Protect your ride for best resale value so when you sell it you can get top dollar for it. Read these simple how to keep your car in great condition tips.
This summer doesn’t have to be a scorcher – for your health or your car’s resale value. It’s hard enough keeping the sand and dogs off your leather seats, let alone remembering to wear sunscreen during those afternoon cruises. And while you might not hear praise for all of that hard work, it’s important to keep maintaining your car’s appearance – and protecting your health – top of mind during the peak car buying and selling season.
“It’s important to keep your car or truck in top physical condition,” says Jack Nerad, executive editorial director of Kelley Blue Book and kbb.com. “Late summer to mid fall is peak car-buying season, and those planning to purchase a used vehicle will look at everything from the state of the fabrics to sun damage to the condition of the paint. The sun can cause more damage than even the wind or rain.”
