As the seasons change, you need to make sure your Honda is ready for those changes. This means taking care of maintenance, having your Honda inspected, and fixing any problems you may find. At Serra Honda of Champaign, we make it easy to prepare your vehicle for spring.
No matter what season it is, you need a good set of tires to drive safely. Tires give you traction that allows you to steer and stop more easily, but they can only do that if they have enough tread and are properly inflated. This is why you need to visit a dealership for a tire tread and pressure inspection before spring arrives each year. If winter took a serious toll on your tires, this is also the best time to replace them.
Just like winter, spring tends to come with a lot of rain. As part of your spring car care routine, make sure you replace your wiper blades before spring. Not only is this a demanding season for wiper blades, but it also comes right after another demanding season which may have already worn your wipers out. Plus, windshield wipers are essential to your safety on the road.
Washing your car may not be the first thing you think of when it comes to getting your car ready for spring, but it’s an important step. You track a lot of messes into your car during the cold and wet winter, and there’s even more crud building up on the outside of your car. Plus, keeping your car clean is always important, so you should make sure you’re having it washed and detailed on a regular basis regardless of what season it is.
Battery problems are the worst, especially when they leave you stranded in a parking lot with nobody to give you a jump. At Serra Honda of Champaign, we recommend bringing your vehicle in to have your battery inspected and tested before spring. We’ll make sure your battery is clean and provides enough power. If your battery is on its way out, we can get it replaced before you have to deal with a breakdown.
As spring progresses, the weather gets a little warmer, and you might finally need to use your air conditioning. We recommend an air conditioning check as a part of every spring maintenance checklist. That way, you don’t have to find out your A/C isn’t working when you need it most. And of course, the experts at Serra Honda of Champaign can take care of everything for you.
