Whether you’re showing up for a date or job interview, the first impression you give off can make or break you. The same principle applies to your vehicle. It doesn’t matter if you drive a brand-new luxury car or an unassuming older set of wheels. A bit of TLC will ensure that your car will give off a great first impression.
Keep it Clean
Have you ever had to wait an eternity while a friend or relative clears their passenger seat of mess and belongings for you to enter? It’s messy, sticky, and gross. Don’t be that person! Take some time out of your weekend to empty your vehicle of the mess you’ve accumulated. Be sure to vacuum the interior and take a drive to your closest car wash. Believe us, your passengers will thank you for it.
Keep it Organized
Everyone agrees with the notion that it’s important to know where all of your things are. Take that organization one step further by sorting through your car’s essentials and putting them where they belong. Maybe the jumper cables don’t need to hang around in the backseat and can be relocated to the trunk. Or perhaps the napkins you like to keep on the dashboard can move into the center console. Keep organized at all times!
It Has to Smell Fresh
Remember the last time you left your windows open when it rained and the seats got soaked? Or how about the time you forgot your gym bag in the back seat for a whole week? Well, we hate to break it to you, but your car might stink if something like this has happened. We recommend wiping your seats down with car-specific cleaners and invest in some car fresheners. You’ll notice the difference in no time.
Fix Those Imperfections
We understand that older cars are going to have imperfections that might be a bit too expensive to fix. That’s why you should focus on fixing the smaller ones! If your car has some minor dings or scratches, there’s an abundance of inexpensive methods to fix them. Or perhaps your floor mats are in rough shape? If so, take a quick trip to your local supercenter to replace them!
