Spring Car Care Checklist

Nissan Frontier with Touch all the Bases TextIf you drive your vehicle year round, there’s a good chance you have to take it through some pretty rough conditions brought about by the weather. Before you do anything else, our first tip would be to give your vehicle a nice wash to get all of the elements you’ve been driving it through right off. Snow, sleet, ice and, worst of all, the road salt thrown to deice highways can damage your vehicle’s exterior. So, you want to make sure to clean this off as soon as possible. Here’s a checklist for you to go through with additional things that you might want to check as part of your spring car care routine.

  • Wash & Wax
  • Battery
  • Brakes
  • Tire Tread
  • Tire Pressure
  • Windshield Wipers
  • Fluid Levels
  • Lights

You can touch all the bases by bringing your vehicle in right here to the Rairdon’s Nissan of Auburn service department. Bring your vehicle in for an oil change or some other kind of maintenance, and we’ll throw in a complimentary multi-point inspection in which we’ll touch on all of these bases.

Maintenance Tips for Long-term Parking

Long-term parking might sound more serious than your situation, but regardless of the circumstances if you don’t drive your vehicle on a regular, everyday basis, there are some things that you should be doing to make sure your vehicle remains running as smoothly as it should once it is time to start up the engine and go for a drive.

  • Go for a short drive around the block every few days to keep your battery charged
  • Check your fluid levels occasionally to make sure everything is good to go next time you head out
  • Check your tire pressure occasionally and refill if necessary to prevent your tires from going flat
  • Keep your paint job looking fresh and new by washing your vehicle as regularly as possible

Following these tips, and taking care of your spring car care checklist, should make sure that your vehicle is always ready to go.
