How to Prep Your Car for Spring

March 5th, 2019 by

Ohio winters can do a number on your ride. Snow, slush, and salt take their toll on everything from tires to wiper blades. Now that spring is just around the corner, it’s a great opportunity to give you Nissan vehicle a thorough once-over to undo winter’s damage. Here are some tips on how to get your car ready for spring from Fred Martin Nissan.

Thorough Wash

Driving on salt-laid streets can cause corrosion to your vehicle, resulting in unsightly rust and other problems. When the warmer weather hits, power wash the exterior and undercarriage of your car. If possible, utilize a jack to raise the Nissan more for a thorough cleaning.

Additionally, pop your hood open and wipe down the engine with a soft mitt and warm, soapy water. Remove all leaves and other debris and remove any crusty residue from your battery with a toothbrush, water, and baking soda. Of course, we are more than happy to assist with these services at our Nissan dealership serving Akron, OH.

Wax On, Wax Off

A deep cleaning isn’t the only thing your Nissan car needs. Waxing it in addition will help make the paint shine and get rid of any unsightly smudges. There are many benefits to waxing your car, including adding an extra layer of protection to your paint job and diminishing the appearance of scrapes.

Top Off 

While you’re spring cleaning your car, take the time to ensure it’s operating at its best too. Top off your fluids, put air in your tires if needed, and take it for a tune-up at our service station.
