Deciding Whether Refinancing vs. Trading Is the Right Choice
After searching for the right vehicle, it feels great to find one that you love. Yet, you can later realize that you can’t afford the payments each month. Now, you are faced with the decision of whether you should trade it in or refinance it for lower payments. Here are the factors you should consider before making your decision.
When you look at the loan you used to purchase your vehicle, review it to see if it has a reasonable rate and repayment timeline. If so, a refinance may not make much of a difference in helping you afford the payments. It would be better if you traded it for a car that cost much less.

By being informed about your vehicle and understanding as much as possible about how your vehicle works, you can ultimately protect the longevity of it. Having an understanding of the most common fluid leaks can prevent you from becoming stranded on the side of the road.

Scratches are inevitable. As a vehicle owner, we want you to know how to address these issues as they arise. Here is how touch-up paint can rid your vehicle of any superficial flaws.
The cleaning and preparation process is critical. Paint adheres better to rough surfaces, so sand the surrounding area with emery sandpaper or 220 grit. Use water to clean the surface during and after the sanding process. Once you have allowed the area to dry, follow the directions given on the touch-up paint container.
If you are fixing a deep scratch, you will need to apply a thin coat of primer to the exposed metal after you finish sanding. Once dry, use at least 600 grits to sand the primer. From there, you can proceed to paint the area using an applicator or an appropriate-sized paintbrush.
Cloudy headlights can be a problem on any road trip. There are some home remedies that might fix the problem however. One of the home remedies is insect repellent. For this to work, you need to find repellent that contains DEET. You spray the repellent on a rag instead of directly to the headlights because it can affect the paint negatively. Then you take the soaked rag and rub it on the light. Scrub for as long as you need to. This could be between 5 to 10 minutes, or even longer. After you are done, then wipe the excess off with another cloth.
You can also use polishes and abrasives. You need to be careful however if you use sandpaper, because this abrasive could actually damage the headlight. The idea with the abrasive is to bring the line of the surface along with the line of scratch,...
