Of course, finding the premium automobile that’s ideal for you won’t matter if you don’t care for your car the right way. Believe it or not, simply cleaning your vehicle often is one of the best things you can do to tend to your automobile.

If you don’t wash your car often enough, bad things can happen. Built-up dirt can act like sandpaper and wear down your paint, for example. Dirt and other elements can combine to etch away at your exterior paint, too. Bird droppings and tree sap are just a few of the things that can have a negative impact on the appearance of your car if they’re not washed off within a reasonable length of time.

If your vehicle’s paint gets cracked, chipped, or etched, it can do more than cause your car to look less than perfect. It can actually lead to extensive damage. Cracked, chipped, or etched paint can expose the body of your car to moisture. If this happens, it can lead to rust and corrosion. If rust and corrosion spread unchecked, they can make your automobile undrivable over time.

While not washing your car can negatively affect its looks and drivability, it can also have a negative impact on your vehicle’s resale value. Well-kept automobiles typically command higher resale values. To preserve your car’s resale value, clean your vehicle often.
