More Than Keeping Up Appearances

Often overlooked or considered an act of vanity, cleaning a vehicle’s exterior is more than just a matter of appearance. It’s a matter of protection, proper maintenance and even safety. Keeping a regular winter car wash schedule will help keep your car on the road longer — and it will look better, too.
