Benjamin Franklin once famously wrote,“In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes”(1).

Sometimes, those necessary repairs can be quite costly and buying a new car isn’t always the best or cheapest option. So […]

Everybody loves a clean, shiny car. But not everyone knows the proper way to go about ensuring their car retains that much adored “new car glow.” Some of us even take measures that are counterproductive and can cause long term damage, increasing the likelihood that we’ll have to get a new paint job prematurely.
