    Tips for Getting Your Luxury Vehicle through the winter

    Last updated 9 months ago

    Luxury vehicles from top brands are designed to provide dependable performance in the most brutal climates. But the benefits of world-class winter-weather resilience cannot be enjoyed without regular vehicle maintenance. For winter maintenance tips that will ensure that your luxury car performs the way it was designed to, read on.

    Purchase Winter Wipers

    Winter wiper blades are an essential winter maintenance item, as they are more effective at wiping away the slushy mixture of snow, ice, and water that will cut down on your visibility. Install a high-quality pair of wiper blades before winter and be sure to have the wiper fluid inspected and replaced it necessary.

    Test the Battery

    Winter puts a great deal of stress on your luxury car’s battery. Ask Texas Cars Direct to test the battery’s ability to hold a full charge. If the battery cannot hold or charge or it is approaching the end of its warranty period, replace it this winter before you end up stranded with a dead battery.

    Flush the Antifreeze

    The ratio between water and antifreeze in your luxury car’s radiator can become out of balance over time. If there’s not enough antifreeze, the radiator fluid could freeze during the winter. Flush and refill the radiator’s fluid reservoir to be on the safe side.

    Check the Tires

    Check the air pressure once per month and make sure it is at the recommended air pressure levels, found inside of the owner’s manual. Have the tires inspected at a car repair shop to be sure you have enough tread for wintertime.

    Wax the Exterior

    Protect the beautiful exterior of your luxury vehicle by washing it weekly, and waxing it every month. Wax the headlamp casings too, as this prevents headlight haze that is both unattractive and unsafe.

    What Does "High Octane" Mean?

    Last updated 9 months ago

    Many of today’s luxury cars require high-octane gasoline fuel, oftentimes just referred to as “premium” gasoline. But what exactly is high-octane gas, and what makes it premium? The octane rating of gasoline is an indication of how much the fuel can be compressed before it spontaneously ignites. When gasoline ignites because of compression rather than the spark from the spark plug, it causes engine knocking, which can damage an engine. Luxury cars oftentimes have high-compression engines that achieve better efficiency and performance than regular-compression engines. These high-compression engines should be fueled by high-octane gasoline. If fueled by regular 87-octane gas, the high-compression engine inside of a luxury car can become seriously damaged.

    Lojack Vehicle Recovery System

    Luxury vehicles are more prone to theft than other types of vehicles, simply because of their value.

Lojack is the only vehicle recovery system operated by the police, and boasts an average recovery time of two hours or less. Lojack Stolen Vehicle Recovery even comes with a 24-hour money-back guarantee.

    Dent Zone Repair

    At TexasCarsDirect.com we offer paintless dent repair services that will virtually erase door dings and small dents from your vehicle without the need to paint-match, re-paint, or re-surface. Not only is our approach less expensive than body shop repair, but it’s also more likely to bolster the resale value of your luxury car.

    Tire & Wheel Shield

    Damaged tires and wheels are expensive to repair, which is why we offer a road hazard protection plan to protect you. If your luxury car’s tire or wheel is damaged by a road hazard, our affordable plan will protect you from the unexpected repair cost.

    Chrome Wheel Upgrade

    Many people who are shopping for a luxury car see a vehicle they like, but hesitate to buy it because they do not like the wheels. At TexasCarsDirect.com we will be happy to let you exchange the current wheels for chrome wheels.
