With winter finally coming to an end, people are in a hurry to get back into the activities they enjoy in spring and summer. National Car Care Month reminds you to take care of the issues you’ve been ignoring or putting off all winter. Winter can do a lot of damage to your car without you even noticing. The continuous cold weather, snow, ice, slush, and even road grime, salt, and chemicals all add up to heavy wear on your car and its many parts.
Spring driving brings its own set of potential issues. The roads can become slick with early rains, due to oil and residue build-up, and can be damaged from the cold months of winter. Are your tires in peak condition? If you’re using snow tires, this would be the time to transition to your regular set. How are your wiper blades? Ice and snow can tear the plastic pieces, making them virtually worthless in rain.
So what can you do to prepare? Schedule an appointment at your preferred AAMCO location. We will start with our FREE Multi-Point Inspection to identify any potential issues going on. We will take a look under the hood to check that the belts are okay, fluid levels are normal, and determine if the computer is reporting any errors. Next we will move onto vehicle performance. We will inspect the transmission, brakes, engine performance and more! After our initial inspection is completed, we will report back with our findings and help you decide what to do next.
