Check Your Tires

As the temperatures rise, it's crucial to inspect your tires. Start by checking the tread depth and overall condition. Adequate tread depth ensures proper traction and grip on wet roads. Additionally, verify that the tires are properly inflated according to the manufacturer's recommendations. Proper tire pressure not only improves safety but also enhances fuel efficiency, saving you money at the pump.

Clean and Inspect Your Wipers

Spring showers are a common occurrence, so having functional windshield wipers is essential for maintaining clear visibility on the road. Inspect the wiper blades for any signs of wear or damage. If they leave streaks or fail to effectively clear the windshield, it's time to replace them. Also, make sure to fill up the windshield washer fluid reservoir to ensure you have an ample supply for those rainy days.

Regular fluid checks are important for the overall health of your vehicle. Before embarking on your spring adventures, inspect the engine oil, coolant, brake fluid, and power steering fluid levels. Top up or replace any fluids that are low or showing signs of contamination. Refer to your vehicle's owner manual for the recommended fluid types and maintenance intervals. Or check out your personalize maintenance schedule.

Give Your Vehicle a Thorough Cleaning

Winter weather can leave a layer of grime and salt residue on your vehicle's exterior. Spring is the perfect time for a thorough cleaning. Wash your car, paying extra attention to the undercarriage and wheel wells to remove any accumulated debris.
