Month: April 2017

It’s that time of year where it’s warming up enough for you to spring clean your car, so here’s a guide to getting your vehicle in tip-top shape.

Spring Clean Your Car

Clear Out Trash

This one’s simple – bring out a trash bag or two and just toss everything you need to stop carrying around in the vehicle with you. Fast food wrappers? Old receipts you said you’d use to make a budget and never did? Empty coffee cups? Throw it out.

Have a “Keep” Box

Sometimes we leave stuff in our car that we actually love, like an extra pair of shoes or something that we forgot to bring inside. Take a moment to collect these things and put them in a box for keeping. Don’t forget to check the trunk!

Scrub and Vacuum

Scrubbing happens first so you can get all the dirt stuck in nooks and crannies. Then, bring in the vacuum cleaning. It’s a good idea to take out the mats and power wash those, too.

Wash Everything Top to Bottom

Car wash time! Make sure you use a soap specially formulated for washing automobiles or else you could damage the protective coating on your vehicle. Make sure you wash the undercarriage too to get all the winter gunk off.

Maintenance

Wipers, oil change, fluids, tire rotation and checking for tread wear—just a few of the little details to keep up on when it comes to maintaining your car.

 

We at Don Robinson Mitsubishi know how important presentation is when it comes to a vehicle, so trust us when we say that it’s worth it to spring clean your car.

Leasing a vehicle is an excellent option when you’re looking to get a brand-new ride without breaking the bank. You only have to cover the cost of depreciation instead of the full price. This gives you lower monthly payments and a lower initial down payment. If you’re looking to push your savings any further, the Mitsubishi Mirage just topped the industry as the most affordable car to lease – which means you can get all the modern amenities you want for as low as $219 a month*.
