Nice weather has finally arrived and it feels like spring here at Executive Honda. With summer right around the corner, you may be preparing for your next vacation or a road trip. Before you do, you should make sure that your car is in top shape. Make these car maintenance tips a part of your spring cleaning checklist.

 

One part that may have received a tough workout during the winter months are your windshield wipers.  Snowy and icy conditions can put your wiper blades through their paces, so give them a closer look before you hit the road. If you notice them leaving streaks or not clearing the windshield like they’re supposed to, come to our Honda dealership near New Britain, CT to talk to our experts about a replacement.

 

It’s a good idea to have your alignment and suspension checked too. Winter conditions can do a number on highways and local roads. The cold weather and damp conditions can bring on potholes, cracks, and other problems that can make your ride bumpier than usual. If you think that something about the way your car is driving feels even slightly off, bring your car in for a checkup.

 

It’s also important to look under your hood to make sure that the cold weather didn’t have adverse effects on your engine or other components. Low temperatures can make belts and hoses brittle or wear them down quickly. You might also need to change out your coolant, which could help you avoid problems like overheating during the hotter summer months. There’s no reason to check these on your own.
