A clean car not only looks great, but it can actually have a longer life than one that’s neglected when it comes to cleanliness. Road debris like salt and grit can wreak havoc on your paint job, while a dirty interior can decrease your car’s resale value. Here are some tips to keep your car clean and organized and maintain its value.
Portable trash can. Trash
in your car is inevitable, especially if you have kids or pets. With a portable
trash can, you can throw away wrappers, receipts, and other junk on the road
and empty it when you get home.
Dash duster. Your
dash gets dusty easily, and if it’s black or grey it’s especially noticeable.
Keep a microfiber duster in your door pocket or glove compartment to wipe away
dust as soon as it settles.
Headrest hooks. You
might keep you bags or purses on the passenger seat if you’re driving alone,
but a sudden stop can send your belongings flying. Instead, buy a couple of
headrest hooks and hang your bag on the seat next to you — or even behind you.
Wax. Your car’s
exterior needs frequent washing to get rid of everyday dirt. Finishing up with
a coat of wax will help protect your paint from fading and oxidation (i.e.
rust). Try to apply wax once a month to keep your car exterior protected

If 2019 is the year for a new family car, we think you should choose the Buick Encore. It’s the perfect family car due to its well-equipped and comfortable interior.
The Buick Encore is a compact luxury crossover, but don’t
let the “compact” name fool you: The Encore has a surprising amount of interior
space, plenty for up to five passengers plus some cargo. You can fold down the
rear seats and the front passenger seat for extra versatility when you need
additional cargo space. Thanks to its small dimensions, it is easy to drive
through crowded city streets and park in tight spots.
The strong, responsive powertrain includes a turbocharged
engine paired to a smooth six-speed automatic transmission. The standard StabiliTrak Electronic Stability
Control System and available AWD provides extra grip on the road, even during
Buick prioritizes safety, which is why the Encore comes
standard with a 10-airbag system, Passenger Sensing System, and a rear vision
camera. Available options include rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot
monitoring, and other advanced safety aids.
The Encore comes well equipped with cutting-edge technology
and desirable features like the eight-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth®
connectivity, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, five USB ports, a rearview
camera, and OnStar® with 4G LTE Wi-Fi® capabilities.
