Why Spring Cleaning Matters for Your Honda Cars

This has been an odd winter, even here in California. Winter storms have been a constant, which usually means a ton of rain, but this year even included some snow. It’s surreal to see the white, powdery precipitation in this part of the country, but Mother Nature enjoyed some rather adventurous rendezvous this year, didn’t she?

In any event, it looks like we finally can move forward toward spring, where those occasional frigid evenings are no longer a concern and we all can get back to driving our Honda cars with the sunroofs open again.

Still, with that weird winter, we suggest taking care of a few spring maintenance items this month, including the following:

  • Check your tire pressure. Believe it or not, the weather has been cold enough at night these past couple of months to mess with the pressure in your tires. If you haven’t checked those PSI numbers recently, now would be a good time to do that.
  • Give your car a good wash, inside and out. It’s good to really clean out your car at least a few times a year, and spring is as good an opportunity to do that as any other time of year.
  • Consider replacing your windshield wipers. With all the extra rain that pops up over the winter, there’s a good chance that your wipers got quite a workout over the course of the last couple of months. If the rubber is looking worn out or the wipers aren’t clearing rain as well as they used to, considering having our Pacific Honda service department replace them for you the next time you’re in.

Whether you drive a Honda Accord, Honda Civic, or Honda CR-V, this quick spring maintenance checklist can help prepare you for the most fun driving season of the year!
