The weather has finally begun to warm, and spring is coming along nicely. Winter can be tough on your car, and with summertime just around the corner, now is the perfect time to take care of a few maintenance items in preparation for the season. Here are some suggestions.

  • Oil and Filter Change: This is the most important part of any automotive maintenance plan, and it's especially critical this time of year. The cold temperatures and excess road debris can cause your oil to work harder and wear down faster. A refresh in the spring will allow for maximum performance and efficiency in the summer.

  • Get New Wiper Blades: Cold weather can make wiper blades brittle, significantly decreasing their effectiveness. Insufficient water clearance during a downpour is a safety hazard. Take on the spring and summer rains with confidence with a new pair of wiper blades.

  • Test Your Battery: Car batteries are pretty durable and can last 3-5 years or longer. Like many parts of your car, the battery works harder in cold weather. If you haven't checked or changed your battery in a while, having it tested is a good way to keep from getting stranded with a dead battery.

  • Check You’re A/C: When it's hot outside, it's extra-hot inside your car. A properly functioning air conditioner can help you enjoy the sunshine without feeling like your roasting. Have your system tested before the hottest days arrive.
