Fix damage prior to end-of-lease inspection, or get the dealer estimate for repairs first?

Tags : 

A Question: “I’ve never leased a car before, so I have no idea what the end-of-lease inspection is like. My 2014 Nissan Leaf is in good condition overall, but I backed into a rock in my driveway one day and scratched /cracked my bumper. I got quoted at 450 to fix the damage without replacing the bumper (bondo for the crack and a new paint job). Here’s my question: do I fix this damage prior to the end-of-lease inspection so that it’s simply not an issue, or do I wait until after the inspection and do it through Nissan-approved channels?

How Often Do I Need to Wax My Car?

If your car is usually parked in a garage or otherwise sheltered from the elements, waxing it twice a year should be enough to protect the paint finish.

How to Lengthen Your Battery Life

Tags : 

Here’s a hot tip about car batteries: Warm weather is the time for major car-battery problems. Heat, not cold, shortens battery life. The average life of a battery is three and a half years, and even shorter in warmer climates.

Excessive heat and overcharging are the two main reasons for shortened battery life. Heat causes battery fluid to evaporate, which damages the internal structure of the battery. A malfunctioning component in the charging system, usually the voltage regulator, allows too high a charging rate. That can mean a slow death for a battery.

Cooling System Maintenance

Tags : 

Water turns to a vapor or boils at 212°F.  For every pound of pressure we put water under, it raises the boiling point 3 degrees.  15 lbs of pressure would raise the boiling point of water from 212°F to 265°F.  (These numbers are all altitude sensitive.)  So 15 lbs of pressure created by the radiator cap multiplied by 3.5 degrees will move water’s boiling point upwards 45+ degrees. So under pressure, your radiator liquid will boil at 245-265°F and not at 212°F.
