April is National Car Care month! During the winter, vehicles are neglected because of the cold and snow. They sure could use a little extra care by now. It is recommended setting aside a little time during National Car Care Month, to get your vehicle ready for the spring and summer driving season.
Your vehicle goes through a lot in the winter. The harsh conditions, extreme cold, potholes, and road salt all take a toll. Since you rely on your vehicle nearly every day to get to work, school, and everywhere in between, taking a little time for car care now can save headaches and money in the long run.
Having a Clean Vehicle
Regular car washes and waxes protect the paint and body of your car from corrosive debris. In parts of the country where salt is used on the roads, regularly washing is especially important. By washing the vehicle, you are reducing the chance of rust occurring. Also take a few minutes and clean out the interior of your vehicle. Remove any garbage that might be in the vehicle. Also take out things you will not need or will not use.
Every vehicle has a manufacturer recommended maintenance schedule. Following a routine service schedule is essential to keeping your car in safe and dependable working order. If you are not sure how often to bring your vehicle in, contact us. During Car Care month, take the time to ensure your vehicle will run efficient and effective.
When you see your car needs attention, do not ignore it. Your windshield wipers aren’t cleaning as well as they should? Your gas tank is missing its cap? There’s a warning light on your dashboard? Repairing small things now can help avoid more costly problems down the road, and add years of useful vehicle life. No matter what issue you notice, hear, or see, contact us. With an appointment, we can check the vehicle for you.
