Some vehicle owners are proud of their rides and keep it shiny and detailed. Others beg someone to write “wash me” in the dirt. If you are in the latter class of owners, you might want to reconsider your vehicle washing habits.

Of course, you know that washing your car makes it look nice, but it can also help protect its working parts and make it last longer. Allowing dirt to accumulate on the outside of the car can promote rust and exterior damage. It can also help remove road salts from underneath the vehicle, which can preserve its mechanical parts.

Washing your car is a good investment that will make your car last longer and maintain its new look. Once a week is the recommended frequency by most manufacturers. Kurt Johnson Auto Sales in DuBois, PA recommends making car washing a part of your maintenance routine. This will keep your vehicle in top shape and ready for your next adventure.
