Maintenance Tips for Used Cars

Maintaining used cars is just as important as maintaining one that is new. There are certain things that you need to do when you own a car, and those things will keep the vehicle running smoothly. Whether you are a first-time car owner, or simply want to polish up on care for your car, the following should get you started.

One of the first steps in used car maintenance is cleaning and waxing your vehicle. After cleaning all the dirt and debris from the surface of your car, apply a nice coat of a high-quality waxing product. Doing this should protect the paint for months, making this something you only need to do about twice per year, or as needed.

Another step in car maintenance is bringing it in for regular tune-ups. While we have your car for a typical tune-up, we can look for other issues that may not be obvious to you. If an indicator light is broken, you may not know to bring it in for a fix. By allowing us to service the vehicle on a regular basis, we can find those things and repair them.

Used car maintenance also consists of having your car fixed whenever it is broken. Thinking that you'll wait until something is more serious could add a hefty bill or a more time-consuming fix. If your windshield is chipped, your light is burned out or something else is happening at all with the car, let us take care of it and send you on your way.

Finally, proper maintenance includes having the coolant changed. You don't want your engine to overheat or your system to corrode, so keep it cooled with a coolant change at least once a year, or as needed.

Used cars need proper maintenance just as much as any other car. If you own a vehicle, take some time to clean and wax, bring it in for a tune-up, fix any broken components and have your coolant changed.
