Getting a deal on an Orlando pre-owned car can save you a lot of money! But everyone wants to have a nice ride that they take pride in. So we talked with the experts at Toyota of Orlando and Toyota of Clermont and put together a list of the best ways to refresh your pre-owned car.
Tips for updating your pre-owned car
Taking pride in your vehicle isn’t something to be ashamed of. It’s nice to have a car that looks good and feel good in. There are a lot of things you can do to make your used car look better and be more comfortable.
- Heavy car wash
A clean car that beams in the sunlight is a happy car. When your car is clean it looks newer because there’s no dirt buildup dulling the exterior paint and no dead bugs roasting on the grill. And if dead bugs aren’t taken off in a timely manner, they will start to erode your Orlando pre-owned car’s paint. We recommend that average drivers in ideal conditions wash their vehicle at least once every two weeks.
- Polish and wax
Polishing and waxing your car after a detailed wash can make its paint look even better! Wax also helps to prevent your pre-owned car from Orlando’s harsh sun. We recommend only waxing your vehicle three to four times a year.
- Get clear Headlights
Most cars that were made in the past few decades have plastic headlights. Over time, build up can accumulate on your headlights giving them a foggy or yellow lock. This doesn’t just look bad, but this can be dangerous to drive your pre-owned car around Orlando at night in. You can get headlight restoration at our dealerships service centers or just do it yourself with a kit you can get online.
- Deep interior clean
Scrubbing the inside of your car is an easy way to heighten the appearance of your used car. We recommend using an auto shampoo on your vehicles carpet and upholstery to remove dirt and stains from them. This will also help get any stubborn allergens out of your vehicle that can’t be removed with routine vacuuming.
- Update your radio
Not being able to your favorite songs during your daily rides can make driving dull. If your used car has an old radio we highly suggest that you consider replacing it. We recommend getting a radio that has an auxiliary input and an MP3-player so you’re able to play songs directly from your smartphone.
