Spring has sprung, and it’s time to get your car ready for the warmer temperatures and road trips that lay ahead. To help you get your vehicle in tip-top shape, the service technicians at Lewisville Volkswagen have put together some helpful spring car maintenance tips.
Check your alignment and suspension
Texas experienced an unprecedentedly cold winter this year, which can put stress on your vehicle’s suspension and alignment. Bring your vehicle in to Lewisville Volkswagen to have your struts and shocks inspected.
Inspect your wiper blades
After dry, frigid winter temperatures, your windshield wipers might be too worn to keep April showers out of your vision. Stay safe and make sure your wiper blades are free of cracks or tears. If you spot damage, it time to replace them.
Top off your fluids
As the weather starts to warm up, make sure your engine fluids are appropriately full. If you run out of coolant, your engine could overheat during Texas’ trademark scorching summers.
Monitor tire pressure
Tire pressure fluctuates in tandem with temperature changes, which becomes problematic during spring’s indecisive weather. Stay safe by checking to make sure that your tires are inflated to a PSI within the manufacturer’s suggested range,
If you’d rather leave this maintenance to the pros, call Lewisville Volkswagen to schedule a spring tune up.
