Spring Maintenance Tips for your Car

We’ve made it through another long, cold New Jersey winter. Now it’s time to make sure your car did, too. Here’s what to do (and look out for) as we move into a windows-down spring and a summer full of roadtrips.

Check Tire Pressure

Everyone knows that you’ve got to check your tire pressure, and usually put some air in them, when it first gets cold. Well, the reverse is also true: When the temperature warms up, your tire pressure goes up too, and you don’t want to be driving around on overfilled tires. So make it a point to check the recommended air pressure in your owner’s manual and then let out some air if need be. And if your tires are looking a little ragged, Subaru of Morristown offers great replacement Subaru tires at good prices.

Clean that Car!

It hasn’t been the snowiest winter in recent memory, but your car still got plenty of exposure to road salt, gravel, and ice this winter. All that can corrode your vehicle’s handsome paint job, so give it a thorough bath this spring and then a nice coat of wax to protect it from whatever the summer sun has to offer.

Have it Inspected

Winter isn’t just rough on your car’s exterior. Freezing temperatures and rough roads can spell trouble for it mechanically, and it isn’t uncommon for cars to pick up squeals, squeaks, creeks, and other unpleasant noises after the colder months. Beneath those annoying sounds could be actual operating issues, so make sure your suspension, engine, drivetrain, and brakes are all in good working order before making big summer driving plans. Your steering might need to be aligned, and it might be time for an oil change. And if anything needs to be addressed, get on it sooner rather than later by finishing our Mendham area service center.

Check Wiper Blades

This might seem like an afterthought, but it shouldn’t be. Frigid temperatures, the resulting thaw, can cause those thin rubber wiper blades to split and crack. Wipers are a quick, easy replacement, but they make a world of difference when spring showers and punishing summer thunderstorms roll through our area, so give them a look, too!
