Spring Clean Your Lexus in Chicago, IL

Spring Clean Your Lexus in Chicago, IL

When you have a luxury ride like a Lexus on your hands, you’ll want to keep it fresh and ready for your cruises at all times. However, we know what it’s like driving around Chicago in the wintertime. Your vehicle is bound to have collected dirt and grime from all the snow and slush we get. That’s why spring is the perfect time to clean your Lexus from top to bottom, inside and out! Follow our tips from McGrath Lexus of Chicago to find out how to get your automobile back into supreme shape.

Exterior

First things first, make your way to the nearest car wash to clean off the entire exterior of your vehicle. This will help eliminate months worth of caked-on dirt from the crevices of your shell, wheels, and lights. If you'd prefer to wash your car at home, that can also be done with just a few supplies. Gather up a hose, bucket, sponges, towels, and soap, and get to work. Remember to wash from the top down, and don’t aim a strong jet of water at your car because it might chip the paint! Then, once your model is squeaky clean, a good wax will have it looking fresh for the future. If you really want to take it a step further and have your ride looking like it did on the day you bought it, then bring it to our body shop! Buffing out scratches and fixing dents can really make an impact on the overall look of your Lexus.

Interior

Next, you can move on to cleaning the inside of your vehicle. First, take out all of your floor mats and hose them off with soap and water. Then, move on to wiping down all of your flat surfaces. We highly recommend utilizing microfiber cloths instead of paper towels, as they reduce streaking, increase shine, and are gentle enough to handle all kinds of surfaces. Use disinfectant, or a soap and water solution to wipe down your dashboard, storage trays, cupholders, and more. All of your windows should be polished with an automobile-specific glass cleaner. Then, you can finally vacuum your carpet and replace your floor mats. All you need is a car freshener and your vehicle will be ready for your downtown cruises!

Leather

Finally, we want to cover the very specific trim of leather. Leather is a valuable material, and as such, should be treated with extra care. Instead of using normal soap and water or any regular disinfectant wipe, we recommend using something very gentle. Makeup remover liquid or gentle oils can be used to freshen up any leather steering wheel, shift knob, chairs, or other leather-trimmed items. We also recommend treating these materials with leather conditioner, to ensure that everything is as supple and sanitized as can be!

Taking the time to spring clean your Lexus in Chicago, IL, can make a world of difference! We hope our recommendations help you freshen up your ride. If you have any questions, please give McGrath Lexus of Chicago a call or contact us online.

Great experience overall but few points to improve: 1. It took overall ~4 hrs to test drive and completing all paperwork. They kept asking water/coffee but nothing to eat. They should have at least offer some sort of snack to eat :) I was starving and paper work kept going! 2. I think they should work on final handoff. At the end technical specialist was trying to walk me through the car but she told all obvious things - mirror adjusting, cup holder, AC etc. nothing specific to Lexus and she kept saying I don’t know what else to tell. Also they should have printed the car details with the list of all options and equipments. And should have shown all of that while giving a walk through of the car... kind of checklist. That’s what Mercedes does. But overall great experience. After car wash, it was looking brand new and fantastic. Thanks to the store workers and my sales person Bill Tacker. Cheers guys!

The reason why I have been a loyal Lexus customer is because of the service provided by the personnel at this McGrath Lexus. Mark McLawhorn is excellent and he truly cares about your needs as a customer. He goes up and above the call of duty. He personally makes sure that I experience nothing but convenience when it comes to servicing my car(s). And his support team is excellent. I only speak to Mark when it comes to servicing my car. Additionally, I only deal with Mike Tumilty when it comes time for a trade in. He takes the time to know what you will like and what you will not like. And he works his magic to make sure I am satisfied when I leave the showroom. Doug Bell is also great as he not only listens but provides great advice so that you can make an informed decision. They have a great team. It’s like a family and I feel confident that they are always considering my best interest at heart. You can't buy the type of service and commitment to quality and excellence that these individuals provide. Please note that I have had a number of cars from this McGrath Lexus for a couple of decades now and I am blessed not to have ever had any issues with any of their cars and that has to do with which dealership that you go to when you are making such an investment. You not only invest in a car but the Team behind the car. This is the dealership and the Go To Team.

They were prompt to answer any questions. I ended up purchasing from another dealership and did not do any negotiating so I can't attest to that aspect of their company. Front end service was good though.

We purchased a used Toyota from them and had a great experience. The salesman, Bill, was very professional and most everything went smoothly, including financing rates. The only negative was that we had to wait a long time for the financing piece (3 hours).
