Spring Clean Your Vehicle

Looking for a little pick-me-up after a long winter? It might be time to spring clean your vehicle for a like-new driving experience. At Nissan of Silsbee, we’re firm believers in taking good care of our cars, so we’ve compiled a list of tips for the ultimate automotive spring cleaning experience.

Carpet and upholstery

Start by clearing any debris off the seats and floors. Use a vacuum to get the little pieces of dirt and dust in the crevices. Take out the floor mats and spray them with stain remover before scrubbing them down. While those are drying, you can use a damp towel to wipe down your seats.

Windows

Clean windows aren’t just important for aesthetic reasons; having clean windows also does wonders for visibility, which is important for your safety, especially during a rainy spring. Wash your windows and windshield thoroughly with glass cleaner. Top off the windshield with Rain-X for extra weather protection. Replacing your wipers every spring is a good idea, but an alternative is to wipe them down with rubbing alcohol to prevent streaks on the windshield.

Exterior

It’s important to give your vehicle a good exterior scrub after a long winter. Grime like road salt builds up over the cold months and can linger underneath the vehicle and cause corrosion or rusting. Give your car a bath with a pressure washer and be sure to get that underside. Finish it off with a layer of protective wax that will keep your car’s exterior looking fresh well into next winter.

Top Destinations for Spring Break in Texas

It’s finally that time of year, when you plan a week away from life’s usual routines and spend it with family and friends. Whether you live in the Lone Star State or not, it’s worth noting that there are plenty of great options for spring break in Texas. Here are some of our favorites.

Dinosaur Valley State Park

Dinosaur fans – and even just those who can’t get enough of Jurassic Park – will be into a visit to this state park in Glen Rose. Look for dinosaur tracks left behind along Paluxy River, a reminder of prehistoric times. Beautiful nature and fresh air make this park a spring break winner.

Six Flags Over Texas

Who doesn’t like the thrill of a coaster or the view from a high ride? Six Flags Over Texas offers everything, from gentle thrills to heart-pumping rides not for the faint of heart. This Arlington, Texas amusement park is a great location for a short spring break getaway.

Galveston Island

About two hours away from Nissan of Silsbee, Galveston Island is one of our favorite places to catch some sun. Take in the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico while you stroll along the boardwalk, catch a concert, or have a drink at a local bar. This beach is definitely down to party, making it perfect for college students looking for a break. However, with plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy, Galveston is great for families too.
