It's National Vehicle Maintenance Month!

Spring is upon us, and with spring comes a time for warmer weather and new possibilities. We often think that we should start cleaning the house and tidying up different parts of our lives. One aspect many of us forget is the importance of keeping our car well taken care of. 


Our car is a machine that needs regular maintenance to run correctly. So why is it important to do it now? April is now known as National Vehicle Maintenance Month, and we want to give you some great tips on keeping your vehicle running like it did when you first got it! 

Car Care Tips for National Vehicle Maintenance Month

Keep Your Car Clean: This time of year is exciting because it means we are one season away from summer. However, most of us don't know that the winter months have created salt and grime buildup on the roads that could have cost your car to be dirtier than usual. We recommend washing your vehicle as best as possible to get rid of that buildup. Keeping your vehicle squeaky-clean will also make it much easier to inspect in the long run! 


Replace Old Tires: April is a great month to consider replacing your old tires with new ones. If you plan on going on any road trips this year, it is especially important to have the best wheels possible. Additionally, checking your tire pressure and inspecting for damage, like needles, is recommended during National Vehicle Maintenance Month. 


Check Fluids: Having a well-maintained car means that your vehicle is up to date with all its fluids. What are the important fluids we recommended checking during National Vehicle Maintenance Month? We recommend getting your break, power steering, transmission, coolant, and windshield washer fluids checked and refilled if necessary. 

Why Taking Care of Your Car Is Important

Taking care of your car is important for so many reasons. One of the most important reasons you should take care of your car and perform preventative maintenance regularly is to keep you and everyone on the road safer. The second reason is that it will save you hundreds of dollars in the long run!
