3 Tips to Get Your Car Ready for Spring

Get Your Car Ready for Spring | Crivitz, WI

As exciting as the warmer weather of spring can be, it can also present some new challenges for your car and your commute. Here are three tips to get your car ready for spring here in Crivitz, Wisconsin.

Clean your car

While you’re waiting for milder weather to arrive, take your car for a wash. This will remove any salt and grime that has accumulated on your vehicle during the winter and help prevent rust on the undercarriage.

Check the tire pressure

Constantly changing temperatures can do a real number on tire pressure. To keep your tires working as effectively and efficiently as possible, be sure to constantly check your tire pressure and inflate them when needed.

Test your car’s battery

Cold weather is rough on every component of your car, especially on the battery. So, make sure to test your battery to make sure it has enough life in it to keep your car functioning smoothly this spring. If it has been a while since you last changed this part, it’s probably time to do so.

No matter whether you’re anticipating spring day trips or longer road trips, Frank Porth Chevrolet will be happy to give your car a seasonal checkup. Call us today to schedule a service appointment.
