DETAIL YOUR OWN CAR: SAVE MONEY AND KEEP YOUR CAR LOOKING BRAND NEW

 DETAIL YOUR OWN CAR: SAVE MONEY AND KEEP YOUR CAR LOOKING BRAND NEW
 RADNOR, Pa., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Ever wonder how your neighbor keeps his car looking showroom new?
 Or why some cars five to 10 years older than yours actually look newer? The answer is that these car owners invest time and money to detail their cars. "Detailing" is one of the hottest words in car care today. Although auto insiders have used pro-detailers and have known of their methods for decades, most car owners are only just now discovering the miracle of detailing. By detailing, you can keep your car looking its best for as long as you own it.
 If you need more than that "new car look" for motivation, detailing your car will also save money. Regularly detailed cars cost less to run; spotting leaks (fuel, oil, water) worn hoses and fan belts, and dangerously misaligned tires is easy during detailing and can save you much time and money by preventing major problems and costly repairs. A car that is "clean" both inside and outside will be worth more when you decide to trade or sell it.
 Another compelling reason to keep up your car is that you will probably own it for a much longer period of time. In 1971 the average age of cars on the road was 5-3/4 years. Today, the average is almost 7-1/2 years. In today's economic climate, it makes sense to keep your car longer. Auto detailing protects your investment by prolonging the life of your car. But having your car professionally detailed can be almost as expensive as repairs, costing anywhere from $60 to $100 each time. That is why more and more people are learning how to detail their cars themselves. By doing so, you can accomplish professional detailer perfection at a fraction of the cost.
 A new book by Chilton Book Company "Auto Dealing: The Professional Way" is a recommended purchase for anyone who details his or her own vehicle. Whether you're a professional or "weekend detailer" "Auto Detailing" will take you through repairs and restoration, from scratched windshields to ripped carpeting to under-chassis rust. Tips from the pros, prepping secrets, and a list of common detailing products will help you detail your car from bumper to bumper.
 Detailing is easy to do, so do it yourself and save yourself the inflated fees charged by professional detailers. You'll love both the way your car looks and the extra money in your pocket.
