Whether you’re gearing up for a hike or just ready to wear shorts again, now is a great time to evaluate if your Honda is ready for all of your spring and summer travels. Your friends here at Freedom Honda, the Colorado Springs Honda experts, are here with the best tips for getting your car ready for spring.

Clean. Spring cleaning isn’t limited to your home! Your Honda probably has accumulated several layers of clutter and grime over the winter months. Make sure to pay special attention to the following areas:

  • Steering Wheel. Many people completely forget to clean the steering wheel, the surface you have the most contact with in your car! Take the time to disinfect the surface with car-specific wipes.
  • The dash and the center console. Be sure to take car-specific wipes and clean the various surfaces of your car – dash, HVAC controls, and cup holders. If you have a touch screen, be sure to avoid using a wet-wipe on the screen. Microfiber cloths are best for touchscreens.
  • Carpets and seats. Be sure to vacuum all the dirt and grime off the seats and in the carpets. If you have leather seats, be sure to use a leather conditioner. This will help your seats look like-new for longer.

Replace the windshield wipers. Your Honda has probably endured a lot of winter weather this year, which means your windshield wipers are probably ready to be replaced. Being able to clearly see is essential, so replace your windshield wipers as soon as possible.

Change the oil. Can you remember the last time you had your oil changed? If not, it’s probably time to have it done. A quick trip to Freedom Honda’s award-winning service department can have this done for you in no-time at all.

Change the tires. Do you use special winter tires on your car? With warmer weather just around the corner, now is a great time to start thinking about when you will switch to summer or all-season tires.

Don’t forget the fun stuff! Driving a Honda is all about having an adventure, so always be ready for one! Whether that means carrying water guns or hiking shoes, keep fun gear in your car so you’re always ready for fun!
