While it doesn’t always seem like it with the weather we’ve had, spring is almost here. As the seasons switch, it’s important to make sure your vehicle is ready for the changes. Here are a few tips from Fields Lexus of Glenview to prepare your pre-owned Lexus for spring.
Check Your Tires
After driving on slick surfaces all winter, your tires have been working hard to keep you in control on the road. Check to make sure that they still have adequate tread – at least 4/32 of an inch. Keep in mind, winter tires can wear down faster in warmer temperatures. So, if you utilized winter tires this winter season, you may want to consider replacing them.
Replace Your Windshield Wiper Blades
The cold weather can stiffen your windshield wiper blades, which can make them prone to breaking. It’s important that you replace them as the weather warms up so you know that they’ll be ready for all those spring showers. Don’t forget to top off your windshield wiper fluid so you’ll be ready for all the dust and bugs, too.
Inspect Your Battery
Extreme temperatures can seriously drain your battery. As the cold weather subsides, it’s a good idea to have your battery inspected. You want to ensure that it’s still reliable. Keep in mind, batteries aren’t meant to last forever. So, if you have had issues with it, it could be the cold, but it could also very well mean it’s ready to be replaced.
