Having your car run for as long as possible is a must for many people. So what are some of things you can simply do to keep your car in good shape?

Cleaning the exterior will keep the paint looking new and for the interior the car materials will not be damaged. This doesn’t mean you have to do a full car detail each time. Simply just wash your car every month and vacuum the interior and wipe everything down. This will leave the your car feeling less grimy and easier to clean each time.
Store Your Car in a Safe Place
While not everyone may have the chance to store their car in the garage, it can be useful to do so. Parking in a garage will keep your car safe from thieves and the outside elements. If you have no choice but to park outside, it’s good to put a sun protector in your front window each time it’s sunny out. This will prevent the sun from drying out the plastic and leather in your car.
Regular Oil Changes

If you forget when you last changed your oil, it’s best to write it down or add it to your calendar to when you should think about changing your oil.
