How to get your car ready for spring

Winter can be a long, harsh season not only on you, but on your vehicle. As the cold temperatures break and warmer spring days arrive, here are four ways we recommend get your vehicle ready for warmer weather driving.

Wash the Underbody – Wintertime driving will coat your car’s under body with salt, sand and other grime that can cause corrosion. Corrosion can lead to rust problems, which can make your car harder to resell and even sometimes can be dangerous to drive. When you are going to get your car washed, spend a few extra dollar for the undercarriage washed.

Check Your Tires– Cold weather can cause tires to be under inflated and the onset of warm weather can cause them to over inflate. Also do a visual inspection on your tires to make sure they are wearing evenly and have plenty of tread for rainy spring weather.

Get Your Car Touched Up - You should fill in small dings and dents to keep your car in good cosmetic condition. Repairing those minor blemishes is easy, thanks to a process called Paintless Dent Repair. Repairs are made without the use of paint or body fillers.

Clean Out the Junk – The trunk tends to act as a general storage facility during the winter for everything from hockey gear to shovels and any other winter items you’ll no longer need. Clean it all out and find another storage space, not only will it free up some room to store things you’ll need in the summer, but will also lighten the load improving your vehicle’s fuel economy.
