4 Things You Didn’t Know Your Car Can Do

Whether you’ve had your car for a long time, or it’s relatively new, you’ll know that car companies are constantly working on improving their models and makes, to make the driving experience better for the customer.

You might think you know your car if you’ve had it for a while – but do you really? There’s a lot more to a car than you might think, and we have a feeling that there are some things your car can do that you didn’t know about. Let’s take a look.

1. They Get Rid of Pollen

Are you someone who has allergies that tend to flair up when spring comes around? Something that you might take for granted in your car is its ability to filter out pollutants and pollen, to prevent them from getting in through the air conditioning.

If you like to keep the windows up and the AC on, then you can thank your car for filtering clean air. The majority of modern cars are equipped with filters that can get rid of most pollen and pollutants that might come through when you turn the air on.

2. New Windows Clean Themselves

If your car is one of the more recent models, then you might be about to discover that your windshield is capable of cleaning itself. How annoying is it to have to clean the windshield yourself every week or so to get rid of all the rain, dirt, and other particles that find their way onto it?

If your car is new enough, it should come with hydrophobic windows. This type of window can repel everything from rain and dirt to even oil. Say goodbye to having to wipe down your windshield every time you take a long trip.

3. They Can Get You a Loan

Are you currently in a bit of a financial bind and in need of a quick bit of cash to tide you over? Especially in the current climate, there will be a lot of people out there feeling the pinch. Getting a loan that can bridge the gap temporarily is easier said than done – or is it?

Believe it or not, your car can actually be used as collateral to take out a short-term, personal loan. There are a lot of car title loans out there within your local area, and the best part is that the lender doesn’t need to see your credit history. Your car as collateral is enough.

How much gas do you think you've wasted in your life sitting in that daily morning commute? A lot more than you want to think about. Luckily, modern cars know that you often deal with traffic woes, and want to make the trip a bit more economical.

This is why a lot of modern cars are equipped to stop the engine when the driver’s foot is resting on the brake for a long time. Once your foot comes off the pedal, the car will start again.

Your Car is Surprising

Owning a car is about so much more than just getting from A to B these days. Next time you head out the driveway, check to see what else your car can do that you didn’t know about.
