Spring has sprung, so it’s time to start the warmer weather out on the right foot. So, why not give your car a good spring cleaning? Here are some tips to help you get your car clean for spring drives in High River, AB.
Give the exterior some love. From salt to hail to general winter grime, your car’s exterior has undergone a beating during the winter. One of the big ways you can spring clean your car is to clean its exterior. This can help reduce the damage winter can do to your vehicle over time, reducing the likelihood of rust and more.
Don’t forget the car’s undercarriage. Over the winter, salt can sit on the bottom of your car. This can cause it to rust down the road, so while you’re spring cleaning your car, make sure you give the undercarriage a thorough cleaning, too.
Tidy up your interior. Trash can gather over the winter, especially when it’s too cold to clean out your vehicle regularly. Gather any rubbish that’s littering your cabin, then give it a thorough vacuuming. Also, don’t forget to take out your floor mats and clean them as well, using a carpet cleaner if you have carpet or warm, soapy water for rubber mats.
Spring is right around the corner in High River, AB, which means it’s time to start thinking about spring service for your car. Make sure you schedule a service appointment with High River Toyota today, and start thinking about your spring car maintenance checklist.
Get new oil and oil filter
Oil changes are part of your vehicle’s regular maintenance, so now is the time to get your vehicle’s oil changed. Bring your car into High River Toyota, and we’ll be happy to change it for you.
Change out your windshield wipers
Cold temperatures and ice can cause your windshield wipers to crack and wear. Change your windshield wipers when spring arrives, so they’re in tiptop condition as the rain grows heavier.
Check your filters
There are a range of filters used throughout your vehicle, from your engine air filter to your cabin air filter and beyond. Make sure these are all clean, check for damage, and replace them if you need to.
Keep an eye on your tires
Your tires are what help your vehicle stay on the road. As the temperature changes, so will your tire pressure. You should check the pressure of your tires, and make sure it’s within the recommended range. Also, make sure your tires aren’t wearing down too quickly or unevenly.
