Looking After Your Vehicle: The Basics

Right now, more and more people are beginning to get their own first cars. The coronavirus and Covid-19 pandemic has seen recommendations to keep a distance from others and to keep yourself to yourself wherever possible. Of course, it’s much easier to do this when getting from A to B when you have your own set of wheels than when you’re using public transport. Of course, if you’re not used to having a car though, you may find that you’re unsure how to take care of it properly. At the end of the day, a car is likely to be the second biggest purchase you make in your lifetime – or the second biggest outgoing in your bills if you decide to lease. So, where should you get started when it comes to looking after your vehicle? Here are some tips that will help you to keep it in tip top condition. Not only will this help your car to drive safely and look great, but it can minimise larger repair costs down the line too!

Carry Out Repairs Sooner Rather Than Later

Now, no matter how great or new your car may be, chances are, it will need some sort of repair work carried out at some point or another. As with any repair work, it really is important that you have it carried out sooner rather than later. Damage and issues rarely resolve themselves, so you’re inevitably going to have to fork out for the repair at some point. You might as well do this when the issue is minor and cheaper, rather than allowing things to worsen and then finding yourself fronting a big cost. As tempting as it can be to put off repairs that aren’t immediately necessary, you really should just get booked in at a garage or Super Duty Auto Glass Repair as soon as you have the chance.

Clean Your Car Regularly

Now, you may not think cleaning is essential for your car, but it really is. Having a clean car can be important for safety. It will ensure that you can see clearly out of all of your mirrors and will also ensure that other drivers can read your numberplate clearly should this be required. Cleaning your car will also help to keep it presentable,maintaining its value and generally making driving a nicer and more enjoyable experience for you. Now, of course, not everyone knows exactly where to start when it comes to cleaning a car. The good news is that you have two options. You can have your car professionally cleaned. This means dropping it off and having it back complete. There will be different options, such as exterior clean, interior clean or full valet. Alternatively, you can clean your car yourself. Just make sure to use cleaning products that are designed for use in your car to prevent any unnecessary damage.

Of course, there are countless other things that you can do to take care of your new car correctly. These are just a couple of suggestions. But hopefully, they’ll help you to get your driving journey started out on the right foot!

All-new Jaguar F-Type Coupe & R

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
