At Kempster Ford Umhlanga we pride ourselves on selling well-maintained and reliable vehicles. Here are a few tips to ensure your vehicle is kept in excellent condition.
Check up on your vehicle fluids
– Engine Oil
– Brake Fluid
– Transmission Fluid
If you notice any leaks, you should get them looked at as soon as possible. Any of these leaks could negatively affect your vehicle’s performance.
Wash your vehicles regularly
During the day your vehicle is exposed to harsh weather, extreme sunlight or even frost.
Keeping your vehicle clean will help prevent long-term damage to the body and reduce the risk of fading paint.
Keep your leather seats from cracking or drying out
When considering long-term use, leather seats are quite durable, but if not properly cared for over time they will crack or wear slightly.
Use a leather cleaner to clear out stains and finish with a leather protector to keep that shine and strength. It also makes it easier to clean in the future.
Do the same for your cloth seats. This is because cloth seats are much more difficult to maintain but a quick vacuum, wipe with a wet cloth and a cleaning agent will ensure clean and neat seats.
Touch up your nicks or scratches
Making sure your scratches or nicks are touched up plays a huge role when discussing vehicle rust. A visit to your nearest dealership or panel beaters for a quick fix can save you thousands in the long run.
Maintain the correct tyre pressure
If you want value for money with your tyres, ensuring the correct levels or tyre pressure is crucial.
Wheel alignment checks
Poor wheel alignment could shorten your tyre lifespan and affect your vehicle handling. Here at CMH Kempster Ford Umhlanga, we offer wheel alignment checks.
Changing your plugs when needed plays a huge role in your vehicle’s performance. This can be checked when your vehicle is due for a service. Kempster Ford Umhlanga offers a fantastic service facility alongside express servicing for your convenience.
These are just a few simple tips that won’t take up much time and some can be done in your own garage. A neat and well-maintained vehicle not only allows you to have peace of mind when driving but will help you get more value when trading in your car.
