4 Car Care Resolutions You Need this Year

April 27, 2020

Is there a better season than the start of the New Year? It’s a time where we reflect on the year that has passed and create goals for the year to come. At Tommy Terrific’s best car wash in Plano, we’re looking forward to taking special care of our vehicles this year. Here’s how you can too.

Resolutions for Your Vehicle

1. Book bi-annual maintenance 

Booking ahead of time means you won’t forget or put an appointment off! Plus, regular maintenance has a lot of benefits: 

  • Maximize your car’s performance and fuel efficiency
  • Maintain resale value
  • Catch problems early, saving you money on costly repairs

2. Clean it up - from the inside, out

Let’s face it - sometimes your vehicle turns into a bit of a catch-all; crumbs, wrappers, dirt, and dust. It’s safe to say that our cars bear the brunt of our busy lives! Schedule a professional cleaning to help prevent stains and odors from setting in. Regular cleanings also helps to keep your carpet and upholstery in tip-top shape.

Sure, a light vacuuming after your regular car wash is great for maintenance. But this year, treat yourself (and your hard working truck!) to a detail. Maintaining your leather interiors has never been easier with our leather care option at Tommy Terrific’s car wash in Plano

Speaking of protecting your resale value, a complete wash, including a clear coat finish, is exactly what your car needs. 

3. Under Pressure? Your tires, that is!

Did you know that the experts recommend rotating your tires every 5,000 to 10,000 miles? You can check your car’s owner manual for a more specific recommendation. 

If one of your resolutions this year is to save more money, taking good care of your tires can really help! If your car doesn’t have an automatic scene or, it’s important to check the pressure of your tires regularly. Maintaining ideal pressure will extend the life of your tires. Not to mention, your vehicle will be much safer to drive. 

4. Got oil? 

We recommend checking your oil about every other time you fill your gas tank. Your engine will stay well lubricated if you top it off as needed. 

With improvements in oil formulas, most carmakers suggest you change your oil between 7,000 and 10,000 miles. If you’re not mechanically inclined, it’s best to get a pro to help you out. 

While you’re at it, a monthly check of the rest of your car’s fluids will keep things running smoothly. Mark on your calendar each time you check your coolant, break, clutch, and wiper fluid.
