As far as car maintenance goes, we have it pretty easy in the winter/springtime compared to other parts of the country. For example, living in Leesburg, we don’t really need to worry about constantly washing the salt off our cars throughout the winter. However, there are still several car maintenance tips we’d like to share with you that could really help your car last longer:
- Clean all the unnecessary things out of your car. Things tend to pile up during the winter months. Whether it be old fruit cake or just some old boxes full of junk, they are weighing your car down and lowering your MPG.
- Check your fluids. This tip isn’t necessarily specific to springtime, but it is good to get in the habit of checking your cars fluids at the changing of the seasons. Just make sure everything is at the level it should be.
- Finally, make sure those windshield wipers are in good working order. Spring is one of the rainiest times of the year, so make sure your wipers are able to clear your windows effectively.
That’s all for today!
