For some people, waxing your car is a luxury reserved for supercars and car owners that treat their cars like babies. However, we would like to note that waxing is actually great for any car owner, providing an extra protective layer and potentially increasing your car’s value.
According to Popular Mechanics, waxing your car can help add a layer over the clear coat and paint to prevent fading and scratches. It also adds a nice shine, making your car stick out in any lot. This can increase value because even if your car works like a charm, if it has faded paint, it will draw a smaller offer.
Waxing is also great for the winter seasons, especially in areas that use salt or gravel on the road. These do damage to your car over time, causing severe rust and corrosion. Add a layer of wax, and you can have some peace of mind driving on salty roads.
Waxes have changed over the past few years, and it’s easier, quicker, and more reliable than ever to polish your ride. You can stick with natural, muddy-like waxes, but synthetic brands offer additives that increase the shine. You should also consider spray-on wax (just avoid the windows).
