New Care Care Tips
You've taken the plunge and brought home your shiny new car. It's a thing of beauty which you'll be admiring for a while every time you see it. You'll likely be hearing advice from friends and neighbors who stop by to see your new ride. Here are a few tips to take care of your new vehicle.
A little care goes a long way.
New brake pads on new brake rotors don't really require a break-in procedure. The texture deliberately left on the surface of the iron discs will grind down the fresh surface of the pad material within a few miles. Even so, refrain from high-speed stops or dragging the brakes for a few hundred miles.
Change the oil regularly.
A generous dousing of Scotchgard or a similar protectant on the cloth upholstery and carpets will keep dirt, pollen and mildew from clinging.
Protect the paint surface from harsh environmental elements and prevent premature aging with a car wax, paint protectant or paint sealant.
