Tips on refreshing your pre-owned car
- Clean everything
A thorough, deep car clean will instantly make your car appear newer. Now we aren’t just talking about quick vacuum and window clean. You should shampoo the carpets and upholstery with an auto cleaner. A deep clean will make it look like a nicer vehicle and get out all the irritants that are festering in your pre-owned vehicle.
- Steering wheel cover
Steering wheels usually fall apart faster than the rest of the vehicle’s interior because of how much it’s used. Having a steering wheel that is discolored can make your car look like a clunker. This can easily be fixed buying a steering wheel cover. Steering wheel covers come in different padding options and countless designs. So no matter how personalized and over the top you want your cockpit to be, you’re sure to find a steering wheel cover that fits your car and style.
- Turn up your dashboard illumination
Check that the illumination is tuned up all the way up on your dashboard. This will make it easier to see your speedometer when you’re driving at night. If the knobs or switches are broken, we recommend replacing them with either new or recycled pieces.
- Update the radio
Replace your old radio with new one. We recommend getting a car radio that has an auxiliary input and an MP3-player interface so its compatible with smart phones. This will give you have the option to conveniently play music directly from your phone.
- Clean your headlights
Most vehicles that were made in the past few decades have plastic headlights. These will dull over time and really show your cars. You can fix this yourself by get a headlight restoration kit, or have it done at our N Charlotte service center.
