Luxury Car Maintenance: High-End Vehicle Care Tips

Luxury car maintenance doesn’t have to be difficult. However, there are some important things to keep in mind. For example, you’ll need to use two separate cleaners if your leather seats are perforated or not. Additionally, you may need a special viscosity of oil if you’re changing it during the summer as opposed to the winter.

According to Road and Track, you should start with a quality car wash. Avoid using hard water, as this can leave marks, and always be sure to rinse off grit and dirt before washing with suds. Next, use only high-quality carwash detergent and wax and be sure to clean the undercarriage. Finally, always dry thoroughly to avoid water marks and try to avoid sunlight on days when you’re applying wax or scratch remover.

Next, apply a leather conditioner to your seats. Most luxury car owners already do this, but it’s important to mention that you should be extremely careful using conditioner on perforated leather, as it can get caught under the material. There are special oils and other solutions specifically designed for such occasions—a worthwhile investment.

Consider getting a headlight renewal kit if your luxury car is a bit dated. These kits can remove the dirt and grime that accumulates on headlights to give you improved vision. Additionally, some plastics react chemically to intense heat and light—one reason some lights turn yellow. A restoration kit is fairly simple to use, and it will have your car looking like new in no time.

These are just some of the basic luxury maintenance tips to keep in mind. For special care from experts, stop by Perillo Downers Grove.
