Spring Car Maintenance Tips
Winter is finally gone, which means it’s time to look forward to the warmer weather of spring. As you gear up for the adventures that spring has to offer, it’s important to consider the damage a rough winter can inflict upon your vehicle. Make sure that your car is in tip-top shape before you head out by following these spring car maintenance tips.
Complete routine maintenance
Owning a car means bringing it in regularly for an oil change. If you went the entirety of winter without changing your vehicle’s oil — or if you’re just due another oil change — then now is the time to bring your car in to Union Park Honda for routine maintenance.
Replace the windshield wipers
Spring showers mean you’ll be using your windshield wipers a lot in the coming months. So why not make sure they’re performing their best? Check your wipers for any cracks or wear and replace them if they appear broken. It’s also a good idea to replace them if they’re more than six months old.
Check the tires
The colder temperatures in the winter can cause tire pressure to decrease, which means you’ve likely topped off your car’s tires with air at some point. As the weather heats up, your tire pressure will increase as well. Make sure to check that your vehicle’s tires aren’t too full and reduce the pressure if necessary. Also, when you bring your car in for its routine oil change, consider asking about tire rotation. This will help them wear down in an even pattern, providing you with a smoother driving experience.
Give Your Car A Spring Cleaning
There’s no better time to tidy up your car than in the spring. Clear out the interior of any trash you might have accumulated and give it a good vacuuming. Also, give the exterior a good scrub to get rid of any extra salt or residue that may have gathered on the paint, glass, undercarriage and wheel wells during the winter months.
Bring your vehicle to Union Park Honda for all of your routine maintenance needs.
