Spring 2022 Auto Maintenance Tips  

The arrival of spring weather means that you can get out there and start exploring again. In order to make sure that your vehicle is just as ready for adventure as you are, there are some spring maintenance tips that you should keep in mind. That way, you can hit the road with confidence.

Check On Your A/C

Spring is a great time to get your A/C inspected. You do not want to face the possibility of turning it on when the weather heats up only to find out that it does not work. You can test your A/C yourself by turning it on full blast to see if it is as effective as you remember. If you have any doubts, be sure to schedule an appointment with our service team to get it looked at.

Check On Your Steering & Suspension

When driving on a flat, straight stretch of road, briefly let go of the wheel. That is one of the easiest ways to see if your vehicle is pulling to one side or the other. If it is, your alignment needs to be looked at. Now, if your vehicle is riding rough, this may indicate a problem with a suspension. Either way, get in touch with a mechanic to have it checked out.

Do a Little Spring Cleaning

Over winter, salt and sand can accumulate on your paint job. The beginning of spring is an ideal time for thorough cleaning of your car's exterior. At the same time, you should vacuum your floor mats and upholstery. Freshening your interior will help you enjoy your next road trip.

Check Out Your Emergency Road Kit

Odds are, your emergency road kit has a few things in it that are winter-specific. As the weather gets warmer, you can remove those items. Take this opportunity to ensure that everything you have is in working order, such as your jumper cables and flashlight. You should also double-check the expiration date on any snacks that you have packed.

Taking the time to make sure that your vehicle is ready for spring can ensure that you have a great time on the road as the weather warms up. Get in touch with our service department today to schedule any maintenance and repairs you may need.
