A Clean Car is Money in the Bank

Purchasing a new car is a major financial investment. Keeping it clean is an easy and inexpensive way to protect its resale and trade-in value, says the non-profit Car Care Council.

"Many motorists procrastinate when it comes to cleaning their vehicles," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Whether you do it yourself or have it cleaned professionally, proactively keeping your car clean on the outside, and tidy on the inside, will pay big dividends when it comes to maintaining your vehicle's value over time."

The Car Care Council suggests five simple steps to keep a vehicle clean, helping protect it from the elements and preserve its value.

  1. Declutter - Start the cleaning process by removing excess clutter from inside the car as it can be distracting and hazardous, especially when debris finds its way near the gas and brake pedals. Don't forget to clear out items that have accumulated in the trunk as they can add extra weight and reduce fuel efficiency.
  2. Clean the Interior - The next step is to thoroughly clean the interior, wash the windows, and clean and install floor mats. Be sure to vacuum on a regular basis. A clean and orderly interior allows you spot issues in the cabin so you can get them repaired before they get worse.
  3. Wash the Exterior - Give your car a good wash from top to bottom using products specifically made for automobiles. Always clean the tires and wheels before washing the body, and don't use the same washing mitt or cloth for both.
  4. Wax Twice a Year - Waxing not only protects a vehicle's finish, but it also makes subsequent washing easier. Before proceeding, make sure there are no foreign particles on the paint. It is important to note that waxing should be done in the shade, not direct sunlight.
  5. Fix Chips - If you find minor paint damage, cover the paint chips as quickly as possible to prevent further damage. For a quick fix until you can get paint touchup supplies, dab a little clear nail polish on the scratch.

TESTIMONIALS

Grateful to Glenway Auto Center for helping my family in a difficult situation. My daughter was traveling across country moving from the East coast out West when her engine died 45 miles outside of Cincinnati. Phil was kind enough to let us have her car towed to the shop even though they were booked solid for The next week. They assess the situation the next day and provided options. Parts were ordered, the car and my daughter's belonging were kept safe and she was able to get back on the road again. Thank you Mike for all your help and for the great communication throughout the process. Much appreciation!
As always feel so safe after they work on my car. A piece of the splash guard was hanging down. Just noticed by accident. Took it in imminently and they reattached it.
Dropped my van off with engine locked up. They went out of their way to fix it at the lowest price possible by finding a used cylinder head. The van runs better than it ever has. Thank you Phil and your team!
Great job. Everyone is always Friendly.
Glenway Auto Center is a great place. Appointment scheduling is easy and service is always top notch and reasonably priced. Staff are professional and friendly. I highly recommend Glenway Auto Center.
Very friendly and professional Mike and Brad were right there to greet me and make my annual miniatous go by flawlessly. Thanks Glenway I'll be back!
