3 Simple Ways to Maintain Your Luxury Car
Owing a luxury car feels really good. The comfort, performance, and style that these vehicles provide – it’s magical!
However, just like their name, luxury cars need high-end maintenance to keep them in top condition for a long time.
The following are three simple everyday maintenance tips you can begin with. For advanced care practices, we recommend that you speak to our customer support. They’ll give you specific maintenance advice depending on the brand and model of your car.
High-end cars are made with high-quality materials. It’s important to use the right cleaning products for each interior surface. In most cars, the seats are made from high-grade leather. These seats should only be cleaned with approved products. The same applies for the leather covering the steering wheel.
For the carpet flooring, vacuum once a week to remove loose debris and gently scrub with a stiff-bristled brush and approved carpet shampoo to remove tough spots. The dashboard of most luxury cars is made from real wood accents and trims. Only clean it using approved wood polish and microfiber cloth.
Exterior cleaning is just as important as interior cleaning, and again, gentle wiping with approved products is recommended. Regular cleaning helps to protect against discoloration, cracking, marring, or peeling that may be caused by road debris, dust, and acid rain. Cleaning also protects against the effects of excessive exposure to UV rays.
Waxes and sealants are also recommended but must only be applied by a professional for best results. Washing, waxing, and sealant application frequency will depend on how often you drive the car. If you drive regularly, wash once every one or two weeks and wax/apply sealant once a month.
Servicing, maintenance, and repair
Body, A/C, brake, and engine servicing and repair should only be done by professional technicians with experience in that specific type of car. For body repair and painting, always choose a body shop that has experience working with exotic/luxury cars.
For air conditioning (A/C), find Certified Factory Trained professionals for the repairs and ensure that original replacement parts are used at all times. The same applies for the braking system. Only original parts should be used and repair should only be done by certified professionals.
The engine is even more important. Have a professional periodically perform diagnostic tests for Check Engine lights, Traction Control, ABS, SRS, Service Engine Soon, and Battery light. If replacement is needed, only original parts should be used.
