Spring Car Maintenance Tips


The spring season is official here and you know what that means? It’s time to finally give your car the love that it so desperately deserves! Let’s be perfectly honest….you probably haven’t been doing the best job of that over winter months, right? So, now that spring has officially arrived, it’s time to make sure your vehicle is ready to go now that the weather is turning warmer. Here are our tips for making sure your vehicle looks its best for the wonderful spring weather.

Give Your Car A Spring Cleaning

Spring cleaning isn’t just for your home. You should also take the time to clean your car. So, head to the nearest car wash and not only wash, but wax your vehicle. Doing both of these things are the most important things you should be doing now that winter is over. That’s because all the debris and grime that’s built up on your car over the colder months can not only affect the paint, but it can also impact your vehicle’s finish. Oh and don’t overlook the interior of you vehicle. Take the floor mats out and give them a good shaking, vacuum not only the floor, but also all those tiny crevices that are bound to have crumbs and dirt, and use upholstery cleaner for stains. You should also throw away any trash you’ve collected and dust off the dash and the console. It’s time to make everything in your car sparkle and shine.

Make Sure Your Air Conditioner Works

Spring brings the warmer temperatures and there’s nothing worse than a really unexpected hot day, so you go to turn on your A/C and ack! It’s blowing out hot air. You should make sure that your car is ready for the first warm days of the season by testing the air conditioning system. Turn on your A/C at the highest speeds and make sure everything is blowing out cool. If something doesn’t seem right, make sure to get it fixed before it REALLY starts to get hot.

Inspect Your Windshield Wipers

Springtime means the rainy season. Make sure to check your wiper blades and look for any cracks or wear. If they don’t look great, go ahead and replace them. You should also replace your wipers if you notice any streaking making it difficult to see out of your windshield when it does start raining. Streaking is just asking for trouble.
