If you’ve given your house a good spring cleaning, it’s time to think about doing the same for your Jaguar car. Here are four important tips to keep in mind:

Be Careful with Your Cleaning Supplies

To make your vehicle shine, you have to start with the right supplies. Most of the cleaning products you have in your home are meant for things like counters or dishes — but they aren’t good for your car. You’ll need cleaning products specifically for your vehicle, so you don’t hurt the paint job.

Don’t Just Focus on the Outside

Once the exterior is lustrous, it’s time to make the interior match. The first thing to do is throw away trash and clear out any clutter. Next, take out your floor mats and hose them down. While they’re drying, grab a vacuum and clean the floors and seat cushions. Getting something to treat the upholstery — particularly if you have leather seats — may be a smart idea, as well.

See What’s Worn Out

If you haven’t made any upgrades in a while, chances are good that some are due. For example, take a close look at your windshield wipers. They may be worn or frayed and in need of wiper blade replacements. If your floor mats have seen better days, it could be time to get some new ones.  

Make Sure Everything Under the Hood is Running Well

Once you’ve gotten the cosmetic things taken care of, it’s time to focus on your car’s mechanics. If you are overdue for maintenance, scheduling it should be the next thing on your spring-cleaning list. The things your car may need include an oil change, tire rotation, or brake inspection, and you can get all of these and more at the service center at Jaguar Northfield. We can even pick your car up at your home and return it when the work is completed.

Don’t wait until next fall to get your Jaguar car in top shape!
