It’s time to take stock of the damage that has wreaked havoc on your vehicle during the winter months. From tire pressure to checking your oil, everything you need to know to ensure your vehicle is ready for this Spring!
Visit a Car Wash
Spring cleaning isn’t only for your house. The winter especially can be tough on cars.If you go to a carwash, spring for premium, because you won’t want to miss any nooks or crannies.
Check Your Tires
Did you know you can save money on gas by making sure your tires are filled up to the manufacturer recommended air pressure? Just by keeping the pressure regulated, your car is better able to distribute and conserve gasoline.
Replace Wiper Blades
If your wipers are streaking, replace them. New wiper blades are inexpensive and simple to replace, so you won’t even need to pay someone to do it for you.
Change Your Oil
Regular oil changes can make all the difference in making sure your car has a long, healthy life. If you’re running low, top off and head over to a quick-change location to have the oil changes and get a new oil filter put on.
Clean Your Floor Mats
Many car owners now use synthetic rubber mats that are specifically designed to deal with the rigors of rotten weather.
It’s easy to ignore the buildup of filth when winter is raging, but springtime is the right time to take those mats out of the car and give them a thorough washing. If need be, replace them with a new set.
Check Your Maintenance Plan
Cars need to be serviced at regular intervals, so what better time to dig in the glove box and pull out the owner’s manual or go online to see what you’re due for, given the mileage on your vehicle’s odometer.
While you’re at it, make sure you’re prepared to renew your registration if that task is coming around in the next six months. Make it simple and use the online registration services available to you.
