Spring Car Care and Cleaning

February 23rd, 2015 by

It may not feel like it quite yet, but we assure you that spring is on the way, and Bosak Honda Michigan City wants to make sure you know how to clean off all of the salt and sludge that has accumulated on and inside your car. So we have some tips to make your spring car care and cleaning a bit easier whether you’re driving a brand new Honda or a gently-used vehicle.

Getting Ready for SpringCleaning Tips

The first thing we’re going to suggest you do may seem a bit obvious: wash your car. We recommend washing by hand to make sure you get every inch of your vehicle clean, but if you don’t have the time, be sure to go through an automated carwash once, give your vehicle a once over to make sure everything’s been cleaned off, and then go through the car wash a second time.

After you’ve got all the dirt and grime off of your vehicle, your next step should be mitigating any damage to your interior. A car’s carpet can take a beating from the salt and sludge your shoes track in, and while you can detail your vehicle’s interior on your own, we always suggest out drivers get their vehicle professionally detailed to put it in top shape.

Finally, even if you don’t care about the look of your car, you should inspect key elements of your vehicle that the cold can wreak havoc on, including:

  • Windshield wiper blades
  • Tire treads and pressure
  • Hoses and belts
  • Brakes and brake pads
  • Batteries, wires, and plugs

If you ever hit a patch of ice and slid into a curb or took a dip into a deep pothole, be sure to have your suspension and alignment inspected and adjusted too. Topping off all of your fluids is a good way to wrap up your spring car care and cleaning routine.
