Spring is finally in full swing, which means it’s time to get out there on the open road to enjoy the best driving weather the year has to offer. Before you set off on. Your spring road trip, though, it’s important to take care of some routine maintenance. Not sure where to start? Check out these simple spring car care tips and get ready to drive with total confidence.
Wash and wax
Let’s face it, driving a car that looks better just feels better too. And not only that, giving your car a thorough wash after a long winter is a great way to protect your vehicle’s exterior from harmful buildup that can lead to rust. A good coat of wax seals everything up and adds an awesome shine.
Check the tires
Changing air temperature can cause air in tires to expand and contract, which can lead to under-inflation. This spring, make a habit of keeping an eye on your car’s tires and checking for proper inflation, alignment, and tread.
Replace wiper blades
Winter weather can really do a number on your car’s wiper blades. If yours are cracked, bent, or just not working like they used to, it’s time to replace them before you lose optimal visibility on the road.
Finally, spring is the perfect time to test your car’s battery. If it isn’t holding a charge the way it should, replace it now before you’re left stranded.
