Your vehicle is a very important investment to make considering its critical function to your daily life. If only for this, it’s only right that you take good care of it by giving it regular care and check-up for maintenance. However, not all car service jobs and repairs are made equal. Especially if you have a luxury car, you’ll need something a bit more special than what is normal fare. Here are some tips that should be able to help you take great care of your car so you can enjoy it for much longer.
Wash Your Car—A Lot
You don’t need to wait until your car gets all dusty to the point that you can leave messages on the windows before you take it out for a wash. In fact, you should be mindful about washing your car often especially if your location makes your car vulnerable to the elements. Those living in dry areas, for example, can expect a lot of dirt build-up, not just on the exterior but also inside the engine. Meanwhile, those living near or along the coast have the salty sea air and water to contend with, which could also cause damage to your vehicle. Read more from this blog: http://bit.ly/2HYFbA3

When it comes to taking care of your vehicle, you’d want to do it as religiously and meticulously as possible so you can get the best possible performance out of it, and for longer. There are many different steps you can take to ensure this, whether on your own or with a professional car service. Here are some things you should be on the lookout for if you want to catch any signs of problems early, so that you can get them repaired as soon as possible. Wash Your Car No matter how good engine performance is, cars are still judged primarily based on their appearance. If you want to make a good and lasting impression rolling down the street in your vehicle, then you must make the effort to get it regularly cleaned. A simple car wash can do to take out the usual dirt and grime, but a more thorough detailing is probably in order for harder-to-remove stains on the inside.

There is no denying that Mercedes Benz produces some of the most stunning and desirable cars on the Sunshine Coast and the rest of the world. Not only do their cars look fantastic, but their vehicles also offer smooth performance when well-maintained.
Of course, the operative word here is “well-maintained”. Like with other luxury cars, vehicles from Mercedes Benz require thorough maintenance at a car service centre so that you and your family enjoy a comfortable ride every time.
Generally, you’ll want to bring your Mercedes to a respected auto care centre on the Sunshine Coast, like SVS Autocare, every year for general maintenance. However, there may be times when you need to bring your car over earlier than that. Read more from this article: http://bit.ly/2EIpU4q

Keeping your vehicle well-maintained, whatever type or model it may be, is crucial if only for the fact that this is what gets you from Point A to Point B. As your main mode of transport, it’s only right that you take good care of it so you can also ensure your safety on the road.
Not all cars are created equal, though, and some may require a different kind of handling than the others. Especially if you have a luxury car, you should pay close attention to what kind of parts it needs, and the care that you give it. Here are some tips to help you with this task.
If you’re driving a luxury car, then most likely it’s going to be upholstered in leather. You can’t just use any regular cleaning agent for that because it might make things worse. And because your car’s interior makes up such an important aspect of the whole riding experience, it’s only proper that you use only the best products for it. Understandably, you may be wary about taking on the chore, especially if you have no real experience handling and cleaning leather. In which case, you should consider leaving your car service in the hands of the pros. Read more from this article: http://bit.ly/2oELsYQ

BMWs are among the most highly prized vehicles throughout the Sunshine Coast and the entire world due to their exceptional craftsmanship, aesthetics, and efficiency. As such, it’s only natural that those who own a BMW take extra steps to make sure their respective models run at peak efficiency at all times.
Although most car owners will have a BMW service specialist, such as SVS Autocare, to help them with engine maintenance, these specialists can also help with the maintenance of other important parts of the vehicle, such as the AC system. Since summers on the Sunshine Coast can be quite warm, ensuring that your AC system works properly is important. With that in mind, be sure to bring your car to a mechanic if you notice any of the following signs:
Diminished Cooling Capacity
One of the classic issues that plague air conditioning systems in vehicles is diminished cooling capacity. It isn’t uncommon to notice your AC system struggling a bit during a heat wave, but it shouldn’t falter on a regular basis. In most cases, diminished cooling capacity is a sign your system needs to be topped off with new refrigerant. It may also be a sign that there is a refrigerant leak.

Car batteries have an average lifespan of four to six years. Think back to how often you replace yours. If it’s every one to two years, that’s a ridiculously short amount of time for a car battery to last. Your Sunshine Coast car service professionals give you four practical tips to improve your car’s battery life and maximise the investment you get out of it.
Check Your Car Lights
Leaving the lights on overnight can be enough to drain a battery. Are you guilty of this error? Consider yourself lucky if your car has an auto-off function, but if it is of the traditional kind, then you need to get into the habit of checking all your lights before parking or leaving your car.

The brakes are an essential system in your car. Faulty brakes put you at risk of an accident, so it’s critical to your car’s well-being—and yours—to always keep your brake system in good working condition. If you notice a problem with your brakes, it’s in your best interest to have the issue investigated by a Sunshine Coast Audi service technician sooner rather than later.
Even if you have your brakes checked with each maintenance service, you still need to pay attention to signs and symptoms of a potential brake problem. Here are four things to watch out for.
Your tyres are the first thing you should look at if you believe you have a brake problem. If you feel a little skid when you step on the brakes even when you’re driving at moderate speeds, it’s possible that your tyres have become dangerously bald. Check your tire treads to make sure they are still at reasonable thickness. Read more from this article: http://bit.ly/2hWsFWj
