Tips to Maintaining Luxury Car


Luxury cars are investments. They’re not meant to be driven every day, and they require more attention than your average ride. If you treat your luxury car as a high end investment, though, it will last longer and provide you with more enjoyment over time. Here’s how to maintain your vehicle so that it performs at its best level:

What is the maintenance schedule?

  • Check the owner’s manual for recommended maintenance intervals.
  • Check the manufacturer’s website to see if they post service schedules.
  • Check the service adviser’s website and calendar for information on when they will be in your area.

Check your warranty information.

When you purchase a luxury car, it is important to check your warranty information. A good warranty can be the difference between getting your car fixed at no cost and paying thousands of dollars to repair damage caused by normal wear and tear. The most common types of warranties are “powertrain” and “basic”, but there may also be additional coverage options.

The powertrain warranty will cover the engine, transmission (or transfer case), differentials and any other moving parts that are connected directly to the drive train. If any of these items break down within specific periods of time (typically 100k-150k miles) they’ll be covered by your warranty so you won’t have to pay anything out of pocket for their replacement or repair. This type usually starts when you take ownership of your new vehicle until it reaches its odometer reading or has been driven for ten years from when it was first sold by an authorized dealer; whichever comes first!

Keep it covered.

A car cover is an inexpensive way to keep your vehicle in top condition. You wouldn’t leave your life’s savings in the bank vault, so why would you leave your luxury ride unprotected outside?

A car cover keeps dirt and debris from accumulating on the exterior, protecting it from scratches and dings caused by road salt or abrasive particles in the air. It also helps prevent UV damage that can cause paint fading, cracking and peeling over time. If you live in a region where snow is common during winter months, a car cover will help protect against frost damage that could result from moisture trapped inside when parked overnight while covered with snow. Some people even use covers year-round if they store their vehicles indoors or want to keep them looking pristine between washes!

Some people use tarp-like sheets of plastic instead of full-coverage canvas covers but these don’t provide enough protection for long term storage; it’s best to invest in a good quality water repellent material such as Sunbrella canvas material (which also happens to be super durable).

Maintain your car’s appearance.

  • Keep your car clean.
  • Avoid leaving it outside and exposed to the elements, especially in harsh weather like rain or snow.
  • Don’t leave it in the garage either, as exposure to heat can cause damage over time.

Keep a record of all repairs and maintenance.

Keeping a record of all repairs and maintenance is essential to maintaining your luxury car. If you do not keep a record of the work that has been done on your car, when it needs to be serviced next or if there are any issues with the car, it will be very difficult for you to find out what may have happened.

Keeping records also allows for tracking improvements in performance over time. This can help you determine how well different service providers are doing their jobs. For example, if one mechanic always seems to give you squeaky brakes but another one never does this, then perhaps it’s worth giving them more business in the future!

Take care of the battery.

The battery is the heart of your car’s electrical system. If it isn’t in good working order, it can cause all sorts of problems. Fortunately, there are a few simple things you can do to keep your battery healthy and ensure that it will last for years to come:

  • Check the charge regularly. You should check the charge of your battery at least once a month or whenever you go in for an oil change or tire rotation—it takes just a minute or two and should be part of any routine maintenance schedule. Don’t worry if you don’t have all the tools on hand when checking; dropping by an auto parts store is easy! Just make sure not to get fooled by how many times they say “charge complete.” The number of complete charges has nothing to do with how much power remains in the battery itself (as long as they’re using an accurate gauge). To truly test whether or not there’s still juice left in there, bring forward some common sense—does everything seem like it’s working normally? If so then great! But if something seems off then maybe it’s time for some fresh new energy sources…

Be alert for unusual engine noises or smells.

  • Check your oil level regularly, and keep it at the recommended level. You should also maintain a good quality oil filter in your car to prevent contaminants from entering the engine.
  • Check tire pressure regularly, as tires that are underinflated could cause a blowout, which can be dangerous.
  • Check coolant level regularly to ensure that there isn’t any leaks or damage to the cooling system.
  • Replace battery every 5 years or so; if you have an older vehicle (over 6 years old), replace it sooner than later because batteries lose their charge over time due to corrosion buildup inside the battery case and terminals.* Replace belts and hoses when they start squeaking because this means they’re wearing out.* Inspect brakes for torn linings and rotors/discs for cracks.* Make sure tires are properly inflated (30psi for front tires; 35psi for rear tires)

Use the services of a dealership, if possible.

If you’re in a position to do so, we recommend that you use the services of a dealership. Dealerships are often staffed by trained mechanics and have access to the proper parts for your vehicle, as well as providing warranty coverage and service history documentation.

Treat your luxury car like a high end investment.

You have to treat your luxury car as a high-end investment. If you want it to last, you need to take care of it. This means getting regular maintenance, keeping an eye on things like oil levels and tire pressure, and making sure that the car is always clean inside and out.

It also means having your mechanic check over your vehicle after any sort of accident or incident—even if it doesn’t seem like there was much damage done! It never hurts to be cautious when something goes wrong with your car; after all, the last thing you want is for the repairs from an accident or incident to cost more than the value of your entire vehicle!


Whether you have a luxury car or not, it’s important to keep it in good condition. As we’ve discussed, luxury cars are investments that should be taken care of properly so they can last for many years.
