Spring is in full swing, which means it's time to finally open the curtains, get out the shorts and t-shirts, tidy up your home, and spruce up the lawn--but you may be missing a spot during your spring cleaning: your car! With the arrival of warmer weather, your car may need some service to fully enjoy spring and get ready for summer. Our friendly certified Service Team can handle any tune-up. Some common spring services are listed below:

Spring Service

  • Get your car detailed! -- Road salt and grit can be extremely hard on your car's frame, body, and paint coating. Simply getting your car detailed can make a dramatic difference in preventing rust--and getting all that caked mud and dirt out of the interior doesn't hurt either.
  • Change out your windshield wiper blades and wiper fluid. -- Dealing with the ice, snow, and grit of winter takes a pretty heavy toll on your wipers. You'll want to replace them every spring so you don't get caught in a spring rainstorm with streaking, worn-out wiper blades. Switching to a warm weather washer fluid is a smart move as well--winter fluids are designed to deal with ice and snow, but they don't perform as well when it comes to the spring rain and summer bugs.
  • Check your battery. -- Cold starts in the winter are hard on your car battery, so it's important to make sure it's still in good, reliable condition.
  • Inspect or swap out your tires. -- Make sure your tire pressure and tread-depth are up to spec. If you use winter tires throughout the winter, swap them out for all-season or summer tires to improve your car's handling and fuel efficiency in warm weather conditions.
