In anticipation of the warmer weather this upcoming season, it is important to prepare your vehicle to take on those spring showers. After surviving a rough winter, make sure you keep these spring car care tips in mind to ensure your car runs smoothly throughout the rest of the year.
Don’t forget your routine maintenance. Every few months, your vehicle should undergo its usual routine maintenance. If you slacked on this during the winter, now is the time to act. Bring your car into Don Wessel Honda for an oil change and tire rotation to assure its ongoing durability and performance on the road.
Check your windshield wipers. Rain is common throughout the spring, which means you need your wipers to be in top-notch shape. Check to see if they’re not cracked or worn, and replace them if they’re older than six months.
Keep an eye on your tires. As the temperatures increase, so will your tire pressure. If you happened to fill up your tires during the winter, your tires’ pressure could be too high now. Check your pressure and adjust it, if necessary. Check your tires’ tread as well using the “penny test.” If the tread doesn’t touch Lincoln’s head, you need replacements.
