Responsible car owners know that keeping your car clean all year round can be a bit of a hassle, but it has to be done. Most drivers tend to hold back on cleaning the car during winter weather for obvious reasons. Spring brings warmer weather, which means this is the perfect time to clean out your car. Here are a few spring car cleaning tips from us here at Highway Ford!

  • Trunk – Some drivers tend to load their trunk up with items that they don’t want to take inside to limit their time in the cold. Remove the items and put them in their proper place. Take the time to check the spare tire while you’re at it, while adding an emergency kit wouldn’t be a bad idea.
  • Wheels – The wheels of a car tend to collect dirt, grime, and salt throughout winter. Remove the hubcaps and scrub them clean, then move on to the tires and wheel wells. Once everything is nice and shiny, replace the hubcaps, tighten the lug nuts, and check the tire pressure.
  • Wax – Washing your car is a given, but waxing is a good idea as well. A sleek coat of wax can help protect paint and keep your car looking pristine. Take your time to do the job right, and your car will shine in the sunlight in no time!
