April Car Care Month at Landers Toyota NWA

No April’s Fools here, it’s National Car Care Month! Time for some springtime TLC for your vehicle. To keep your vehicle in tip-top shape, along with regularly-scheduled maintenance it also needs routine upkeep. If you’re not really sure where to start, we’ve got you covered. Landers Toyota NWA in Rogers, AR is here to assist our customers by offering some helpful tips for vehicle spring cleaning!

SPRING INTO ACTION

Let’s begin by clearing out the extra pair of winter gloves, ice scraper, and tire chains. Then clean all the windows, vacuum the upholstery,  and give your vehicle a once-over with car cleaning wipes for a fresh feel. To keep the integrity of the interior surfaces, wipe down the interior with a protectant to shield the vinyl or leather from UV rays. No matter what season we’re in, it’s a good idea to keep some items like a flashlight with fresh batteries for emergencies. Until the Covid-19 pandemic is a thing of the past, it’s also a good idea to stash a package of disposable face masks and a bottle of hand sanitizer.

FOR CLEAN EXTERIOR

Bird poop is public enemy number one. Waiting too long to clean bird droppings or bug guts off your car will damage the exterior paint or clear coat. One helpful cleaning tip is to spray a little WD-40 on the area to get bird poop off your vehicle without damaging the exterior paint. Let it sit for one to two minutes, then rinse or wipe it away with a soft cloth – microfiber is our fav.

GET INTO THE ROUTINE

Along with an oil change, check your car’s cabin air filter to see if it needs to be replaced. Not only does a fresh air filter keep you breathing easy, but it also doesn’t allow dirty air to enter the engine. While the hood is up, clear out the dead leaves and check to see if you have enough windshield wiper fluid.

These are just a few spring cleaning suggestions to keep you and your ride healthy. At Landers Toyota NWA in Rogers, our customers are our main priority.
