Everyone wants to drive a nice car but in order to keep it in tip-top condition it’s vital that you take care of your vehicle inside and out. We are all aware of the routine checks, such as oil change, replacing brake pads, belts and hoses, that need to be carried out in order to maintain our motors but there are also some simple ways to ensure your car ages well as you tot up the miles.
- Avoid exceeding the maximum capacity load for your car. This capacity can be found in your owner’s manual. The greater the weight of your vehicle the harder your car, specifically the brakes and transmission have to work.
- When you start your car let it warm up in order to give the oil a chance to circulate before you hit the road. Also ensure you check and change your oil and oil filter at the recommended intervals.
- When your car sustains damage book it into a professional body shop to have it checked over and repaired to avoid long lasting damage.
- Clean or hire someone to clean the inside and outside of your car thoroughly to ensure its upkeep and resale value when you come to sell your motor.

With winter just around the corner, Auto Medics – alloy wheel specialists in Buckinghamshire, wanted to help you know how to get your wheels winter ready.
Alloy Wheels Buckinghamshire
Winter brings with it the need to salt roads in order to prevent accidents in icy conditions. None of us can complain about this, safety is of the utmost priority, however the damage to alloys can prove severe. At worst, galvanic corrosion can cause long lasting damage, usually by infecting stone chips or kerb damage already occurring in your wheels, and rapidly advancing to corrode the alloy when salt from the road comes into contact.
There are ways in which you can attempt to prevent such damage, these include:
- Cleaning and protecting your wheels thoroughly before winter sets in and applying an appropriate wheel sealant.
- Clean alloy wheels weekly throughout winter with a gentle wheel cleaner to remove traces of road salt and brake dust that can aid corrosion during the colder months.
- Consider alloy wheel refurbishment if your alloys are damaged, this will prevent salt getting into the cracks and crevices and prevent corrosion from setting in.

At Auto Medics, we specialise in rectifying paint damage at our auto body shop in High Wycombe. We know how much you take pride in the appearance of your motor, and the frustration you feel when its paintwork is less than perfect, so we thought we’d offer some advice on how to protect your vehicle from the everyday hazards that can impact how brightly your car shines.
Don’t Mess with the Birds – the unsightly appearance of bird mess on the surface of our vehicles is something most of us want rid of immediately, its grainy texture and acidity can tarnish and scrape your paintwork. Using a soft microfiber cloth dampened with car wash, softly wipe away the bird droppings in an upwards lifting motion to avoid the gritty texture scraping the surface of your car.
Beware of Bugs – with summer approaching, we become faced with the influx of bugs that often end up splattered across the front of motors. Many motorists make the mistake of disregarding these splattered bug as harmless, which is a mistake as the bodies of bugs are actually acidic and if they are not removed promptly the imprints of these bugs can become impressed into the top layers of your cars paintwork. With swift action you can protect your paintwork by washing the off straight away by applying a bug and tar remover to a soft cloth and a good dose of elbow grease.
Drinks and Driving Don’t Mix – spilling caffeinated drinks such as coffee onto the surface of your car can damage the finish of your car and alter the colouring when it dries. Deal with it instantly using a soft cloth to wipe away the spilt liquid and then wash the area with soapy water.
Trees can Sap the Shine – parking under a tree can leave your car covered with patches of tree sap. It often proves difficult to remove and can permanently damage the paintwork of your car. Wipe it away as soon as possible using a soft wet cloth with a specialist polish or rubbing compound. Then wash the area with soapy water until no traces of sap remain.
These are just a few things that can affect the appearance of your paintwork, the elements, eggs, fuel, even skin can all impact its appearance. Protecting the finish of your car can be helped by frequently washing and waxing your motor. If you find that your motor has sustained paint damage you’re unable to repair, get in touch with the expert team at Auto Medics on 01494 533 534.
