Spring is finally here! As the snow melts and the days get longer, it's the perfect time to give your car some much-needed TLC after a long winter. We want to help you get your vehicle ready for those scenic spring drives.

Follow these essential maintenance tips to ensure your car runs smoothly and safely all season long:
  • Give it a Wash and Wax: Winter grime, salt, and sand can wreak havoc on your car's paint. Wash your car thoroughly, paying special attention to the undercarriage. A good coat of wax will add a layer of protection against the elements.
  • Tire Checkup: Spring is a great time to switch back to your summer tires if you use winter tires. Make sure your tire pressure is properly inflated according to the manufacturer's recommendations, and check the tread depth for any signs of wear.
  • Wiper Wisdom: Those harsh winter winds and precipitation can take a toll on your windshield wipers. Replace worn or cracked blades for optimal visibility during spring showers.
  • Fluid Fundamentals: Check all your car's fluids, including engine oil, coolant, brake fluid, and windshield wiper fluid. Top them off or replace them as needed, referring to your car's owner's manual.
  • Battery Boost: Cold weather can stress your car's battery. Inspect the battery for corrosion and clean the terminals if necessary. Consider getting the battery tested to ensure it has enough power for the warmer months.
  • A/C Activation: Spring is when you'll likely start using your air conditioning again. Turn on the A/C and see if it's blowing cold air. If not, it may need to be serviced or recharged.
  • Don't Forget the Inside! Spring cleaning isn't just for your house! Vacuum the carpets and seats, wipe down the interior surfaces, and replace cabin air filters to improve air quality and eliminate lingering winter odors.
