Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Car

Spring Cleaning Tips | Avenue Nissan | Toronto, ON

With winter finally winding down, it’s time to remove all of the dirt and grime from your vehicle. Our team at Avenue Nissan put together the following spring cleaning tips for your car.

Start on the exterior

If you plan on washing the outside of your car by yourself (instead of going to an automatic wash), start from the top and work your way down. But before you rinse the whole vehicle, scrub the tires and rims. When it’s time to dry, use a clean microfibre towel so you don’t scratch the paint.

Get rid of trash

Once you move inside, gather any pieces of trash and clutter into a trash bag. Consider finding new homes for non-essential items that have made their way into your vehicle. Don’t forget to look under the seats and floor mats as well as in the trunk.

Interior cleaning

Cleaning the interior should consist of wiping down all surfaces with appropriate materials. If you have leather seats, be sure to use a leather cleaning solution that won’t harm them. Wipe down everything, including the dash, steering wheel, air vents, centre console, gear shifter, and door handles. Don’t forget the inside of the windows, too!

Another great way to keep your car in great shape as we head into a new season is to ensure that you’re staying on top of its maintenance schedule. Stop by Avenue Nissan in Toronto, ON for a routine check-up and other helpful services.

Spring has sprung and flowers are blooming all across the country. This means one big thing — getting your car ready for warmer weather. If you’re looking for some spring maintenance tips to keep your car running smoothly all year round, make sure you keep these in mind.

Don’t forget to switch your car’s tires

As the weather warms up, you will have no use for your winter tires. If you haven’t already, make sure you bring your vehicle into Avenue Nissan to switch your winter tires out for all-season ones.

Spring clean your car

Over the winter, salt and grime will build up on your car’s exterior. Make sure you give your car a good cleaning both in and out — and don’t forget to hose down the undercarriage, too, so you can help prevent rusting in the future.

Fill up your fluids

Check that your vehicle’s fluid levels are all where they should be. This includes oil, coolant, and windshield-wiper fluid.

Check your brakes

Your brakes probably experienced a lot of stress over the winter while dealing with slick, icy roads. Make sure they’re in tiptop condition and get them checked out to ensure you can stop when you want to.

Warm weather is finally here, which means flowers are blooming and people are getting outdoors to stretch their legs. This also means it’s time to make sure your car is ready for the spring. Here are a few spring car maintenance tips you should consider to keep your car running smoothly.

Remember to take care of routine maintenance

Every several thousand kilometres, you should bring your vehicle into Avenue Nissan for routine maintenance. Use the warmer weather as an excuse to get your car’s oil changed, a new oil filter, and a tire rotation so your car can keep up with your spring adventures.

Change your windshield wipers

Spring weather means rain, which is why it’s important that your windshield wipers are in top-notch condition. Ice can cause your wipers to crack or break in other ways, which is why the spring is such a good time to replace them. After all, having the best visibility possible when you’re out on the road is important!

Take care of your tires

Colder weather can do a number on your tires. As the weather warms up, you might find that your tires’ pressure increases. Make sure your tire pressure remains within the manufacturer’s recommended range. Also, check your tires’ tread to ensure you have a good grip on wet roads, and switch out your winter tires for all-season or summer tires.
