Other than your house, your car is one of your most valuable possessions. Unlike your home, though, your car depreciates in value as it ages. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to combat the ravages of time.
Here are just a few DIY car updates, plus minders about your maintenance and Sacramento, CA auto insurance.
- Clean It: Sure, you keep your car clean, but when was the last time you gave it detail-level care? Shampoo your carpets and upholstery, vacuum out all the crevices, clean buildup out of your engine bay (make sure you are using the right products), and give it a wash and wax. Regularly deep cleaning your car can help prevent deterioration.
- Update Your Dash: If your sound system in your car is more than five years old, you are missing out on great amenities like Bluetooth capability and USB connectivity. Fortunately, upgrading your sound system can cost under $100 if you order it online and will significantly improve your car.
- Touch Up: If you have small scratches that are making your car look lackluster, you can easily cover them up. Your auto dealer or auto-parts shop should sell small bottles of paint that will match your car color so you can easily cover over unsightly scratches and small dings.
