Car Care 101 by Tom Scott Honda: Washing Your Vehicle

We value our Nampa, ID customers and want to help them keep their vehicles looking like new. If you want to keep your exterior in good condition, then it is important to keep it washed on a regular basis. Dirt and other debris can cause damage to the protective coat and caked on dirt can also cause scratches and rust that will decrease your trade-in or resale value.

If you keep your car washed on a regular basis, then you have better fuel efficiency. A car that is clean is 10 percent more fuel efficient than a vehicle that is dirty. In addition, you also decrease your exposure to germs if you keep your vehicle clean.

A car that is kept parked in a garage most of the time may only need to be washed every few months. However, if you have an extended daily commute to work or live in extreme heat, then you may want to wash your vehicle weekly.
