Spring Car Care Tips

Brake Check – After the cold winter be sure to check your brakes.  One of the warning signs is brake noise, including excessive grinding, squealing, screeching or chatter.

Interior clean-upVacuum, vacuum, vacuum!  Be sure to throw away any unwanted garbage that has hibernated under your seats over the winter.  And now is the time to store your winter car mats in the garage.

Apply a protectant – Any vinyl surface including the dashboard, seats and the steering wheel are susceptible to cracking, sun damage and fading – be sure to apply a protectant at the beginning of the season and touch-up regularly.

Check all fluids to make sure they’re topped up – In the winter months, fluids are easily depleted as your engine works harder in the colder weather.  Make sure to double-check all the car’s fluids regularly.

Wash your car – Just like a good maintenance program prolongs the life and performance of your car, all vehicles regardless of the finish (clear coat, acrylic, enamel, etc.) require regular washing throughout the year.  To preserve you car’s shine and protect the surface, wax your vehicle once it has dried completely.
