Having worked for some time at a car dealership, I’ve seen a car from the first mile it’s driven to its first oil change and its last. I’ve seen cars that were spotless and well maintained and I’ve seen cars that were so dirty and full of garbage that we could barely stand next to it, let alone drive it into the repair bay. Whether you lease or purchase your car, truck or van, it’s an investment and should be treated as such, from regular oil changes to the occasional wash and wax down to the protective floor mats.
When we purchased our cars, one of the first items we purchased were all-weather floor mats. Whether we lease or purchase, maintaining their cleanliness and condition is key for top resale value, so we love the WeatherTech custom floor mats available at FamilyCarGear.com. Their custom floor mats use digital laser measurements of interior surfaces for a consistently perfect fit. They feature channels that carry debris and liquids away from the edge so that your carpet stays clean and dry and minimizes fluid movement while driving.
The mat’s no fuss design also allows you to easily remove the mats without spillage so that they can be quickly hosed off for a quick clean. With two kids in our car – and the occasional coffee or food spill from us, as well – these are a necessity for both of our cars and likely any car we own in the future.
