How to Maintain Your Rolls-Royce Car
Some could argue that Rolls-Royce is the epitome of luxury cars, with features like the meticulous paint job and the ability of a customer to pick from a massive array of color options, tailor-made upholstery, the Starlight Headlines, and of course, the iconic Spirit of Ecstasy. All of these are entirely customizable. It’s part of what makes the Rolls Royce a true icon of the automobile industry.
It is an owner’s responsibility to ensure your Rolls Royce keeps that showroom look and performance. We wanted to share some tips to help you keep your vehicle in tip-top condition.
Keep Your Car Clean
Drivers would agree that the 23-coat paint finish that comes with the car is something worth preserving. The dazzling luster of your Rolls can be protected by regular washing and waxing, which you can have done for you or you can DIY with the proper equipment and cleaning tools designed for this type of exclusive paint job.
The same cleaning advice goes for the interior of the car, too. Vacuuming the floor, seats, and wiping surfaces can get rid of accumulated dust and dirt. You can also seek the service of a professional car cleaning business specializing in luxury vehicles for a deep cleaning session.
An extra tip is to ensure to protect your car from excessive exposure to sunlight, rain, or other extreme weather conditions that can damage your car’s exterior. Keeping your Rolls inside or under cover will greatly enhance the paint job’s longevity, luster, and depth.
As impressive as the Rolls-Royce is, you have to be aware of the fact that it is designed not for speed or rugged performance. This was designed for your luxury and comfort. So, while your Rolls-Royce Phantom truly is a majestic ride, you generally want to avoid potholes, road debris, or going off-road or on gravel paths.
Watch Your Tires
Whether you drive a Ghost or a Dawn model, your car comes with high-performance tires unique to its make and model. The first step in maintaining tire health is to ensure that your tires are inflated to the manufacturer’s recommended pressure levels. If not, you would often get low-pressure warning alerts by the tire pressure monitoring system in the car. Also, you can look for signs of uneven tire tread wear, as it can mean the tires are due for alignment or replacement altogether.
Regular Maintenance at Authorized Workshops
With a luxury car of this calibre, you want to maintain its intricate systems and mechanical parts to the best of your ability. It is generally recommended that you bring your car for full-body service every 12,000 miles or 12 months, whichever comes first.
An oil change is recommended between every 3000 to 7000 miles. Things have been made simple for the driver with the Rolls-Royce CarData. The data provides an overview of car telemetric data (including vehicle mileage, coolant temperature, check control messages, and more) that is sent back to Rolls-Royce as part of the Roll-Royce Teleservice services. As a driver, you are entitled to this data and can request it any time you wish to review it.
It is also very important that you take your car only to authorized workshops with Rolls-Royce-approved technicians for servicing. Also, try to avoid any form of unapproved aftermarket tuning or performance enhancement, as you risk losing maintenance support from the manufacturer.
