Winter is ending and you can already see the beautiful flowers blooming or the sound of the waves crashing at the shore at your favorite vacation place. If you are all prepared for the spring, then it is time to make sure that car is also in its best shape for the season filled with long drives and vacations. Here are seven car care tips you must do to make sure your vehicle is ready for the spring.
1. Wash your vehicle Spring cleaning is important after the winter season ends; and this applies to your car too. Spring washing your car will not just improve its physical appearance, but it will also prevent rust from building up by removing road salt and other harmful elements that have accumulated over the winter season. And don’t forget to include the interior of your vehicle. Remove the floor and seat covers and vacuum it thoroughly.
2. Align your tires Your car’s tires are some of the parts that took a lot of beating from the harsh winter condition. Even if the tires you are using are safe for all types of weather conditions, it still pays to have your tires checked by a professional for proper alignment and rotation. Make sure that the tire pressure meets the recommended level. Aside from ensuring a safe and smooth driving experience, it will also save you money on gas.
3.Check your car’s battery Your car’s battery works twice as hard during the winter season. The last thing you would want is to spoil your spring break because your car died out in the middle of the road due to a drained battery. If your car’s battery has been installed for more than 4 years already, then the more reason to have the battery inspected.
