Prepare Your Ford Model for the Warmer Season with These 6 Easy Spring Car Care Tips

Whether you did a lot of traveling up north during the winter or not, the cold months can be really rough on your Ford vehicle whether it's brand-new or used; since spring has officially sprung, now is an excellent time to give your beloved ride a little automotive TLC! If you're not sure where to start, we've put together a quick and easy list of 6 spring car care tips that will get you off on the right foot - or, perhaps, the right wheel.

 

 

  1. Clean and wax your vehicle. Dirt and salt from the roads can play havoc on paint and exposed metal. Give your car a good cleaning all over to keep it looking fresh.
  2. Clean out your cabin as well. A season of collecting dirt, debris, and assorted garbage can make the cabin of even the cleanest car feel filthy. Do yourself - and your passengers - a favor and clean out your cabin from front to back.
  3. Check the air pressure in your tires. Cold winter air compresses, so the warmer spring air may require you to re-pressurize your tires properly to ensure optimal performance and efficiency.
  4. Consider replacing your windshield wiper blades. Whether you've been driving through snow and ice or not, there's a good chance your windshield wiper blades have seen better days. If they're leaving streaks or large un-wiped areas, it's time for a new set.
  5. Check under the hood. Cold weather can cause damage to all parts of your vehicle, so pop open the hood and see if any belts or pipes are looking old and brittle. If they are, a service appointment may be in order.
  6. Check your alignment and suspension. Potholes, cracks, and heaves in the road can quickly and easily mess up both your wheel alignment and your suspension. If you feel like your vehicle is riding a little more roughly, or you drifting to the side with the steering wheel straight, we urge you to get a service checkup.

Need some professional assistance with any of these steps, or you're simply in need of routine maintenance or repairs? You can easily schedule a service appointment with us right on our website, so you can leave all the hard work to our professional Las Vegas, NV technicians.
