Whether you bought New or you chose to go the Pre-Owned route, the simple truth is that the car that's currently in your driveway is now a Used Car. Whether you plan to keep your car for the long haul and watch the odometer go up and up and up, or if you hope to trade it in for something newer in the not-so-distant future, that vehicle is going to need some TLC to keep it running smoothly and to help it retain its maximum value. Here are the Top 3 simple maintenance tips to keep your used car in tip-top shape.
Maintenance Tip 1. Keep your used car clean
Let's start with an easy one. Frequent car cleanings doesn't just keep it looking as sharp as possible, it can also keep the car running smoothly. When cleaning your car, be sure to thoroughly hose out the areas that tend to collect dirt and mud such as the wheel wells and undercarriage.
Of course, living in London Ontario, we are no stranger to snowy winters. It's especially important to keep up on your car washing during the winter months as road salt can do real damage to your vehicle's longevity.
