Washing Your Vehicle is Important! Find Out Why
Here at Straub Honda, we like to help our consumers keep their vehicles looking good. Keeping your vehicle washed is very important. It removes contaminants like dust, pollen, dirt, and other debris that can get caked on the exterior and cause damage. A dirty vehicle can cause scratches, rust, and damage to the protective coating.
It is also beneficial to keep your vehicle washed because it will improve fuel efficiency. A clean car is about 10 percent more fuel efficient than a vehicle that is dirty.
If you have a long daily commute, then it is probably best if you wash your vehicle weekly to remove any debris. You should also wash your vehicle once a week if you live in an area with high air pollution or extreme temperatures. If you live in an area with mild weather and keep your vehicle parked in the garage most of the time, you should wash your vehicle once or twice per month.
