April was National Car Care month and to celebrate, we provided tips on how to keep your car in great shape! These tips can be done in the comfort of your own home and can be used as a great maintenance checklist to keep your car healthy.
Some of our other tips include:
-Take your vehicle through a car wash, vacuum it out or clean the inside. After washing the outside of your vehicle, don’t forget to give it a good wax to help protect the clear coat and paint from the elements.
-Inspect your windshield wiper blades. Inspect the rubber strips for cracking, wipe down with a damp rag to remove any debris, or replace them if they have been squeaking, leaving streaks on your windshield or don’t effectively remove rain and snow. (see our video above on how to replace your windshield wipers!)
-Check your windshield washer fluid levels and top off if necessary.
-Take the time to organize your vehicle’s important records. Make sure you have your owner’s manual, past maintenance records and the vehicle’s registration in an easy location to refer to when necessary.
