National Car Care Month: General Car Maintenance Tips to Start the Season

car maintenance tips

Spring is finally here, and though it may seem that the upcoming months are some of the safest of the year, especially compared to this year’s harsh winter, it’s important to remember that spring has its own challenges.

And although we’ve shared a few of our top tips last month, we thought we’d share a few more spring car maintenance tips in honor of National Car Care Month:

  • Schedule an overall check-up to make sure that nothing was damaged by harsh weather and that all fluid levels are as they should be.
  • Check the tire pressure, an important task that should be completed frequently; always consult the vehicle owner’s manual for details.
  • Evaluate the suspension and wheel alignment, as winter weather frequently causes imbalances and uneven wear on tires.
  • Lastly, give your car a good clean – inside and out – in honor of spring cleaning. Who knows what has accumulated under those seats.
