Did you know that the month of April is deemed “National Car Care Month”? “Why”? You may ask. Because April marks the end of winter (at least we hope so, but who knows with the volatile east coast weather), and the beginning of the spring season. Following a harsh winter, it is time to prepare your car for spring driving and summer road trips! Like the winter months, spring driving brings with it its own issues and hazards such as slick, wet roads, fog, and potholes. It is extremely important to ensure that your vehicle’s tires, headlights, brakes, and windshield wipers are prepared for the upcoming spring conditions.
About a month ago, we published a “how to” blog post on preparing your vehicle for the upcoming spring season (Read it here: https://goo.gl/neEQjf). It may seem minor, but a good spring cleaning can prove very beneficial to your vehicle. The month of April is a great opportunity to:
schedule a full detail
replace wiper blades
restore headlight casings
swap out dying bulbs
replace other filters (air, fuel, etc.) as recommended by your owner’s manual
check the tire pressure, including the spare (as temperature changes cause pressure changes; use also affects pressure over time)
inspect all lights and bulbs; replace as needed
Winter months can be some of the most damaging and detrimental times for your vehicle, so it is important to have your vehicle inspected by a trusted auto mechanic, repair whatever is necessary, and follow recommended service and maintenance schedules as specified in your vehicle’s owner’s manual. April is the perfect month to repair, replace, and replenish your vehicle’s many interrelated parts.
