A car is a considerable investment, which is why you care for it with regular maintenance checks like oil changes, tire rotations, and other services provided by the technicians at Danville Toyota.
But there is something you can do yourself that is cheap, simple, and will ensure your vehicle maintains its value and beautiful appearance - Washing it!
Washing is often overlooked when it comes to regular vehicle maintenance, but at Danville Toyota we believe it’s just as important as any other regular service.
Without proper washing, not only will the appearance seem drab, the actual value of your vehicle will take a hit.
So if you need to keep your vehicle in tip-top shape for a lease, think you will be reselling, or just simply love to take proper care of your vehicle so it lasts longer and looks great, make sure you’re washing your car more than once in a blue moon.
Why is washing & waxing your car important?
Keeping the exterior of your car clean prevents contaminants like dust, dirt, pollen, tree sap, bug guts, salt, and pollutants from sticking to your vehicle and potentially wreaking havoc on the paint and finish.
Regularly washing and waxing the exterior will work wonders for sustaining its value and appearance.
We recommend waxing your car every 3 to 6 months. A good wax will give your car a showroom shine and help corrosive substances slide off the paint. This protects your car’s exterior from rust, discoloration, and stains.
It may also be smart to have your car detailed once a year for a truly thorough clean. You can pay to have this done or spend an afternoon doing it yourself.
