Winter is rolling out, and spring will take its place before we know it. Is your car ready for a road trip? Check out what Ron, our service manager, has to say when it comes to spring car maintenance tips!
Change the Wipers
Do you use your windshield wipers during winter? If you do, odds are the rubber wiper blades have taken quite a hit from the snow, ice, and cold. That can leave the blades unable to clear the spring showers from your windshield.
Changing your wiper blades is something most drivers can do at home. A replacement set doesn’t cost much compared to the cost of a fender bender because you couldn’t see.
It’s important to make sure your view of the road is free and clear. Your windshield wipers are the first line of defense to an unobstructed view.
Check the Battery
Your car can’t start without a functioning battery. Performing a battery inspection can help avoid any unexpected surprises. Open the hood and perform a visual inspection for any bulges or bumps. Tighten all the connections and scrape any corrosion off of the posts. If it’s been more than three years, consider replacing the battery altogether.
Wash the Exterior
A harsh winter can lead to salt and debris buildup that can harm your car’s paintjob. Wash every inch and crevice of your car. Once the paint shines in the sunlight, apply a coat of wax.
