Three Things to Start Doing TODAY for Your Vehicle
Are you thinking of trading in your vehicle someday? We do it every day at CROWN! These are the top three things you need to start doing TODAY to help us get you the most for your vehicle.
Take Care of the Little Things
The chip in your windshield might not be a big deal, but fixing it before you come in could help improve the value of your trade-in. Little things like untwisting your seatbelts, defogging your headlights, or getting your trunk latch fixed show us you take care of your vehicle.
“If you take good care of your vehicle it will show. Doing little things like washing your car every week, especially in the spring months when there’s salt still on the roads, will make a huge difference in the long run.”
– Garrett Krieg, Pre-Owned Car Manager
Regular Service Appointments and Their Documentation
Keeping a binder of everything you’ve had done on your vehicle will give us a better understanding of what’s going on under the hood. If you service your vehicle at any of our CROWN locations, we will already have a record of this for you.
Regular maintenance on your vehicle will improve its value and lengthen the lifetime of your vehicle. If you have any outstanding recalls on your vehicle get them fixed.
Drive to the Conditions
We normally say this about bad weather, but road conditions play a part in this too. If you are an aggressive driver your vehicle will accumulate more wear and tear damage than most vehicles. Watch out for potholes, stick to the speed limit, and use the right tires to protect your vehicle.
