Getting Your Vehicle Ready for Spring


Automotive Car Care Service For The Spring

Spring is the perfect time to have Audia Chevrolet inspect your car and to ensure it's up to date with all required maintenance.    Below are a few basic tips to get you started for spring driving.

§  Hitting potholes can throw your car’s front end out of
    alignment. If your car is pulling when driving, then
    you may have a problem and need to have your 
    alignment checked.
§  Rain is a common spring driving hazard.  Tires can
    hydroplane on a layer of water; losing contact with
    the road and causing the vehicle to skid, slow down
    during a rain storm. 
§  Spring rain can also dampen visibility.   It’s important
    to check all vehicles operating lights.  These lights are
    important and help you to see, but also serve as a way
    to with other motorists. 
Cleaning the Dirt and Grim from Your Vehicle - 
Use these car washing tips & tricks
The warm weather is the perfect time to give your car a good cleaning inside and out.

1.  Use a sponge or mitt designed for automotive  use a
     lamb's wool mitt is ideal.

2.  Start at the top of the vehicle and move down; (the bottom accumulates the most dirt,
     and starting at the top will reduce the possibility of dragging dirt to the other parts of
     the car).
3.  To avoid scratching your paint, repeatedly clean your wash rag and refill the bucket
     water if it's very dirty.
4.  Use a different wash rag for your car than your tires.
5.  In the same manner that you washed from the top to the bottom, spray off the soap
     starting at the top and move down the vehicle.
6.  Spray the wheel wells thoroughly as well as underneath the vehicle to remove dirt
     and debris.
7.  Avoid water spotting by drying the car immediately with a chamois or a 100% cotton
     terry cloth towel.
8.  For finishing touches, a microfiber cloth works nicely.

Try This:
 -  Wash your car in a cool, shady area to avoid streaking and to reduce water spotting.
 -  Use car wash soap and not dish soap (some soaps can strip the wax and damage the
 -  Fill a large bucket with lots of water.  Dirt will settle to the bottom, cleaner water will
    stay at the top.
 -  To remove stubborn stains such as insects, road tar, tree sap and bird droppings, try
     using undiluted car wash soap.  Using a sponge, apply the product full strength directly
     onto the spots, let penetrate for 3-5 minutes then wash off with water.
