A Clean Car is Money in the Bank


Purchasing a new car is a major financial investment. Keeping it clean is an easy and inexpensive way to protect its resale and trade-in value, says the non-profit Car Care Council.

"Many motorists procrastinate when it comes to cleaning their vehicles," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Whether you do it yourself or have it cleaned professionally, proactively keeping your car clean on the outside, and tidy on the inside, will pay big dividends when it comes to maintaining your vehicle's value over time."

The Car Care Council suggests five simple steps to keep a vehicle clean, helping protect it from the elements and preserve its value.

  1. Declutter - Start the cleaning process by removing excess clutter from inside the car as it can be distracting and hazardous, especially when debris finds its way near the gas and brake pedals. Don't forget to clear out items that have accumulated in the trunk as they can add extra weight and reduce fuel efficiency.
  2. Clean the Interior - The next step is to thoroughly clean the interior, wash the windows, and clean and install floor mats. Be sure to vacuum on a regular basis. A clean and orderly interior allows you spot issues in the cabin so you can get them repaired before they get worse.
  3. Wash the Exterior - Give your car a good wash from top to bottom using products specifically made for automobiles. Always clean the tires and wheels before washing the body, and don't use the same washing mitt or cloth for both.
  4. Wax Twice a Year - Waxing not only protects a vehicle's finish, but it also makes subsequent washing easier. Before proceeding, make sure there are no foreign particles on the paint. It is important to note that waxing should be done in the shade, not direct sunlight.
  5. Fix Chips - If you find minor paint damage, cover the paint chips as quickly as possible to prevent further damage. For a quick fix until you can get paint touchup supplies, dab a little clear nail polish on the scratch.

We had a timing chain replacement in our HHR, got a fantastic job no problems. The service was good and fair priced. In January of this year we had a problem car just quit. Started it up, engine came on, the code said it could be a couple of things. The parts were going to be expensive so I took the HHR my wife's car in, it has to be dependable. Shelton's started doing some checking and found the throttle body was just dirty gummed up. A good cleaning and $50 later it was done. They could've charged for those expensive parts and I would never known it so I really trust them and I've recommended a couple other friends to them and they've been very satisfied also. Now we are going to set up a maintenance program for our cars which will take away a lot of worries about breakdowns. My wife hauls our great grandkids around and grandkids so we need a car that's dependable. Thank you Shelton Automotive, we appreciate all you do.

Took our fleet van in for service for a number of problems: the steering column was shot, battery was gone and a series of other problems that comes with different people driving a van. Service was excellent! The van drove like a brand new one and the gentleman that helped me at the counter, Brad, very, very professional and all the work was done in a timely manner. Once again we will be coming back for future service, thank you!
