The Wheel Deal: Tips For Keeping Your New Car In Good Condition

When you purchase a new automobile, it loses thousands of dollars in value the moment you drive it away. However, that doesn't mean it has to continue down that path. If you’re smart, you can make sure your vehicle retains as much value as possible during the first few years. That should mean you can sell it for a reasonable amount when you want something different. There are lots of measures you can take to ensure your car doesn’t deteriorate too much. Thankfully, most of them are straightforward and inexpensive. The tips below are just there to point you in the right direction. You still need to use some common sense and think outside of the box.




Use quality floor mats


Floor mats are one of the best ways to protect the interior of your car. Your vehicle should come with some already fitted. Even so, they won’t be the best product on the market. That is because dealers will try to make as much profit from your purchase as possible. So, it’s sensible to head out and visit a local specialist. You should identify the most advanced designs and buy them immediately. WeatherTech floor mats and similar items are guaranteed to make a noticeable difference. Your footwells will remain clean and dry, and you shouldn’t cause any damage to the carpet material underneath.




Only fill your car with premium fuel


It’s often tempting to purchase biofuel or something of that nature to power your new vehicle. While that will help you to reduce costs, it’s not the best solution for your engine. You need to use premium gas if you want to ensure it always runs correctly. The car was designed to operate using standard fuels, and so you should never use alternatives. That could result in lots of issues that lower the value of your automobile. Also, you might end up having to pay for lots of unexpected repairs.




Clean the vehicle regularly


Washing your car is one of the best ways to make sure it stays in good condition. The latest eShine cleaning products should help with that. If you leave it for a couple of months, the buildup of dirt could cause deterioration. That is the last thing you want to happen. Keeping it clean will limit the chances of the body becoming rusty and bring many other benefits. We’re not saying you have to head outside every weekend and perform the task by hand. However, a quick visit to your local car wash is a wise move. It only costs a few dollars to get the vehicle ship-shape. That’s money well spent when you consider how much you could lose in the paintwork looks faded.

Now you know some of the best ways to keep your new car in good condition, there is no excuse for letting things slide. You don’t have to work hard to keep on top of stuff, and you’ll feel glad you made an effort when the time comes to sell. Using those methods, you should have no trouble getting around ½ of the purchase price back if you swap the car in two to three years.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
