Now it’s time to thank your car with a little spring cleaning to prepare for the upcoming change of seasons.
Wash away the salt
Salt is a great way to make roads a little safer in the dead of winter, but it’s unforgiving to your car’s undercarriage. If you ignored car-washing duties during the cold, now’s the time to properly clean your car.
Time for a change
Take a look at your tires and windshield wipers. Winter may have wreaked havoc on both, so it may be time to replace them.
Ditch the extra weight
If you carry bags of sand or cat litter in your trunk for winter traction emergencies, it’s time to take them out and store them elsewhere. You’ll get better gas mileage.
Time for some old fashioned elbow grease
It’s likely your car’s interior could use a spring cleaning too. Empty the trash, vacuum throughout and wash the windows for better visibility. If you don’t want to handle this task yourself, consider a full detail by Great Plains Auto Body.
When did you last have an oil change or switched out your air filter? If you ignored these tasks during winter, you’re probably due. Take care of it before spring arrives.
Your car went through a lot this winter. It’s time to get it ready for what should be a milder season.
