Tips for Maintaining Your Car's Resale Value

With used car prices being at an all-time high, it's a great time to consider selling your vehicle. If you're planning to resell your car, it's essential to maintain its condition to get a top resale price. By following these tips, you can maximize your used car's resale value.

Wax your car two to four times a year

After application, car wax hardens to form a protective layer that lasts 8-12 weeks on your vehicle's exterior. The wax protects the paint against damaging environmental factors like sun, pollen, salt, and minor scratches. It also adds shine and makes washing your car's exterior much easier.

Change the oil regularly

Changing your oil will not only improve fuel efficiency and mileage, it will also extend the longevity of your engine. Not changing your oil when it is due can cause your engine to overheat, which may cause damage to the vehicle. A good rule of thumb is to change your oil after every 5,000 kilometers, but you can consult your vehicle's owner manual for a more accurate measure.
