Top 5 Car Interior Cleaning Tips!

Keeping a car clean inside is probably one of the most difficult things to do. There are tons of tiny cracks, vents, and other hard to reach places. Plus, there’s that area under the seat where items go to get lost forever. Fortunately, we have compiled a list of 5 incredible hacks to keep your car interior looking it’s best. People may even think you got it detailed!


Instead of spending money replacing your floor mats, try just washing them instead! Spray some stain remover and throw them in your washing machine. It’s just that easy.


Instead of buying leather cleaner, or special upholstery wipes, use olive oil!! It is less expensive, and it’s totally natural. Simply apply a small amount of oil onto a clean rag and rub it in circles on your leather. Be sure to apply sparingly, as a lot goes a long way!


There’s no need to rush to the car wash to get rid of all those dead bugs off your windshield after a long road trip. All you need is a few dryer sheets! Simply wet it, and go to work! The dryer sheets work magically, and all of the bugs come off easier than they would with a water hose. Plus, they don’t have to be new dryer sheets, a used one works just as good.


If the cup holder’s are the dirtiest part of your car, prevent the mess from ever happening! Place a silicone cupcake liner in the bottom of your cup holder. This will catch any crumbs, spills, and keep your cup holders from getting sticky. Just throw them in the dishwasher when it’s time to clean!


Instead of spending hours vacuuming up all of the animal hair on your seats, use a squeegee and a spray bottle instead. Mist the spray bottle (full of water) on the seats and use the squeegee to loosen the hair. All that’s left is to vacuum up what’s left!

The totals have been tallied, the votes counted, and ultimately, there can be only one. For 2017, it’s the 2017 Nissan Titan. The All-New Ground-Up Design, First-Class Amenities, and Incredible Feature Set Lead Nissan Titan to Top the Field of Eight contenders.

TRUCK TREND’s Pickup Truck of the Year award program is an invitation-only shootout that is only open to all-new or significantly revised pickup trucks for the upcoming model year. For 2017, the field of vehicles included eight entries from six companies and consisted of one variant from each company’s eligible product line.

“With the launch of the 2017 Titan, Nissan has set out to redefine itself as a force in the pickup market,” says TRUCK TREND Editor Jason Gonderman. “By combining a richly appointed interior and deep feature set with a stout drivetrain and respectable capabilities, Nissan has reemerged as a player in the ½-ton pickup market. Combined with an industry-best 5-year, 100,000-mile warranty and low cost of entry compared to the competition, Nissan looks to have found the winning combination with the all-new Titan.”

The Nissan Titan won TRUCK TREND’s 2017 Pickup Truck of the Year award only after completing a demanding weeklong test comprised of more than 1,200 miles of performance testing, hauling, towing, fuel economy calculation, and off-roading—all important disciplines in which truck owners expect their vehicle to be competent.

Over the course of the 1,200-mile test, the experts had ample time with each vehicle to form qualified opinions regarding important factors such as interior ergonomics, seat comfort, technology usability, build quality, and features and benefits of each truck, while also logging fuel usage to gauge real-world economy throughout the diverse evaluation.

With testing completed, the staff at TRUCK TREND crunched the data and found the Nissan Titan led in two out of seven scoring categories: Highway (15%) and Empirical (20%), while placing solidly in the remaining categories of Interior (10%), Exterior (10%), Off-Road (15%), Towing and Hauling (15%), and Functionality (15%). Ultimately, it was the Nissan Titan, tested in the Platinum Reserve trim, which scored the highest number of points and earned the nod from TRUCK TREND’s jurors.

“TRUCK TREND’s Pickup Truck of the Year award is not determined around a conference room table,” says Sean P. Holman, content director for TEN: The Enthusiast Network’s Truck and Off-Road Group. “This is a real-world evaluation of pickups as seen through the eyes of truck experts and enthusiasts. Anchored in data, the test is conducted across many disciplines by staffers who drive and evaluate trucks every day with a goal of determining which vehicle offers the best pickup truck experience for the money. TRUCK TREND prides itself as being the credible, go-to authority for light-truck reviews and information for the industry.”

The strong power and throaty sound of the 390-hp 5.6L Endurance V-8 won unanimous praise from the judges, giving the Titan ample power delivered through a seven-speed automatic transmission. The V-8 engine note was there when you wanted it, and quiet when you were cruising, never intruding on the comfortable, well-equipped cabin. Top it off with AMERICA’S BEST TRUCK WARRANTY – 5 YEARS/100,000MILES BUMPER TO BUMPER! 5 Year/100,000 Mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty that surpasses all competitors you can be sure that your TITAN will always be ready for the job.

What propelled Nissan’s new full-size to the top was its combination of capability, comfort, value, and all-around practicality as a daily driver. In our eyes it represented the best overall truck experience for the money. For those reasons, we’re proud to name the Nissan Titan as Truck Trend’s 2017 Pickup Truck of the Year.

AUTOWEEK’S 2017 Nissan GT-R Premium review: The deal of the century, again!

It’s a bear in traffic. When driving the GT-R as it should be driven, no problem. Stomp the gas, it takes off like a rocket and you just have to get ready for second gear, which comes in about two seconds. But in traffic, holy smokes, in traffic it’s a rocket just itching to take off. I sat on the freeway in bumper-to-bumper traffic for an hour yesterday and boy does this thing just want to run free. It’s the dual-clutch’s fault as usual, but this is one car that I wouldn’t give up the DCT because when it’s stretching its legs, it’s awesome.
