Car Washing 101

Our team at Ed Martin Acura has a goal to help our customers care for their vehicles. Keeping your car washed on a regular basis is necessary to maintain a visually pleasing exterior, which will increase its resale or trade-in value.

How often you should wash your vehicle depends on several factors. If you primarily keep your vehicle parked in a garage, and the weather where you live is mostly mild throughout the year, then washing your vehicle once a month is probably enough. If you have a long commute, then you may need to wash your vehicle weekly. You may also need to wash your vehicle on a weekly basis if you live in an area where there is extreme heat.

Washing your vehicle routinely will improve fuel efficiency. A clean car is 10 percent more fuel efficient than a vehicle that's dirty. Germs travel through dirt, so a clean vehicle might also help prevent you from getting sick.
