Has the harsh winter weather in South Windsor done a number on your vehicle? Even if you took many precautions for winter driving, Mother Nature sometimes has a mind of her own. Consult this post-winter car maintenance checklist from Mazda of Manchester to get your vehicle fresh and running smoothly for the approaching spring!

Spring Maintenance Checklist

As the weather warms up, cross off the items on this spring car maintenance checklist so that you can enjoy your favorite breakfast spots in Bolton all season long!

  • Tires: With icy, snowy weather that hits Rockville during the winter, you may have opted to put on snow tires. If so, you should replace them with standard tires in order to extend the life of your winter tires.
  • Windshield wiper blades: You likely made good use of your windshield wiper blades throughout the winter, so it’s important to check them to ensure they’re still functioning properly.
  • Underbody: Wash your vehicle thoroughly to get rid of salt buildup. If salt is left alone, it has the potential to erode and rust your car.
  • Brakes: Smart drivers pump their brakes consistently on slippery surfaces, which are common in winter months. Make sure to inspect them, especially if you hear squealing or grinding.
  • Fluids: Top off all fluids as necessary, especially windshield wiper fluid.
  • Interior: From bringing in slush to salt stains, your vehicle’s interior likely took a beating of its own over the winter. Make sure to vacuum, scrub, and wipe everything down.
