Happy 2019! With the New Year come new opportunities and resolves. For most people, resolutions involve self-improvement, such as losing weight and boosting their income. However, we also recommend you make New Year’s resolutions for your car.
1. Improve Car Operating Condition
Getting into better physical shape is a common resolution. Why not do the same for your vehicle? In 2019, make the commitment to take better care of your automobile. This means accomplishing basic maintenance, such as monthly oil inspections and tire pressure checks.
Beyond the DIY care, you should also take your vehicle to a service station for regular servicing. A lot of this is routine maintenance, but you’ll be surprised at the number of car owners who neglect this.
2. Improve Car Aesthetics
While not essential for function, consider improving outer appearances with a thorough detailing. This includes a full wash and wax for the exterior and a restoration of the cabin. We especially recommend improving aesthetics if you’re planning to sell the car or if it’s a lease. The same goes if you own a classic car, especially if you use it for automobile shows.
3. Improve Fuel Efficiency
When you improve fuel efficiency, you save at the pump and help the environment. If you plan to buy a new car this year, consider a hybrid or all-electric model. Washington has tax incentive programs in place for hybrid/electric car owners. These vehicles are also exempt from emissions testing. In addition, more insurance companies are offering discounts and reward programs for hybrid owners.
We Help Fulfill New Year’s Car Resolutions
Routine maintenance should be first priority. Once you take care of that, bring the car to Henry’s Auto Detail for a much-needed facelift. A New Year’s resolution for your car shows that you care about your investment.
