A Clean Car is Money in the Bank


Purchasing a new car is a major financial investment. Keeping it clean is an easy and inexpensive way to protect its resale and trade-in value, says the non-profit Car Care Council.

"Many motorists procrastinate when it comes to cleaning their vehicles," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Whether you do it yourself or have it cleaned professionally, proactively keeping your car clean on the outside, and tidy on the inside, will pay big dividends when it comes to maintaining your vehicle's value over time."

The Car Care Council suggests five simple steps to keep a vehicle clean, helping protect it from the elements and preserve its value.

  1. Declutter - Start the cleaning process by removing excess clutter from inside the car as it can be distracting and hazardous, especially when debris finds its way near the gas and brake pedals. Don't forget to clear out items that have accumulated in the trunk as they can add extra weight and reduce fuel efficiency.
  2. Clean the Interior - The next step is to thoroughly clean the interior, wash the windows, and clean and install floor mats. Be sure to vacuum on a regular basis. A clean and orderly interior allows you spot issues in the cabin so you can get them repaired before they get worse.
  3. Wash the Exterior - Give your car a good wash from top to bottom using products specifically made for automobiles. Always clean the tires and wheels before washing the body, and don't use the same washing mitt or cloth for both.
  4. Wax Twice a Year - Waxing not only protects a vehicle's finish, but it also makes subsequent washing easier. Before proceeding, make sure there are no foreign particles on the paint. It is important to note that waxing should be done in the shade, not direct sunlight.
  5. Fix Chips - If you find minor paint damage, cover the paint chips as quickly as possible to prevent further damage. For a quick fix until you can get paint touchup supplies, dab a little clear nail polish on the scratch.

what our customers say

I have always been the gatekeeper of vehicles and have always used independent auto repair services. Of all the auto repair service places I have used, D&G Tire and Auto is the absolute best. Dennis and his brother are honest, fair, and perform excellent work. They never try to "sell" you on repairs that are not needed or don't immediately need to be performed. They talk to you in a kind and informative and respectful way. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone. You will be very happy.

Honest and trustworthy. Two qualities that are hard to find these days. My vehicle has quite a bit of miles on it and destined for things to go wrong. I will drive a half an hour just to bring my car to DG's. I am a single lady with no automotive experience and would typically be the classic 'easy target' at many automotive repair shops. Dennis never tries to sell me things that I don't need, and I appreciate that more than anything. I value his kindness and professionalism. I get great service at a fair price, and my car is finished the same day. I drive away feeling like I got my money's worth. In my opinion, DG's Tire and Auto is by far the best around!

Dennis and the team are flat awesome. They are flexible, affordable and trust worthy. He worked in my truck on a Saturday and quickly and professionally did my breaks in a few hours. I trust him with all our vehicle needs and will be a repeat customer from now on. Five stars.

This is the best automotive shop I could ask for. They know who I am every time I call, their work is top of the line and their prices are even in budget for a single mother of 2. I had them find me a new engine after Wal-Mart messed mine up and my car has never run better. I go there for every issue I have no matter how minor and they always know just what to do and I am not paying an arm and a leg. As long as they are here they will have my business and anyone else that I can convince to go. If you try them once you will keep going back.

I must say what a great pair of guys . They have been my sole mechanics since 2008. All three family vehicles have been there for various problems. He does everything from bulb replacement to transmission replacement . Love him not trying to sell me a new air filter with every oil change !!
