If nothing is seriously wrong with your vehicle, it’s easy to forget about routine upkeep. Instead of waiting for a dashboard warning light to illuminate or a serious malfunction to occur, keep your vehicle in the best shape possible with these seasonal car maintenance tips from Fullen Motors.
Replace your wiper blades
Cold winter nights and unpredictable weather patterns put an extra strain on your windshield wipers. As spring begins, check your wiper blades to make sure they’re not cracked, bent, or otherwise damaged. If they are, it’s time to replace them.
Get a wash
Perhaps it seems like a purely cosmetic concern, but keeping your car’s exterior clean can also prevent rust damage and help you notice any other body damage. Regularly washing your car is also a great way to protect its future resale value. Plus, driving a clean car is just more fun.
Make a habit of checking your car’s fluids on a seasonal basis. Be sure to include windshield wiper fluid and coolant as well as your oil. Regularly doing this will help keep your car functioning safely and efficiently.
As the seasons change around you, consistently following these maintenance tips is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to ensure that your car performs as well as possible all year long. Take your vehicle to Fullen Motor Co. to make sure it’s in tip-top shape!
