Prepare Your Vehicle for Spring

Now that Winter is behind us, it’s time to prepare your vehicle for Spring! Spring cleaning isn’t just for the house: no matter what you drive, winter can be tough on your vehicle. Spring maintenance will get you ready for a summer full of adventures! Whether you plan on taking a road trip, going to your usual vacation spot, or just heading to the beach, you’ll be happy you took your vehicle in for a spring tune-up.

Here are a few important aspects to focus on:

Check your tires. Checking your tires and making sure they are inflated to the manufacturer recommended air pressure can help conserve gas. The cold air from winter can cause tire pressure to fluctuate significantly, so spring is the perfect time to get them checked and adjusted accordingly.

Get your tires rotated. Make sure your tires are rotated regularly and checked for excessive wear. This will help extend the life your tires and make sure that they wear down evenly. Safety first!

Replace windshield wiper blades and fluids. Snow and ice can damage or wear out your windshield wipers. If you notice that your blades are streaking, they probably need to be replaced. Also make sure to top off your windshield wiper fluid.

Check the battery. You’ll want to get your battery checked after a long, cold winter to ensure that your vehicle’s electrical system is working as it should. It’s better to replace the battery as it’s getting weak versus waiting for it to stop working. That way, you won’t be left stranded in a beach parking lot this summer!

Get an oil change. Regular oil changes can make a huge difference in making sure your vehicle has a long, healthy life!

Bringing your vehicle in for a spring tune-up will save you a lot of headaches later in the year. 

Summer is a great time for an adventure and you want to make sure your vehicle is as ready for it as you are! When you bring your vehicle in for maintenance at any of our Herb Chambers dealerships, consider also getting a full interior and exterior detail. Nothing is better than a nice clean, shiny car! We’ll be sure to get all that leftover salt and sand off your vehicle, too. It’s like a spa visit for your favorite ride.

Spring is here, so go enjoy it!
