800 × 450The purchase of a luxury vehicle comes with the expectation of pristine paint and a new car smell that will hopefully last beyond the trip home from the dealership. For most people, purchasing a luxury car is a significant expense, though one they are likely to get ample satisfaction from. Substantial purchases warrant protection, so what can you do to protect your new luxury vehicle?

Wash and Detail

The exterior appearance of a luxury car is one of the most easily recognizable features that denote a vehicle as being a luxury model. The best way to maintain and protect your vehicle’s appearance is to have it regularly washed and detailed. If you choose to wash and detail your car yourself, carefully select quality cleaners and cleaning supplies to avoid accidentally damaging your car. You can wash your car as frequently as you like, but once every two weeks should be enough to keep your exterior in good condition.

Provide Safe Storage

Sun, wind, rain, temperature extremes, and other elements can also take a toll on your vehicle. Take action to protect it from the elements and things that could fall on it by storing it in a safe place. Ideally, you should keep your luxury vehicle in a garage that you can lock securely to protect it from would-be car thieves. At a minimum, a carport will help shelter it from excessive sun exposure. Take care to protect the underside of your car as well. It’s important to maintain your driveway paving to protect your car from bumps that can damage it.

Be Careful Where You Drive It

Exercise care and caution when taking your new luxury vehicle for a drive. Avoid driving over potholes that can damage your tires and axles. Maintain a safe following distance from other vehicles and practice defensive driving to reduce your risk of being involved in an accident. If you can, avoid driving through construction zones. These stretches of road often have more rocks and debris on them that can easily be picked up and thrown by other vehicles, potentially damaging yours.

If you want to keep your new luxury vehicle in perfect condition, you need to take steps to protect it. Wash and detail it often, protect it from the elements by storing it properly, and take care where you drive it. This will help keep it in tip-top shape so you can enjoy that luxury feel every time you drive it.
