Take Care of Your Acura & Kiss Winter Goodbye During National Car Care Month

April 7th, 2015 by

SnowWinters can be tough in the great Garden State. This year saw a bit of snow, which means there’s probably pesky salt and post-winter grime all over your car. With the warm weather rolling around and with National Car Care Month upon us, it’s the perfect time to shake the winter blues out of your vehicle.

At Acura of Denville, our NJ Acura dealer, we recommend starting your car’s spring-cleaning off right with a trip to the car wash. During the winter, road salt gets splashed all over the exterior of your vehicle and tracked into the interior on the soles of your shoes. Salt can lead to rust, so it’s important to give your vehicle a good scrub. When it snows, it’s only a winter wonderland for so long before the snow turns to slush and starts to mix with the dirt and other debris on the roads; this slushy mixture gets tracked into your vehicle by your shoes and can leave your vehicle’s interior looking dingy. While you’re at the car wash, make sure to get your interior rugs shampooed!

Cold weather not only messes with tire pressure, but also alignment. Potholes left behind by snowplows don’t do your vehicle’s tire alignment any favors. Check the pressure in your tires compared with the recommended tires pressure in your owner’s manual; fill the tires as needed. Next, be sure to bring your vehicle in to the service department at our dealership for a tire alignment. Improper alignment can cause uneven wear and cause you to have to replace the tires on your car more frequently – which can be expensive.
