How to Take Care of a Luxury Car

March 19th, 2018 by

2018 Acura RDX

When you have a luxury vehicle like a Acura, you want to ensure you’re taking good care of it with auto detailing. (Luckily, Mike Hale Acura has a detailing specialist.) However, luxury vehicles are not maintained the same way as other models, as the higher-quality materials and finishes need special attention.

If your TLX, RDX, or even MDX has leather seating, you need to not only clean them, but you also need to condition them. After all, your Acura shouldn’t lose its pristine shine. You’ll also want to ensure you’re using the right products on your trims, as opting for the wrong one can leave streaks or even damage the finish. Finally, taking care of the outside is just as important, so be sure you are using a polish on your vehicle to keep it looking shiny and new.

IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Properly maintaining a luxury vehicle like the ILX will ensure your luxury vehicle looks good as you cruise through the often snowy Salt Lake City streets. With the right tips, you can allow your interior and exterior of your ILX to spin heads.

For the seats:

  • Be sure to vacuum the seats first and pick up any debris that may be sitting on top of the material
  • Using a leather cleaner, do a surface clean of the area by wiping it down with a microfiber cloth
  • Using the same cleaner, scrub the seats with a bristle brush to help work out any other dirt and debris that may have accumulated
  • Wipe the area with a microfiber cloth
  • Using a high-quality leather condition, apply it to your seats based on the product’s directions

For the trim:

  • Vacuum the interior of your vehicle first to collect any dust and debris
  • Using a product that’s safe for your interior material, wipe down the trim using a microfiber cloth
  • With a new microfiber cloth, wipe off/dry the area for a streak-free shine

For the exterior:

  • Having the exterior of your vehicle cleaned will help it look new, and you can do this yourself or have it detailed at a car wash
  • After the wash, be sure to apply a safe polish to your model to help it look new and repel dirt and debris
