Why should you have your vehicle professionally detailed- and why is this a good time to do it?
This winter has been rough on all of us- and on our vehicles. Odds are pretty good that right about now your car is quite dirty- inside and out. It’s also a good bet that right about now you really should have it detailed.
But why not just run your car through the car wash- isn’t that good enough?
At this time of year it’s a good idea to run your car through a car wash, just to get some of the salt off, especially the undercarriage. But that’s not enough. Also, public car washes can actually use some harsh chemicals and a “one-size-fits-all method” to clean just about any type of vehicle that happens to come along. While this is no doubt convenient and cheap, over time using this method alone can actually pose potential harm to your vehicle. So you really need to have your car detailed once in a while.
Over time, your car’s trim, rubber, plastic, and the paint can show some damage that just using an automated car wash can cause. With out detailing service, you can rest assured that your car is being cleaned with such tools as microfiber cloths, gentle cleansers, and is being treated by solvents and solutions that help your paint job to last year after year.
Thorough cleaning, polishing and waxing greatly extend the life of a vehicle’s paint. Your paint protects the underlying metal. If allowed to degrade, oxidation can slowly wear out the paint, making it appear faded and lessening it’s ability to protect the metal underneath. Our detailing service brings your car’s paint back to life and makes it shine.
Another benefit of having us detail you car is something most people don’t thing of- improved lighting ability. Because part of our detailing service is making sure your headlights and taillights are clean and free of damage.Even mild deposits of road grime on your headlights can cause large reductions of available light. This can be potentially dangerous at night. Part of our detailing is making sure your headlights and taillights are clean and free of grime buildup. The first time you drive at night after a detailing and you will notice this right away.
When it comes to your car’s interior- nothing beats our auto detailing service. We know how to get to those hard-to-reach places and clean every nook and cranny. We clean places you might not even think of. Our detailing professionals are also masters when it comes to auto carpet cleaning in order to remove nasty stains and funky odors.
It’s been an usually tough winter, and chances are your vehicle really needs a good detailing.
Luckily, Nissan of Keene has a Springtime Alignment Special right now. (Click HERE for details.)
When you hit a pothole it can cause your vehicle’s wheels to go out of alignment, meaning they are no longer pointing in a parallel direction, which can cause all sorts of problems with your vehicle’s tires and suspension system. The more potholes you hit, the greater the likelihood that your wheels may go out of alignment.
At this point, what you need is called an “alignment”, meaning simply they need to be brought back to pointing in the exact correct direction. Simple as that.
Potholes can also cause damage to tires, steering, and suspension parts, shocks and struts. If a pothole is large enough for the tire to drop into- you can expect damage to occur. Your only defense against the damage caused by potholes is avoid as many as possible and slow down for the ones you can not avoid. If you do hit a pothole with a jolt that jars your teeth it is best to have your vehicle looked at by your servicing mechanic. Even though there may not be visible damage there is the potential for problems.
If you notice that your Nissan is pulling left or right, or that your tire’s tread is wearing off on the inside or outside edge you should have us check it out.
A proper wheel alignment should always start and end with a test drive. The front end and steering linkage will be checked for wear before performing an alignment. The tires should all be in good shape with even wear patterns from proper tire rotation, deep tread and sufficient tire pressure. A Nissan technician will determine, through a series of test and measurements how each tire needs to be balanced and aligned.
We will put your Nissan on our computerized alignment machine, and check what is known as the “toe, caster and camber measurements.”
What these terms mean:
Toe measures the difference between the front of the tires and the back of the tires. This is determined by checking if the front of the tires are closer together than the rear of the tires your tires are toed in. This means your vehicle is going down road slightly sideways. If the toe isn’t corrected you can expect the tires to wear quickly.
Camber is the measurement that looks at how much a tire is leaning in or out. A camber problem will cause wear to the inside or outside edge of the tire.
Caster measures the relationship of the wheels to one another. Most vehicles today require a four wheel alignment. To have your vehicle properly aligned you need to find a shop that has the proper equipment and a qualified technician to perform the service.
A little advice:
Keeping your tires properly inflated will help reduce damage from potholes and other road hazards. The impact of potholes on tires increases dramatically with speed and can cause hidden, internal damage that could lead to tire failure weeks, or even months, later.
It’s best to avoid potholes entirely, but if that’s not possible, don’t brake during the pothole impact. Instead, apply brakes before hitting a pothole and release them just prior to impact. Braking during the impact sets up the tire and wheel assembly for a “solid hit” against the edge of the hole. Less severe damage occurs when a tire is rolling than when it is skidding over a hole during braking.

When your engine is cold, it operates in a way that makes the fuel mixture run more “rich”, which causes excess fuel to spill down past the piston rings and into the crankcase. Over time, this dilutes the oil and breaks down its chemical fortifying packages, which ultimately diminishing the oil’s ability to flow.
This change in viscosity decreases the oil’s ability to protect the internal engine parts. It also causes it to resist vaporization and oxidation. Other damaging effects are acid buildup and ash, causing a further breakdown of viscosity as well as internal sludge buildup.
In plain English: Winter driving is hard on your engine’s oil.
But there is good news. Right now Nissan of Keene is offering a buy one, get one free oil change.
