The new year is a new beginning for everyone. People in Bahamas have a lot of resolutions to improve their lives, but what about your vehicle, does it also have importance? Here are some resolutions you should work on. 

Check vital components and fluids in the car.

You know that if any car part is damaged or broken, your car can't run properly. Likewise, you understand that your car's engine needs certain fluid levels for each component to function properly.

Briefly inspect the following parts and fluid levels in your car:

  • Air conditioning
  • Antifreeze
  • Battery
  • Belts
  • Brake fluid
  • Brakes
  • Filters
  • Hoses
  • Oil
  • Air conditioning refrigerant
  • Tires
  • Windshield wipers

Inspect the glass for damage

Your car windows serve two main purposes: to allow you to see around you and to protect you while driving. But when the glass is too damaged, it cannot fulfill those functions.

Wash your car

Dirt and grime make your car look dusty and unattractive. Tree sap makes your car feel sticky, and can damage body paint. To keep your car looking clean and shiny, wash it regularly. Next time you fill up, run the car through the automatic wash at the gas station, or give it a thorough cleaning with a hose and rag at home.

Apply a fresh coat of wax

Once you've washed your car, keep it cleaner longer - and protect the paint from damage - by applying a fresh coat of wax. Wax also makes your car look sleek.

Clean the interior

Even if you've taken great care of your car's exterior, the overall value of your vehicle can drop significantly if the interior is in disrepair. Take the time to clean the interior and keep your car spotless. 

Protect your car from the sun

Not only does the sun cause the paint on your car's exterior to fade, but it also damages the fabric or material of your seats. Park in shaded areas or parking garages whenever you can, and use umbrellas to block the sun.
