Tips On Detailing A Car - Exterior

Tips on detailing a car can help you protect your investment and keep it looking like new. After a house, purchasing a vehicle is most people's second largest purchase. It only makes sense that you would want to care for and protect your investment.

And, thoroughly detailing your car, truck or SUV a few times a year will help you do just that.

Follow these basic tips on detailing a car to keep it sparkling like new and hold its value.

Begin by parking the car somewhere out of the direct heat and sunlight. Find a nice, cool, shady spot to prevent baking any car cleaning products into the paints surface. Baked on soaps and waxes can be hard to remove and could cause permanent damage to your car's paint job.

Next, wash the car. Start by simply rinsing the car with the garden hose. Avoid using a nozzle that forces the water from the hose. A slow, steady rinse will gently remove unwanted dust, dirt and debris from the car's surface.

Significant Features of the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco

The Chevrolet Malibu is probably one of the most successful Chevrolet models for the past decade. This is because the Malibu offers a wide range of exciting features that buyers would surely enjoy. In addition to this, the Malibu is considered as one of the best in its segment in terms of physical appearance, fuel economy, and performance.

But despite of this positive image, General Motors is not yet satisfied with what the Malibu has accomplished so far since most of closest competitors such as the Hyundai Sonata and the Toyota Camry are currently improving their features. In fact, Hyundai and Toyota have been using hybrid technologies for such models to boost their fuel economies. To handle the stiffer competition posed by the Sonata and Camry Hybrid, General Motors started the production of the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco with a number of significant features to offer such as the following.

The Best Fuel Efficient Used Cars

Used automobiles are becoming more and more of a popular choice among drivers who do not require new and shiny vehicles to get them from one destination to another. More often than not, these owners are usually conscious about their financial decisions, and therefore would love to further save money on fuel consumption by purchasing second-hand cars that are also fuel efficient. To help you find that perfect ride, here are three of the best ones available in the market.

Although it was manufactured nearly twenty years ago, there is no denying the reliability and practicality the 1994 Mazda 323 brings to its owner. A child of one of the biggest Japanese powerhouses in the automotive market, the 323 is famed for its exceptional performance on road-handling. Its great handling allows the driver to get great maneuverability out of the vehicle, and thus getting a smooth and satisfying driving experience. Viewing the 323 from the outside, drivers would be lead to believe that with its small build, the car would be quite cramped on the inside, but taking a look in, they will see that it actually houses a spacious front passenger area. This Mazda currently sells at about $900.
