Top 10 Most Sought After Car Features

These features may not be deal breakers when it comes to a car but they still make your driving experience a bit more convenient. So no wonder people are willing to invest a little more if it means driving a vehicle with these modern tech features.
Generally, people worry more about the engine, the overall look, and the price of the car when planning to buy. But you’ve gotta admit that these features are one of the plus points for any buyer when it comes to decision making. These features may not be deal breakers when it comes to a car but they still make your driving experience a bit more convenient. So no wonder people are willing to invest a little more if it means driving a vehicle with these modern tech features.

1. Power Driver’s Seat
It may seem a luxury to some, but having this feature allows the driver to adjust his seat according to his comfort. That will always be important since the level of comfort the driver is in while he’s behind the wheels can make a difference in his driving performance.

2. Heated Front Seats
This one is probably applicable to cold weathered areas. However, it’s still one of the luxury innovations that come with some cars nowadays. It provides comfort and warmth for those who live in snowy or rainy areas. Just keep in mind that there could be plenty of potential car repairs if you decide to purchase a vehicle with this feature.

How many little misses, dents, and scratches have you had to deal with due to an approaching car in your blind spot? Car servicing shops probably have more of these cases than engine failures. No wonder this feature is such a hit.

4. Easy-To-Clean Seat & Floor Materials
Cleaning can take longer than it should if your car is not equipped with this feature. That would be very inconvenient for those always on-the-go people.

5. USB Ports
Due to necessity and preference your gadgets are more likely to always be with you, admit it or not. Having USB ports in the car makes easier to charge or connect your gadgets for music or maps in case you don’t have a built-in navigator in the car.

6. Built-In Navigation System
Maps are great, but when you’re in the car driving around and lost, figuring out a map is the least thing you’d want to do. This feature is truly heaven sent for those who need to travel to different unfamiliar places all the time.

7. Heated Windshield (Auto Fog Prevention)
Having a clear vision on the road is very important for your safety when you’re driving. Fog, on the other hand, can hinder that. This is why most consumers would love it if their car has this feature.

8. Power Front Passenger Seat
Who says the driver should be the only one comfortable throughout the ride? This feature ensures that the front passenger seat has more adjustment options than just recline for total comfort. 

9. Backup Collision Intervention/Auto Stop
A lot of accidents could have been avoided if the market has come up with this sooner. Detecting what’s behind you, hearing an audible alert and seeing a flashing light indicating its oncoming direction, and a system that counteracts failure to act by pushing back on the accelerator could have not just saved lives but as well as the car repair expenses and trouble.

10. Leather Seats
Okay, leather seats aren’t a vital feature that could be convenient or life saving for the driver and passengers, but it doesn’t hurt for your car to look sleek with the help of this feature. Aside from that we all know that compared to cloth, leather is easier to clean.

3 Ways To Protect Your Car Paint From UV Damage

Paint protection in Singapore’s tropical weather will prevent your paint job from fading fast, it also keeps it from expanding and contracting which results to cracking where water or moist can seep through the cracks and create rust
We can’t really help the kind of weather you’ll have in the place you live. Whether you have four seasons or two extreme weathers, all you can do is take extra step to protect your car from these. Paint protection in Singapore’s tropical weather will prevent your paint job from fading fast, it also keeps it from expanding and contracting which results to cracking where water or moist can seep through the cracks and create rust.

1. Limit Exposure To Sunlight
Even a warm garage beats being parked in the sun all day. So whenever there’s an available garage, use it. Not only that your interior will stay cool, but your paint job won’t suffer to premature damage either. Also, when you’re washing your car make sure you don’t do it under direct sunlight. Remember that the water and cleaning agent is already making your paint job vulnerable, don’t mix UV rays into that. And when you can’t find a covered parking lot, use a car cover to at least give a barrier for your car’s paint from the sunlight.

Another way to protect your car is via paint coatings. Paint coatings are relatively new and are one of the up and coming leaders to car detailing in the automobile industry. It serves as an all in one protective layer to a car’s paintwork and UV ray protection is included in its specifications along with many others. It is able to keep your car’s paint looking polished, comparable to that of a showroom standard car and the best thing is that no re-application is required at all as it is highly durable. With this paint coating in place, you will not need to go through the regular hassle of consistently finding sheltered parking lots or frequent waxing sessions for your car. 

3. Wax Your Car
Remember that a good wax will easily last 8 – 10 months on a car that will protect the paint of the car from external elements like scratches, dust, contaminants, and UV rays. To be on a safer side, apply a coat of wax every six months on your car to keep it clean and smooth. 

Car repairs don’t come cheap. Actually they can really be hefty especially if it’s been awhile since your last maintenance and its condition is quite bad already. Take car re-painting for instance, when your paint gets damaged, you can’t just fix the damaged part, you have to repaint the entire car. If you don’t like to spend a huge amount of money trying to fix your car’s paint, better pay attention to this. They may seem nothing but could lead to serious damage in your vehicle if not taken care of.
