As the winter season draws to a close, it's time to prepare your vehicle for the warmer months ahead. Whether you're planning spring and summer road trips or simply shuttling the family to various activities, ensuring your car is in top condition is crucial. Follow these five steps to get your vehicle ready for spring.

  1. Undercarriage Wash: Winter road salt can cause significant damage to your car's underbody, leading to rust and corrosion. Regular car washes that include undercarriage cleaning can mitigate this issue, preserving your vehicle's performance.
  2. Thorough Cleaning: From top to bottom, inside and out, give your car a comprehensive spring cleaning. Removing debris and clutter not only enhances its appearance but also contributes to its longevity.
  3. Wiper Blade Replacement: Winter weather can wear down wiper blades, compromising visibility during spring showers. Replace them to ensure clear visibility on the road.
  4. Tire Pressure Check: Proper tire pressure is essential for optimal vehicle performance and fuel efficiency. Refer to your owner's manual for the correct pressure and inflate your tires accordingly to prevent unnecessary wear and tear.
  5. Fluid Inspection and Top-Off: Check the levels of essential fluids such as antifreeze, oil, transmission fluid, and washer fluid. Top them off as needed and inspect for any leaks, addressing them promptly to prevent further damage.
