Other than a house, a car is one of the biggest purchases that most people make. If you’re like most buyers, you want to maximize the value you get out of your car. And the good news is that’s something you can do without much trouble. Of all the steps you can take to protect the value of your car, proper maintenance is without a doubt the best way to maximize your car’s value.

Why is maintenance important? It’s the simplest way your vehicle maintains its maximum value. Not only does a commitment to maintenance mean that you’ll always be able to depend on your vehicle for reliable performance, but if you ever decide to sell your vehicle, a track record of taking care of it will allow you to sell it for the best possible price.

3 Tasks To Do Yourself

Washing your car on a regular basis isn’t just about the pride you have in your vehicle. It’s also the best way to prevent things like dirt or bird droppings from damaging your paint. Prior to washing your vehicle, be sure to pretreat any spots like tree sap or bugs. Then once you’ve sprayed down the vehicle, hand washing it is the best way to go. The same is true for drying it. For the best results, park your vehicle in the shade whenever you wash it. This is also the ideal opportunity to vacuum out the interior and wipe down the dash.

The second thing to do on your own is avoid aggressive driving. Although that may not sound like a maintenance task, staying cool and collected when you’re behind the wheel is the best way to avoid prematurely wearing out your vehicle’s suspension, tires, engine or brakes. Finally, the other thing you’ll want to do is keep your own service records. While there are services that allow buyers to see a vehicle’s service history, having easily accessible paper copies of these records will be very useful if you ever want to sell your vehicle.

Dealership Maintenance

Consistent Ford Service Center maintenance plays a key role in keeping your vehicle in ideal shape. There are several forms of maintenance you’ll want to take advantage of in order to properly protect your vehicle. The first is getting your oil changed. Here’s Ford’s official oil change schedule:

  • 2008 and newer model-year vehicles: every 7,500 miles or every six months, whichever comes first
  • 2007 and older model-year vehicles: every 5,000 miles or every six months, whichever comes first

Getting your oil changed at Chapman Ford means that the technicians will be able to inspect your vehicle and complete any other required repairs as well. And since the schedule for other types of periodic maintenance varies by vehicle, be sure to check the handbook in your glovebox.

By following all of the Ford maintenance tips we covered, you’ll be able to count on maximum performance and value from your vehicle for years to come!
