There are few of us who treat our cars like queens: doing a full new paint job for a single paint chip falling off the side of the car. And then there are few others who have found all sorts of fancy uses for their cars: their cars are their dining places, luggage storage areas, libraries and what not. Both extreme cases lead to causing damage to your cars in the long run. Here are some things you might be doing unintentionally to your Toyota RAV4 that might harm your car for good.
Never eat inside your car. It will not only leave grease marks on the inner surfaces but also lead to bugs and insects finding their way into your car, allured by the crumbs that fall off your food. Also the leftover crumbs will leave behind unpleasant odors in your car.
Don't wash your car regularly with chemicals. Its okay to wash the dirt off with plain water but don't use harsh cleaners regularly as it will weaken the paint of your exterior.
Avoid using all-purpose interior cleaner at all costs. Don't fool yourself into believing that a single chemical will be suitable to clean all the different materials inside your car. It is not recommended to use a single cleaner for different materials like plastic, glass and leather etc.
A simple scratch or stain is not a good enough reason to buff your car. By doing so you are scratching the micron layer off your car, diminishing the shielding power of your paint. If you are really bothered by the tiny blemish or scar over your hood, use paint cleaner or glaze filler instead of buffing.
Claying regularly is a big no-no for decontaminating your car paint. Clay surely does the cleaning part well but at the expense of creating undesirable tiny scratches over the shiny surface of your car. You can also use sealant with your wax to do a flawless job.
Don't take your car to just any garage for detailing. It might land you into the merciless claws of mechanics that pretend to fix your car but end up screwing all the nuts and bolts of your vehicle and taking advantage of your innocence. You sure don't want that to happen to you.
Use your flexible spine to place your luggage, grocery bags and backpacks on the ground instead of placing them over the roof of your car as it may scratch the paint, or in worst cases dent the outer surface of your car.
