There’s a lot that goes into owning a vehicle, ranging from general care to keeping an eye on every part of the vehicle for defects, damages, and more. That can be a bit overwhelming, especially for first-time car owners. Fortunately, here’s everything you need to know about car care for first-time owners from us here at Mama’s Used Cars.
- Washing – Skipping a weekly wash and wax can be enticing but it could be devastating to your car. Washing and waxing the paint helps preserve its pristine look from common road hazards like grime, salt, and bugs. Most waxes only last a few weeks to a month so be sure to wash your vehicle often!
- Owner’s Manual – Often referred to as a guide to your vehicle, the owner’s manual will be able to answer almost any question you have about your car. If you don’t have a manual, odds are you can find it online for free. Make sure to mark the page with the service schedule for easy access later on!
- Flat Tire – Despite the rise in roadside assistance, knowing how to change a flat tire could save you time and money. Spend some time in the garage or driveway making sure you know how to remove and replace a tire. You’ll thank yourself later on!
