Motorists can take several measures to make sure their cars stay in top condition, it has been claimed.

Keeping a vehicle clean is one way of making it look newer than it is, suggested Europcar, as is removing water stains once it has been washed down.

Maintaining a safe distance from the driver in front is likewise crucial, as this can help reduce the wear to the brakes associated with sudden stopping, it advised.

Upholstery cleaner can also help used car owners ensure their vehicle stays in a good condition, as can avoiding smoking while behind the wheel, said Europcar.

Being aware of what is under the bonnet can additionally go a long way, with the company advising people to ensure they check both engine oil and coolant levels.

The AA recently suggested that UK motorists risk facing hefty repair bills by failing to keep an eye on their coolant levels.ADNFCR-2576-ID-19351258-ADNFCR
