spring car maintenance

Spring cleaning shouldn’t just apply to your home! Cold weather is winding down, and it’s time to put away your gloves and ice scrapers. Get your vehicle in tip-top shape this spring with our car care tips.

We recommend the following services:

Wash & Wax

Thoroughly clean your vehicle, inside and out. Winter often brings a buildup of salt, grime and dirt on the exterior, which can affect its paint and finish. Thorough cleaning will prevent rust or other problems. Additionally, it’s a good idea to periodically vacuum your carpet and seats as well as get rid of extra dust in the vehicle’s interior.

Check Tire Pressure

Tire pressure tends to decrease with cold weather and rise with warm weather. While you might’ve needed extra air during the winter, it’s important to check that your pressure is on point for the spring. Your tire pressure should match the manufacturer specifications to ensure great drivability and fuel economy.

Inspect Wiper Blades

With spring comes spring showers. Make sure your wiper blades are working properly before you’re stuck in a storm.

Look Under the Hood

Now is the perfect time to check that your car’s engine is still in great working order and that belts and hoses haven’t been damaged by the cold winter weather. If you’re unsure of what to look for, stop by and see us!
