We can’t believe Spring is officially here! It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating Christmas and New Year’s, but we couldn’t be more excited for the shining sun, the blooming flowers, and the blue skies. Winter can wreak havoc on your vehicle, as those cold temperatures make your car work that much harder.
Spring is the perfect time to bring your vehicle to our shop for preventative maintenance. This way, we can avoid any damage winter may have done to your vehicle. Not only that, but preventative maintenance preserves the longevity, driveability, and safety of your vehicle. Here is how to get your vehicle ready for Spring:
- Take time for your tires! Winter driving is hard on your vehicle’s tires. Now is the perfect time to inspect, rotate, and align your tires. If you get your tires aligned and rotated, your tires won’t wear as fast. We will also keep an eye on your tires’ tread to ensure none of your tires are balding. Spring may mean tulips, blue skies, and the sun, but it also means showers. You need tires with adequate traction for the stormy season ahead.
- Make sure to check your windshield wipers. During your winter, your windshield wipers are working in overdrive. It is essential not to forget or neglect your windshield wipers, as they are your first line of defense against the elements, especially as spring showers are quickly approaching.
- Check your vehicle’s battery. Your vehicle works extra hard during the winter months, and fortunately, our technicians at Convoy Auto Repair can quickly inspect your battery for any signs of wear or tear.
- Don’t forget about your vehicle’s fluids. Just like how you need fluids to stay healthy and happy, your vehicle does too! Each one of your vehicle’s fluids, from brake fluid to windshield wiper fluid, needs to be at the appropriate level, or your vehicle’s health and safety may be compromised.
Together, we can make sure your vehicle is ready for anything Mother Nature has in store for us this Spring. Schedule an appointment today with our technicians for a thorough inspection. We are located at 3909 Convoy Street, San Diego, CA 92111, and look forward to seeing you soon.
