Car maintenance for Spring: Don't forget about your car...
As the weather starts to turn nice during the Spring, many people start to focus on outdoor activities such as gardening around the house, taking care of their lawn or even camping and fishing. One thing you don't want to do though is neglect your car especially if you have long trips planned for Spring break or summer.
According to CBSNEWS.com...
"After what seemed like an endless winter, you may be planning to hit the road for a spring or summer road trip. Just take this factoid as a warning: AAA roadside service estimates that it helps more than 9 million stranded motorists during a summer.
If, like most Americans, you're not driving a fresh-from-the-showroom ride - the average age of passenger vehicles in the U.S. is just over 10 years old - its time to give your car a little springtime TLC.
"Drivers often overlook their cars when it is spring cleaning time," says Shawn Hoelzer, master technician for CarMax, the largest U.S. chain of used car dealerships. "Following a few easy steps to spruce up your vehicle helps avoid costly repairs."
So take your car to a dealership to get checked out - or, better yet, to an independent mechanic you trust."
Car maintenance for Spring: The basics...
There are several things you want to do and check on in regards to car maintenance after winter. In order to not overlook or forget something, It's best to create a spring car maintenance checklist. Here are several things that should be included:
- Checking your tires or changing your snow tires
- Cleaning the exterior and interior of the car
- Checking the car battery
- Checking your brakes
- Checking the wiper blades and lights
- Checking the oil
- Checking the fluids
Car maintenance for Spring: Additional items...
While the above are the basics as far as a Spring car check up, feel free to add other checklist items to your car care list. These could include:
- Checking the air conditioning
- Checking the belts and hoses
- Checking the alignment and suspension
- Checking your filters
Just know that the actions you take now will only benefit you when it comes to keeping your car running its best and being there for you when you need it.
Car maintenance for Spring: Do it yourself (or not)...
One great thing about this list is that many of these can be done by yourself if you want. Your vehicle's owners manual will give you a great deal of vital information you need in order to check many of these such as how to check the oil and fluid levels and even replacing wiper blades and lights if needed.
If you don't feel comfortable checking these (even after referring to the owners manual), we recommend having a professional change your snow tires for you and they can also check the rest as well. Even though it may cost a little to have professional do these, it could save you a lot in the long run if a problem was ever to arise.
Car maintenance for Spring: What about the getting you out of a jam and saving you money part?
Like we mentioned earlier, with Spring and Summer comes road trips and a lot more outdoor activity. This at times can land your car off paved roads and onto the wet grass, sand, and mud. If you are not prepared, you can get stuck and waste a lot of time and money trying to get your car out. For those situations, we would like to introduce THE PORTABLE TOW TRUCK - THE ULTIMATE TIRE TRACTION DEVICE.
The Portable Tow Truck is proven tire traction aid used by the largest commercial fleet companies in the world and 1000s of people as well. For very little money, you can have the best tire traction device for snow, ice, mud, and sand in your vehicle at all times. They are lightweight and can be used by any driver with any vehicle type (cars, trucks, vans, RV's and small, medium and large fleet vehicles) over and over. The Portable Tow Truck can save you hours of time and hundreds of dollars over a tow truck if you ever need them in a sticky situation.

"I was at a weekend RV outing event this past summer. I saw three RV's, one car, and one truck get stuck due to excessive rain and mud that weekend. A guy had several sets of these with him in his RV and he actually used them on all three RV's, the car and truck to get unstuck. I was shocked the product worked so well. Based on the price these are a must in my opinion." 5 out of 5 stars
