Spring returns! Every year we welcome the return of Spring with fun and also chores. Baseball starts up, the sun comes out and the air warms, and some of us conduct the fabled Spring Cleaning around the house. But did you know that a few Spring preventative auto maintenance procedures can save you money in the long term and keep you safer on the road?
Check Your Windshield Wipers
Alright, we'll admit that winters in the Bay Area don't get too severe. We never face hurricanes or snow storms, but after a season of chill and rain, you can bet your wipers need some attention. Excessive use from winter rains and trips to the snow mean your wipers may not make full contact with your windshield anymore. Winter chill can also cause your wipers to dry out, again making them less effective. Give 'em a check and swap them out! Extra visibility during Springtime showers keeps you and your passengers safe.
Clean the Interior
Let's be honest; we never get all that Fall or Winter mud and grime off our shoes before we get into the car. Your floor upholstery needs some love. Give it a vacuum or even a wash. A little extra care rejuvenates your interior. The carpet will last longer, serve you better, and increase your resale value.
Check the Battery
Batteries and starters work hard all year and in Winter months. Make sure your battery is charged properly. The Car Doctor can help you ensure yours doesn't get too drained. If your car won't start, you aren't going anywhere.
Enjoy the Springtime. Don't forget to get outside, enjoy the sun and the brisk Spring mornings, and appreciate the sunbeams peering through fresh rain clouds.
Come on over and visit us at The Car Doctor, and we would love to check these things for you. The Car Doctor is here to help you with all of your automotive needs—big or small!
