Time For Spring Auto Maintenance

Each season brings new sounds. Winter brings the sounds of snow plows scraping the roadways and fall brings the sound of leaf blowers. Now that spring has arrived, the birds are singing, the bees are buzzing and your car is screaming for some TLC. Sounds like you need to do some spring auto maintenance!

Spring Auto Maintenance

Tires

Spring is a good time to make sure that your tires are in good shape. How much tread is enough? Do the penny test and find out! Place a penny upside down in between the tread ribs. Can you see all of Lincoln’s head? If so, you might need new tires. At the very least, make sure your tires are inflated properly. Then, if it’s time, go ahead and rotate them.

Exterior

Between the sleet, the salt, the sand, and the gravel, winter is very hard on a vehicle’s exterior. A thorough and loving hand-washing will do your vehicle some serious good.

Emergency Kit

You may have depleted some of the resources in your emergency roadside kit—the winter has a tendency to have that effect. Take some time and replace essential items. And if don’t have a kit, now is a good time to make one! Include things like roadside flares, a flashlight, non-perishable snacks, bottled water, a spare cell phone charger and other emergency essentials.

Spring auto maintenance is a perfect excuse to get outside and cure your lingering cabin fever! While you are out and about, why not test drive a new vehicle at Hanner Chevrolet?
