Take Your Car Out For a Date

Valentine's Day is coming up; in just about two weeks! Are you prepared? Well, don't worry, we have a plan for you, and this year it includes your vehicle, too. However, Turlock's backroads and farming areas see a lot of mud, potholes, and debris. All of that creates a problem, and it should be maintained regularly to give your vehicle the longest life possible, especially if it has a date ahead of it!


We have had some pretty good rain this year in the California Central Valley, which surprised many vehicle owners. Wet conditions create all sorts of problems for our vehicles. So, it is just as important as ever that we care for our vehicle as we care for our family. Here are a few great ideas on how you can take your car out for a date:


Get an Exterior Detailing - Consider this like a mani-pedi for your vehicle. If you have never had an exterior detail job done on your vehicle, you don't know what you are missing. A well-done exterior detailing can have your vehicle looking practically new, in some cases, even better than it looked when you bought it. A quality exterior detailing might include professional-grade washing, buffing with special compounds, and dent/ding removal. I'm sure we all know someone with a big beautiful truck that could really use a date like this, especially in Turlock!


Get A Drink - By that, we mean to check your vehicle's fluids and have them adjusted accordingly! Our vehicles get thirsty just like we do, and this might seem like a basic step, but it is crucial for keeping your vehicle functioning at its best level. Our auto repair shop can help you exchange your fluids, replace your filters, and recommend the right viscosity of fluids for you.


Pick Out Some New Tires - Like taking your date out on a shopping spree, nothing will make your vehicle happier than a new pair of shoes…er, tires, haha! If your current tires are in good shape, consider servicing and rotating them. Adjusting the air pressure, fixing any irregularities, and rotating them will greatly extend their life and benefit the rest of your vehicle as well. Nona's Auto Center can handle all of this for you, and we can order tires to fit your specific needs.


Plan a Picnic - How often do we take the time to plan a picnic? Probably almost never! But what a great way to bring your loved one and your beloved vehicle on a sunshine-filled play day. There are countless great opportunities in California's Central Valley, just pick one, pack the tri-tip, and head out!


Make Valentine's Day even more special this year and spread the love to your vehicle, too! Just like our human relationships, the more work we put in, the more healthy it is in the long run. While you make your plans, make sure to consider Nona's Auto Center in Turlock!
