7 Tips to Get Your Car Ready for Spring


Spring is here, and it's time to ensure your vehicle is ready for warmer weather. After all, winter can cause a lot of wear and tear on cars. Here are seven tips to get your car ready for spring, no matter where you're located — be it Stettler, Bashaw, Lacombe, Alix, Big Valley, or Red Deer. These tips are crucial to maintain your vehicle's optimal performance and ensure you can enjoy safe, hassle-free rides throughout the season.


1. Swap Your Tires


Winter tires are great for driving through snow and ice, but they aren’t ideal for warmer weather. Consider switching to all-season or summer tires to improve fuel efficiency and handling. Don't forget to check your tire pressure. If you need new tires, Stettler Dodge in Stettler, Alberta, can help.


2. Clean Your Vehicle


Winter weather can leave your car covered in grime and salt, leading to rust and corrosion. Give your vehicle a thorough cleaning, both inside and out. This will help protect the paint, keep it looking new, and help keep you healthier too.


3. Examine Your Headlights


Foggy or yellowed headlights can reduce your visibility on the road, especially at night. Have your headlights professionally cleaned or replaced to ensure maximum visibility when driving.


4. Check Your Brakes


Winter driving conditions can take a toll on your brakes. Ensure they are checked for any wear and tear or any signs of damage. Stettler Dodge has several service specials available and can help you schedule a service appointment today!


5. Replace Your Wipers


Cold weather can crack and damage your windshield wipers. Replace them with new ones to ensure your windshield stays clear and your view is unobstructed during those spring showers.


6. Look for Leaks


Extreme temperature fluctuations can cause hoses, belts, and seals to crack. This can cause leaks to develop. Have your engine checked for any leaks or damages that may have occurred during the winter months.


7. Replace Your Air Filter


A dirty air filter can negatively impact your vehicle's performance, efficiency, and air quality inside the car. Have your air filter replaced for optimal performance and cleaner air.
