As winter weather melts away and the flowers begin to bloom, make sure that your vehicle is ready to take on the new season. Follow these spring maintenance tips and your vehicle will soon be ready for warmer weather.
Change your winter tires out. Warmer weather means you won’t have to worry about battling snow on your daily commute. Make sure you bring your vehicle in to Downtown Ford to switch out winter tires for all-season options.
Consider a spring cleaning for your car. The salty roads of winter can really do a number on your car’s exterior and undercarriage. That’s why you should give your car a spring cleaning, both inside and out. This will ensure that road salt won’t cause damage like rusting over the course of your car’s life.
Top off your fluids. Routine maintenance is important, so make sure your car’s fluids are topped off as winter turns to spring. In particular, you’ll want to check the vehicle’s oil level, coolant, and windshield-wiper fluid.
Check your brakes. Road conditions during the winter can cause damage to your brakes. Get them looked over during the spring to ensure you can stop when you need to, even on slick roads.
