How to Care for Your 2019 Mazda MX-5 GS

Cleaning The Top

The Mazda MX-5 GS comes with a cloth top. First and foremost, when cleaning a cloth top you need to make sure that the products you’re using are intended for cloth surfaces. In terms of the brush, you’ll want to select one with medium stiffness. This will ensure that you can effectively loosen dirt and debris without being too harsh on the material. Using a cloth-safe cleanser and brush, clean the top until all the dirt is removed, then you can give it a quick rinse. If you’re going to apply any protectant, make sure it’s dry before doing so. Then, make sure the protectant has dried before driving or closing the top.

Waterproofing the Top

You’ll be amazed at how well your new MX-5 GS repels water and contamination. That’s because the fabric top is chemically treated during the manufacturing process. Unfortunately, this treatment’s effectiveness will fade over time depending on weather and usage. To keep your convertible in good condition, keep an eye out for any signs of a reduction in water repellence. If you notice any, a coat of fabric top protectant can help your top remain waterproof, provide UV protection and increase longevity.

Winter Storage

Unfortunately, an Ottawa winter isn’t exactly conducive to convertible driving. For most people, this means storing their convertibles while there’s snow on the ground. When it comes to storing a vehicle, there are certain things you should always do. Convertible or not, you’ll want to check the fluid levels, fill up the gas tank, cover up the exhaust pipe and inflate the tires before putting the car away. The main difference with a convertible is making sure the top is up, even if it’s in a garage.
