3 Ways to Treat New Skoda Models Better in 2018
Many people have made their New Year’s resolutions for 2018, and perhaps one of them was to treat their cars better. When a car is well looked after it can reward the driver in a number of different ways for very little effort. You could save money on fuel, drive a nicer looking can and even extend the life of your car in the long term. In this article, we will look at three ways that you could treat your Skoda car better in the year to come.
1. Regularly Check Your Tyre Pressures
It’s very important to ensure that you have the correct tyre pressures for your car model. A car that is driving on good tyres at the right pressures will provide more grip for driving activities, such as: accelerating, turning and stopping. This should be a weekly task that you can carry out when you fill your car up at the garage. If you’re not sure about the tyre pressure, check your owner’s manual or online for more details. Don’t forget to check the spare as you never know when you’re going to need it.
2. Extend the Lifespan of Your Tyres
The tyres on your car are the only four contact points that your car has with the road surface. We’ve already discussed correct tyre pressures, but the condition of the tyres is also very important for maintaining grip. Tyres are expensive to replace, and anything that you can do to extend their useful lifespan is recommended. Tyre rotation is an art that is beyond the scope of this article, but if you don’t want to carry it out yourself, you can get them rotated during a service. A well maintained tyre will provide excellent grip, last longer and save you money on your fuel bills.
3. Wash Your Car
This is another simple task that many drivers sadly ignore or forget about entirely. Most drivers will simply wash their cars when they get too dirty, but this is not the best method. A regular wash will remove deposits of dust, dirt and other contaminants that may have settled on the paintwork. Some contaminants, such as tree sap and bird droppings, are actually acidic and they will damage your paint. Regular washing and waxing will protect the surface of your car, keep it looking great and help to maintain the cars resale value.
