Useful Tips For First Time Car Owners
If you are reading this, chances are you just officially got your first car. Congratulations on your hard-earned investment!
Owning a car is a big responsibility, and we’re not just talking about everything you had to work on before having it registered under your name. It also entails routine maintenance on top of costs for repairs, insurance, fuel, tolls and other unforeseen charges.
But fret not! Bloop Wash would like to share some advice for new car owners. Here are some tips you should keep in mind before taking your car on the road:
Read Your Vehicle Manual
Going over your car’s manual may not sound fun, but it carries important information that will become useful throughout your car’s lifetime, including its octane rating, its safety features and controls, and the maintenance of its battery, tyres and fluids.
Compile Your Receipts
Organizing your receipts in one folder keeps you updated about your car’s service history and makes it easier for you to track your vehicle transactions in case of trouble. Moreover, it will help you justify the value of your car if ever you plan to sell it in the future.
Set a Fixed Schedule for Your Car’s Maintenance
No matter how busy you are, take the time to have your vehicle maintained to preserve its value and keep it in tip top shape. Depending on the suggested maintenance schedule stated on your car manual, have your tyre pressure, oil level, and air filter checked regularly.
Reevaluate Your Driving Habits
Are you the type of driver who accelerates quickly and stops suddenly in full force? Believe it or not, this driving habit burns a lot of fuel and causes your brake pads to easily wear and tear. Changing such practice will not only save you money from gas prices, it can also serve as your simple way of contributing to a cleaner and greener Singapore.
Park in the Shade
As much as possible, avoid parking your car at an unshaded area to protect it from the sun’s UV rays which can damage your car’s paintwork. If no shaded parking slots are available, use a car shade to reduce the sun’s impact.
Get A Regular Car Wash
Besides letting you create a positive impression, having your car cleaned regularly allows you to enjoy its maximum performance and prevents your car from easily deteriorating. Choose a car wash dealer that observes safe steps in keeping your vehicle squeaky clean and does not use harmful chemicals that could ruin your car’s interior and protective coating.
