There’s no better feeling than bringing home a new vehicle. The paint job glimmers in the sun, the interior has that new car smell, and you’re beaming with pride.

Then, a few months later, the paint is starting to get scratched. There might be clothing, food waste, or dog hair making your interior dirty.

Want to prevent these common new car woes? Here are some tips on keeping your vehicle looking beautiful for longer and maintaining the value of your investment.

Mind Where You Park

If you have access to a garage or overhang, park there to keep your exterior paint job protected from the elements. Keep in mind that if your garage is too warm, it can lead to the ice melting on your vehicle’s finish. The residue might contain salt and other deicing agents, which will ruin the paint faster.

In the summertime, parking in a garage can also prevent tree sap and bird droppings from doing a number on your paint job too. (We’re serious—don’t let these stay on your vehicle, clean them as soon as you see them!)

Protect Against Scratches

If you don’t take the right precautions with your vehicle’s paint, scratches and swirl marks begin to blemish the beauty of its finish. 

A shiny, gleaming ceramic coating can restore the look of your car and help you keep that new car feeling for so much longer, or restore it even after years of wear and tear. To shield your paint against the harsh conditions of winter, we’re offering 20% off our Feynlab paint protection services.

Give the Interior Some Love

The interior of your vehicle is prone to lots of wear and tear. Everyday life, kids, and pets can all take a toll on the inside of your vehicle.

Keeping your interior clean can extend the lifespan of the fixtures, seats, and carpets. It can keep them looking new and prevent them from smelling stale or sour because dirt and grime won’t get a chance to settle in, causing them to look dingy and bacteria to grow.
