As the worst of winter passes, the snow begins melting, and temperatures begin rising, it’s best to keep your vehicle maintenance in mind and get your car ready for spring. Whether you’re located in Pembroke, Shawville, Petawana, ON, or beyond, allow us to fill you in on the following spring vehicle maintenance tips before reserving your service appointment with Pembroke Honda.
Firstly, we suggest swapping out your winter tires for a set of all-seasons once temperatures stay above 7 degrees Celsius. If you’ve driven through the entire winter, you’ve probably encountered a lot of bumps and potholes on the road, which is why we recommend having your wheel alignment checked, and it’s also wise to book a tire rotation later in the season to ensure that your rubber wears out evenly. Your vehicle has also encountered a lot of salt when braving winter roads, so remember to treat it to a thorough washing, and maybe even a detailing service come spring, as salt can lead to corrosion in your bodywork if left unattended. Your braking system has also seen a lot of action during the winter, and it never hurts to have it looked at during your next service appointment, and don’t forget your vehicle’s vital fluids, including your engine oil, coolant, and transmission fluid. Lastly, remember to check your wipers and have them replaced if needed, as they’ve likely had a busy winter, and you’ll need a reliable set to brave any rain and storms come spring. Luckily, our Pembroke Honda Service Centre can handle all these services and maintenance, so you can exit winter and enter spring with a humming vehicle and peace of mind.
