Keeping up with routine vehicle maintenance is the No. 1 step you can take to ensure that your car, truck, or SUV drives safely and smoothly for years to come. With spring making its arrival, now is a great time to get started.
Get an oil change. Your vehicle needs an oil change roughly twice a year or every 5,000 miles. If you haven’t had an oil change since the fall, bring it in for one — and have your tires rotated as well. Good mechanics will perform thorough inspections of your entire vehicle, pinpoint potential issues, and keep you up to date on less common maintenance items.
Take care of spring cleaning. Spring cleaning isn’t just limited to your house. Give your car a good wash and wax, and take this opportunity to clean out the inside as well. Throw away trash, vacuum the carpets, and dust all the air vents.
Ensure good visibility. Get ready for those spring showers by replacing your wiper blades if yours are leaving streaks. Now is a good time to inspect all exterior lights as well to ensure none are burnt out. Replace any as necessary.
This spring, be sure to take care of these car maintenance essentials — either at home or with a visit to our service department at Kevin’s Royal Auto.
