As the temperatures rise and the flowers start blooming, it’s time to start thinking about giving your vehicle a fresh start. Follow these spring car maintenance tips to ensure you’re ready for warmer weather.
Switch out your winter tires
With spring comes warmer weather, which means you’re less likely to find heavy snow fall on your morning commute. Because of this, now is the time to bring your vehicle in to Downtown Toyota so we can switch out your winter tires for fresh all-season ones that can take on spring rainfall with ease.
Give your car a cleaning
From road salt to icy windshields, winter weather can really damage your car’s exterior. Give your car a thorough exterior scrubbing to get rid of any salt and winter grime that could potentially cause rust. Make sure you clean out the interior, too, to start spring off on the right foot.
Check the fluids
Ensure your car will continue running smoothly throughout the new season and check your car’s vital fluids. This includes oil levels, coolant, and windshield-wiper fluid.
Get your brakes looked at
Make sure you can stop whenever you want to stop, and get your brakes checked regularly. Potholes and slick road conditions can put more pressure on your brakes, so having a professional check them over in the spring is a good idea.
As you prepare for warm-weather travel, following these tips will help improve your peace of mind and preparedness out on the road.
