Spring Break For Your Car

March 14th, 2014 by


Spring Break is one of the best times of the year because it means that Spring is upon us and that means warmer weather is heading our way!  It might not be time to pack the Winter coats yet but we can see the end coming and that’s exciting in itself.  Spring brings about a fresh new feeling that usually radiates throughout your life from cleaning, getting outside to enjoy nature once again, or time to clean up and take care of things you put off during Winter.  Here’s a list of things you can do for your vehicle to get in the mode of Spring Break.

Clean Your Car – A dirty car makes any trip less enjoyable and is usually one of the cheapest things you can do to improve your current vehicle.  A trip to the car wash, throwing out trash, sweeping the inside and wiping down the dash and windows will take a few hours and maybe $20 but it will make your vehicle look instantly better and make you feel better about your ride. Our Speedy Wash & Lube site offers state-of-the-art car washes at an amazing price and free vacuums so check it out.  If you really want to get into the Spring spirit, you can also go ahead and put on a layer of wax to protect the paint finish.

Change Your Wiper Blades – It’s likely that you are similar to most Americans in the fact that at one point or another, you used your wipers to remove snow from the windshield only to discover that there was ice involved.  Even if you were lucky enough not to do that, the cold weather and the moisture likely dulled your blades and it’s about time for a fresh set to prepare you for the rainy days of Spring.

Check The Bulbs – It’s not fun to work on your vehicle when the weather is so cold, and not many people are checking the status of their vehicle either.  Since warm weather is coming, it’s a good idea to take a few trips around the vehicle to check if all your lights (brake, headlights, fog, turn-signals) are working properly.  This will help keep you safe also in case you’ve got some road trips coming up.

Check Tire Pressure – Even if your vehicle has a monitor system for tire pressure, it is a good idea to check your tires to ensure that they are properly inflated.  This will keep you safe and get the best gas mileage so it’s well worth the little amount of time needed.  Also, you should check the treads on the tires to make sure you don’t need new tires yet.

Trade In Your Ride – You might not be in a place where getting a new car is an option, but if you are, now is the time to do it.  Spring brings about changes and often people want to make changes with their life so go ahead and trade in your ride for a new one.  At Fred Martin Superstore, we have 1,500 vehicles to choose from and great financing options that could keep you at your current monthly payment or even less.

Before you know it, Spring and warm weather will be here and we can’t wait! Get ready to roll those windows down and unleash the convertibles!
