Winter takes a toll on your car. Now is the time to make sure your car is road-ready for Spring so you can drive safely into the season.
Take your car in for a tire check. Have your tires rotated and the air pressure checked. Doing these things will make your tires last longer and ensure they’ll grip on rain slicked roads.
Replace your wiper blades. Winter can be tough on your wipers. Spring rain showers are coming and you want to be ready.
Ensure your car’s brakes are checked. Do you hear a grinding sound when you step on the brakes? Does your brake pedal feel spongy? These are all signs that you may need brakes.
Change your car’s oil. Changing the oil regularly will ensure your engine performs well and lasts longer. That means less chance of a breakdown.
Check all of your fluids. Multiple fluids are needed for your car to function properly. Many people don’t realize their car’s fluids are low or dirty until the fluid fails and the car is damaged. It is always a good idea to check the power steering, brake, and transmission fluid. You should also check your coolant and windshield washer solvent.
This is a great time to check your car’s air conditioning before summer arrives. Test your air conditioner by running if for about 15 minutes. When the summer’s heat arrives, you will be ready.
Last but not least, change your cabin air filter. The cabin air filter is important because it filters the air you breathe in your car. During the spring allergy season is a great time to replace this.
Your car is now ready for Spring! Happy Driving!
