Looking after your car this spring
There are several things you should check, or do, to keep your car in great condition and be prepared for the unpredictable spring weather. These include:
- Check your tire pressure- in the cold and icy weather, your rubber tires can expand and contract, and this could mean that your tires could do with more air.
- Check your tire tread- spring is infamous for showers and downpours. So if we are set for some heavy rainfall, you will need to have a good amount of tread on your tires to stay safe and stay in control.
- Check your wiper blades- over the winter, your wiper blades have probably had a lot of use. This means that they could be worn down, and as a result, will scratch or damage your windscreen. Prevent this by checking over your wiper blades and making sure they don’t need replacing.
- Check for chips and cracks- during the winter months, chips and cracks in your windscreen can appear, but be less easy to see, for a range of reasons including winter glare and consistent bad weather. Repairing any problems as soon as you can is the best way to stay safe and avoid more expensive problems.
