Winter can be incredibly cruel to your vehicle, especially if it’s parked outside in the cold. Spring is finally here, which means it’s time to provide some much-needed love and care. Here are some informative spring car maintenance tips from us here at Wright Nissan.
- Windshield Wipers – Ice, sleet, and snow can do quite a number on windshield wipers, which is why you need a new set this spring. Spring tends to bring warmer weather as well as heavy rains. Worn wipers won’t be nearly as effective as a new set. Best of all, this necessary safety feature is inexpensive and takes just a few minutes to install.
- Lights – Properly functioning lights are a necessity no matter the season. Driving at night without headlights is a recipe for disaster. Take the time to make sure all of the headlights work by turning them on them walking around your vehicle.
- Oil – If you want your car to run at optimal performance all spring long, then you need an oil change as soon as possible. Cold weather causes oil to thicken and, once warmer weather rolls out, it thins out. That effects the viscosity of the oil and prevents it from optimizing lubrication. Keep your vehicle running at peak performance with an oil change!
Get out there and enjoy the warm weather and shining sun!
