We all know how unpredictable Indiana weather is here in Mishawaka, South Bend. Warm weather might be around the corner in March, or we might not feel the sun until May. Either way, it’s never too soon to prep your car for warmer weather with these car care tips.
Check the tire pressure
Changes in the temperature can cause your tire pressure to fluctuate. As the weather starts to warm, check that the pressure is at your car’s recommended PSI. If you put on winter tires, you can also take those off and replace them with summer tires if you have them.
Replace windshield wiper blades
If you did a lot of driving in the snow, your windshield wiper blades might be worn down from scraping off all that snow and ice. You should also make sure your wiper fluid is topped off so you can keep your windshield clear of summer bugs.
Get a car wash
Driving through the snow can result in road salt and grime on your car’s undercarriage. A fresh car wash in the warm weather can get rid of the remnants of winter and also protect your vehicle’s paint job.
Double check the brakes
Your car brakes might be a bit worn out from driving on slippery roads. If you feel like your brakes are making weird noises or aren’t responding properly, bring your car into Jordan Toyota to get it checked.
