Zender Ford is just as happy as you are that winter is behind us and spring is straight ahead. Shake off those cold weather blues and get ready to soak in the sun! To celebrate the end of the winter season, we’ve come up with a few tips to help you get your vehicle ready for the warm weather!
Clean Inside And Out
Your car’s been beat up slogging through the dirty winter months, so make sure you give it a good clean to get it sparkling. A quick spray down will help remove salt that has accumulated on your car. Once it’s clean, a full-vehicle wax will help maintain its condition over the coming months. But you’re not quite done yet, don’t forget to also clean the insides! Your floor mats have probably taken a beating with all of that muck and grime that’s been tracked in on them, so make sure you give them some tender loving care. Clear out your glove box or any compartments that may have accumulated unnecessary clutter over the long, cold months.
The rough winter roads are never good on your wheels; and the unpredictability of snow and ice-packed roads can easily throw your wheels out of alignment. Aligning your suspension will put less wear on your car and give you a more comfortable ride. You can book an appointment online through our Service department to get your wheels back to their best.
Check Your Tires
Your winter tires have been doing a great service keeping you safe on those snowy roads, but now it’s time to change them out. To get you that perfect new set of tires our Online Price Tool will help you get the right fit for your vehicle. Before you hit the pavement make sure they’re fully pressurized so they’ll stay in top condition.
Before you plan your next spring road trip have your vehicle’s fluids changed. Firstly, you’ll of course want to get an oil change to keep your engine in prime shape. Be sure to also top up your windshield wiper fluid to combat any leftover dirt and slush from the road that may end up on your windshield. Also make sure to check your transmission, brakes and power steering fluids.
