Winter can be a doozy when it comes to the general health of your vehicle; from potholes to salt stains, there’s a thousand-and-one reasons for your car to be looking less-than-ideal coming out of the winter season. But, all hope is not lost! We have some easy spring maintenance tips for you to get your vehicle looking a-okay once again:
- Get a tire rotation and alignment check. Rough roads can wreak havoc on your suspension and alignment, so spring is a great time to get your tires rotated (extending their lifespan) and to get your alignment checked out.
- Replace your wiper blades. You use your wipers a lot in the wintertime, so make sure they’re in tip-top shape before you take on April’s notorious showers.
- Take it to the car wash. The last of our spring maintenance tips may seem like the most obvious, but it’s worth repeating. Additionally, make sure you don’t just go to any car wash – be sure to pick a place with undercarriage sprayers to remove salt and debris from underneath.
Keep up hope – summer and all its lazy drives and exciting road trips are near!
