Spring is a season of growth, renewal, and more. Now that the dreary winter is behind us, you may be wondering what you can do to revitalize your car. It can be tough to focus on car maintenance when you probably have a lot going on. Now is the time to freshen up your vehicle for the warm weather ahead of us!
Tip #1 - Wash your car, and don't forget the underside
A car wash can simply lift your mood and boost your confidence. Whether you take it to the car wash or DIY it at home, please remember to get the underside of your vehicle. A spay underneath your car will get rid of the dirt, salt, and grime that has been collecting there for months, which will prevent damage.
Tip #2 - Clean the headlights and taillights.
Have your headlights and taillights crystal clear to enable maximum visibility. Dirty or hazy lights can make it difficult for your eyes when driving at night. With clean lamps, you'll feel safer on the road no matter where you go.
Tip #3 - Don't miss the interior
A vacuum cleaner will come in handy with this tip. Getting rid of the accumulated dust, dirt, crumbs, and junk can make a huge difference in the ambiance of your car. It'll make getting into your vehicle a more pleasant experience.
Tip #4 - Change Floor Mats
Your floor covers may need a spray down, since it probably collected filth over the months (or years). Make sure you lift the floor mats and clean the bottom of them too.
Tip #5 - Replace the Windshield Wiper Blades
Most people tend to forget about maintaining their wiper blades. But if they are streaking or skipping on the windshield, they should be changed.
Tip #6 - Clear out the trunk
Most people pile up junk in their car trunk, and the springtime is the best time to sort through all your items. Get rid of the things you don't need, and it'll help boost your MPG too!
