The start of spring means time for spring cleaning, and this year, you should extend that luxury to your vehicle. Taking the opportunity to tidy up your ride inside and out will help get you ready for the warmer months ahead and all the road trips and adventures they entail. Here are some tips for how to spring clean your car.
Forget the Trunk
The trunk or cargo area of your vehicle may be
the easiest to neglect because you only tend to look at it when you need it.
But you’ll want to make sure that it gets the right amount of TLC as well. Clean
out any trash or debris, vacuum and wipe down any surfaces, and make sure that
things like your emergency kits and first aid kits are organized and
the Nooks and Crannies
The carpeting and upholstery will no doubt get
the bulk of the attention when spring cleaning your car, but you should still
pay special mind to the smaller details. Your dashboard glovebox, center
console storage, door storage pockets, and seatback storage should all be
considered, whether it’s removing out-of-date paperwork or getting rid of clutter.
the Windows and Wheels Last
When you go to wash the exterior of your car,
make sure you do the windows and wheels last. Washing the body will bring down
all the grime and dirt over these surfaces, making them the last spots you
should clean. Clean up the windshield with some glass cleaner at the end, then
deep-clean the wheels for that like-new shine.

According to the 2019 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study, no mainstream brand in America was more reliable in the 2016 model year than Toyota. Toyota tied for second in the study, sitting just behind luxury brand Lexus earning similar scores to luxury brand Porsche, with a score of 108 problems per 100 vehicles (PP100). This was far better than the industry average of 136 PP100 and 7 PP100 better than the next highest-ranked mainstream auto brand.
The J.D. Power VDS monitors the number of problems
experienced per 100 vehicles in the past 12 months among owners of vehicles
that are three model years old. By seeing how frequently 2016 vehicles are
experiencing problems three years on from purchase, J.D. Power is able to
determine which brands are most reliable overall.
Not only did Toyota rank highest of all mainstream brands,
but it also took home the titles of Highest Ranked Midsize Car for the Toyota
Camry and Highest Ranked Large Light Duty Pickup for the Toyota Tundra. Several
other Toyota vehicles ranked among the top three in their respective segments:
The Toyota Corolla ranked second among compact cars, the Prius v ranked second
among compact MPVs, the Sienna ranked second among minivans, the Avalon ranked
third among large cars, the RAV4 ranked third among compact SUVs, and the
Highlander ranked third among midsize SUVs.
