

How to Keep Your Car Looking and Running Great

If you are concerned about protecting your investment and want to know what you should do to keep your car looking and running great for many years, the key is in proper care and maintenance. Here is what we recommend to keep your car in tip-top shape:

  • Change the oil regularly: Change the oil in your car according to the guidelines outlined in your owner’s manual. This is one of the easiest ways to keep your car in tip-top shape for the long term.
  • Use the recommended fuel grade for your vehicle: Do not go cheap on gasoline; use the fuel grade recommended in your owner’s manual. This will ensure that your car’s engine is in the best shape possible, and will keep your car running better and longer for years to come.
  • Take your car to a mechanic once each year: Overall maintenance is the best way to avoid major breakdowns and expensive repairs. Having a mechanic look under the hood at least once each year will prevent most major problems from developing.
  • Take care of the interior: Clean out your car once each week, and if something spills, clean it immediately before it stains. Leather interiors should be polished routinely, and if a cut or tear occurs, get it mended before it spreads.
  • Wash your car regularly: You might think that washing the exterior of your car is merely a vanity thing, but the truth is that—without regular washings—harsh abrasives can wear away at your exterior, chipping your paint and rusting your metal. This is particularly true in the winter, when salt and other chemicals on the road will deteriorate your exterior.
  • Have a mechanic fix problems: Don’t take your broken-down car to your brother for repairs! Treat your car like you would your body and take it to the proper professional for expert care.
