It is very important to take care of your car at all times because or else it can cost you alot. Many of the
following tips will actually save you a lot of money.
Make sure your car is clean
Continuously make sure you wash your car every few days so that any dirt present on the exterior of the
car, gets washed away. Dirt could include tree sap, bird droppings etc and these actually contain acids
that can burn the clear coating of your cars paint. This means that you will have to get the exterior
repainted, this can cost round about £350 just get one panel painted and often can cost £1000 to get the
entire exterior painted.
Top up your liquid levels
What happens when you haven’t driven your car for certain amount of time then the liquids of your car
sink down so it is important to re-check and even if you aren’t driving it is still important to turn your car
on a few times.
Also put your windscreen washer lubricant again before you drive.
Look out for Pests
When your car stays in one place for a ery long time especially during winters, animals like birds or
squirrels decide to make their home inside the car, so the way to make sure you’re also not harming your
car and the animals is to give your entire car a good scan and then go off on a drive.
This can save your round about £220 which is a great amount of money.
Feel the pressure in your tyres
Everytime there is temperature drop of 10°F then the pressure also drops round about 1 psi.
Air can leave the tyres when the car has not been used for a certain amount of time so re check that
before driving in order to keep the tyre still worthy of use.
Flat spots prevention
When you keep the car in one position or place then whichever position the tyre is in, it produces a flat
spot exactly where the tyre had touch the ground.
The best way to prevent damaging your tyre is to just move the tyres here and there every now and then
so that no spot becomes flat.
If this happens then you should fill up your tyre to its max pressure and drive the car. During the drive the
tyre gets heated up and tyre reforms.
This can save you £180.
If the car stays inactive for a great period of time then rust can build up and this can damage your car
brake. This can for sure be prevented if you take the car on a drive every new and then, also by cleaning
your brakes as much as possible. This can save you £80.
Hands off the brakes
The hand brake can actually get stuck if its held in one position thus this can further build up rust. If you
know you won’t be able to drive your car for some amount of time then it is better to leave the handbrake
off to prevent it from getting stuck. This saves £30, and every penny counts.
Drive the car every now and then
The above mentioned issues only arrive if you leave your car unattended for a long time and thus to save
money and your car its important to continuously drive your car every few days atleast.
