It’s hard to believe, but Spring will be here soon and that means time to check out your car. Our service writer, Teresa, gives you a quick rundown about how you can prepare your vehicle for spring.

6 Things to prepare your vehicle for spring:

  1. Make sure your wiper fluid reservoir is full.
  2. Inspect your wiper blades for tears or cracks and replace as needed (April showers bring May flowers!)
  3. Make sure your Air Conditioner is functioning properly. If it’s not blowing cold, you may need to test the system.
  4. Change your air filter and Cabin air filter so you and your engine can breathe comfortably!
  5. Check the tread depth of your tires. As spring arrives, it’s usually wet, and low tread could make your car slide in wet conditions!
  6. Have your brakes inspected. With upcoming summer travel, you will most likely be in stop and go traffic more often than in the winter months.
