Spring is right around the corner which means there’s still some time to properly prepare. An oil change is the most common maintenance item but it’s just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. We here at Schlossmann Subaru City have some great spring car care tips to help you enjoy the warmer weather when it arrives.
Get an Inspection
Winter can hide minor problems but once warmer weather arrives, those problems can become a major money drain. Take the time to have your vehicle professionally inspected by a certified service technician. Doing so may cost some money but you could end up saving thousands in repairs as a result. Don’t wait until there’s a major problem with your vehicle!
Replace the Wiper Blades
Spring may bring warmer weather but it also tacks on heavy rains in many climates. Odds are your wiper blades took a beating in winter which means you’re in need of a new set. They’re pretty cheap and your owner’s manual can provide DIY installation instructions for your specific vehicle.
Check the Lights
Driving in the rain and dark without proper lighting can be a hazard. That’s why now is the perfect time to inspect your lights and replace any burnt out bulbs. Don’t wait until you need them!
