As the temperature finally start to rise, it’s really east to get complacent and assume that you and your trusty ride are in the clear. However, taking care of your vehicle is every bit as important in the warm months as it is in the cold ones. Here are a few spring car care tips from the experts at Gossett Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram.
Give it a good wash
Debris, snow, and road salt can do a number on your car’s paint job and clear coat. It goes beyond aesthetic issues though, as even minor exterior damage can quickly spiral into the nightmare that is rust. So, it’s a great idea to give your vehicle a thorough wash in the spring. You should also consider applying a coat of wax.
Examine your tires
Temperature fluctuations tend to wreak havoc on your tires’ pressure — even in Memphis. Before you start cruising around town, take a moment to make sure that your tires aren’t underinflated based on the figures listed in your owner’s manual. Additionally, make sure the tread isn’t worn down, or ask one of the service experts at Gossett Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram to perform a multi-point inspection.
Get rid of the garbage
Regardless of the weather, it’s all too easy to let trash pile up in your car. Spring is the perfect time to clean out your car, which could mean as little work as tossing old wrappers into the waste bin or as much as giving the carpets a good vacuuming to purge those unsightly crumbs.
If your car needs some attention this spring, don’t hesitate to schedule a service appointment with the certified professionals at Gossett Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram.
