Your car is one of the most important parts of your life and plays a major role in helping your family live their lives. Whether you plan to have your car for 2 years or 20 years, it's important to take care of your car There are many things that play a role in taking care of your vehicle.

Yesterday I had my 20,000 routine maintenance check up on my car, and as I was picking my car up, I got into a discussion with the service manager about the importance of taking care of what's under the hood as well as what's outside of it.
Weatherproof the Vehicle
Many cars aren’t protected from the elements and the weather outside. Cars endure wear and tear and can suffer in the winter and the cold, wet months as well as in extreme heat. Owners should weatherproof their cars especially in areas where weather conditions become extreme. It is crucial for the future of the car that it is is protected from the ice and snow, and this can be done by covering the car with a cover, or storing it in the garage when you aren’t using it.

Proper Maintenance
Proper maintenance is also really important when it comes to looking after your vehicle. There are a lot of things that can happen when it comes to improving your car maintenance, and you should know how to make simple modifications and fix problems in the car yourself whenever possible. This is essential for making sure you get full use out of the vehicle, whether it is for a terrific family road trip, the school run, or even in the case of emergencies.
Clean and Tidy
Keeping the interior and exterior of your car is equally as important as making sure it runs up to par. This means vacuuming the interior and washing the exterior on a fairly regular basis. You might also consider custom air fresheners to help make the car smell fresh and new.

Drive Sensibly
Driving as sensibly as you can is an effective way of ensuring that you look after the vehicle. Driving carelessly and recklessly puts unnecessary wear and tear on your car and shorten the life of it.
