5 Ways to Ensure Your Auto Is in Great Shape for Springtime Driving

With spring just around the corner, it’s time to get your car ready for springtime driving. This means giving it a thorough once-over and TLC to undo winter’s damage. Months of snow, slush, ice, road salt, and cold could have taken a toll on your vehicle. It’s a must to help your vehicle recover from the harsh elements of winter.

If getting your car ready for spring is something you’re fairly new to, or if you’ve been doing it for some time now but you’re still having some uncertainties, Breast Cancer Car Donations is here to share with you five ways of ensuring your car is in great shape for springtime driving:

1. Deep clean your car.

Who says only homes need a spring cleaning? Your car deserves it, too! Salt- and ice-covered roads, as well as winter slush, make it difficult to keep your vehicle clean no matter how careful of a driver you are. That’s why giving it a full cleaning should be a priority. Clean those floor mats, remove any dirt from your car exterior, and wax it until it looks brand-new. Don’t forget to take out any winter items you stored in your trunk.

2. Check all fluids.

Since winter weather can deplete certain fluids (especially wiper fluid) more quickly than in any other season, check each of them to determine whether a top-up is necessary. You can do the job yourself or you can go to a service station to get it done for you.

3. Replace your wiper blades.

Harsh winter elements can wreak havoc on your wiper blades. Broken blades can put you at risk of an accident while you’re on the road when it’s raining or snowing. You can buy a new set for around $40. You can install them easily on your own.

4. Inspect your brakes.

Road salt can corrode the metal frames of your brake system, affecting its performance and condition. Brake pads work efficiently with clean, lubricated metal frames. That said, have your brakes inspected at your local service station.

5. Examine your tires.

Winter can be brutal on tires. See to it that all your tires, including your spare, are properly inflated before making your first spring journey. Look for cracks, worn treads, or any signs of defect that could lead to a tire blowout. Check your tire alignment and have your tires rotated. Don’t forget to check your tire pressure. Colder temperatures can cause tires to get underinflated while they tend to overinflate at the onset of warm weather. Also, if you’ve been using winter tires, it’s time to replace them with regular tires.
