At Casa Ford, we have hundreds of reliable, thoroughly-inspected pre-owned cars, trucks, and SUVs for your family to choose from. If you want to help extend the life of your pre-owned vehicle, there are a few simple things you can do to keep it in tip-top shape!

Keep Your Car Clean

Washing your car regularly may seem obvious, but it’s very important if you want to keep it running at peak performance. Your car is constantly picking up dirt and debris while you drive, and these abrasives can lead to damage to your brakes, tires, engine, and exterior paint. We recommend taking the time to thoroughly wash it once a month. Make sure not to skip your wheel rims, as they can pick up a great deal of harmful substances from both the road and your brakes as they wear down over time. Applying a coat of quality wax every six months will do wonders for your car’s exterior as well. Make sure to clean out the interior too! You may be surprised how much of a difference regularly vacuuming and wiping down the cabin can make in preserving your vehicle’s interior. Sometimes a clean car can look just as good as a new one!

Regular Maintenance

Like all machines, your vehicle requires regular maintenance to run properly. Whether you bring your vehicle to our expert service technicians or work on it yourself, investing a little in basic maintenance now can save you a bundle down the road. Things as simple as regularly changing your car’s engine oil is a huge factor in keeping it running properly. Keeping your oil up to date reduces wear and increases efficiency, extending the life of your engine and saving you money on gas! It’s also important to properly maintain your tires, brake pads, and air filters. All of these dramatically impact the life of your vehicle, so make sure to replace them when needed. Basically, if you take care of your car today, it will take care of you down the road!
