Windshield Repair, Are All Chips And Cracks Repairable?

6 Check the oil in the used car you are buying to make sure it has been changed. You can check inside the windshield, there will usually be a sticker telling when the next oil change is due. Check the back exhaust to make sure there is not excessive black residue around the opening–this would indicate that it may be burning oil.

The next best thing that you can do is to buy a used car from a dealer. It may not be as cheaper as buying from private party, but 100 times more reliable. Even some dealers give warranty on the used cars they sale. They buy the used cars, clean them up, do a thorough checking of the engine and repair any damages, dents etc before putting them on sale. You don’t have to take the car to a mechanic for inspection, worry about the smog certification. But never forget to check the approximate price through KBB and have a CarFax report handy before making a deal with the dealer. Normally, good dealers don’t keep cars for sale that have any major issues like bad accident history, salvaged title etc.

For those who don’t know, the windshield wonder is a product designed to make cleaning the interior windows of your car easier. This has always been a huge pain for me because I can never reach the bottom of my windshield and hate twisting over the seats to jam a rag into the corners of my rear window. So something to make this easier would come in handy.

Make a deal. Whether sold to a private party or to a salvage yard, you’ll want to strike a deal. Come up with a price that satisfies both parties and complete the transaction. Likely, you’ll have to sign a lien release and you’ll also have to sign over the title. Remove the license plates, registration, insurance information and your personal effects. Accept a check or cash for your car.

My epiphany happened when I saw my maiden aunt leaning against the garden hedge. I waved. She did not wave back. My “aunt” was a roll of floor linoleum that somebody had propped against the garden hedge. Since an ability to see oncoming traffic and other objects, like lampposts and maiden aunts, is required for safe driving, I knew that my time to visit Auto Glass had come.

It is time for reality check: unless you begin to do something about your junk car now, you’ll never get this job going. Instead, why not sell your car and make some money? That’s right, even junk cars can fetch some cash, money that can come in handy elsewhere.

Get your wipers. The wipers on your windshield are one of the leading causes for scratches and windshield damage. As sand and dirt turn out to be stuck to wipers they are able to scratch the protective surface with the glass. Take washer fluid along with a soft rag and combine them to clean the outside with the windshield and also the wipers.
