April is National Car Care Month - Here are some Tips to Make Sure Your Vehicle is Good to Go!

In April, as winter comes to an end, it is time to get your car ready for spring driving and summer road trips! National Car Care Month reminds you to take care of any issues that may have occurred or been ignored during winter.


With spring, its arrival means warmer weather, more hours of daylight and spring break travel. Take a few steps to make sure your vehicle is safe and road-trip ready:


• Check that all interior and exterior lighting is working properly and replace worn wiper blades so you can see clearly when driving at night and during spring showers.
• Check the brake system and make sure the battery connection is clean, tight and corrosion-free.
• Check the tires, including tire pressure andtread. Underinflated tires reduce a vehicle's fuel economy and uneven wear indicates a need for wheel alignment. Tires should also be checked for bulges and bald spots.
• Check filters and fluids, including engine oil, power steering and brake and transmission, as well as windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant. Dirty air filters can waste gas and cause the engine to lose power.
• Check the hoses and belts and replace if they become loose, cracked, brittle, frayed or show signs of excessive wear as they are critical to the proper functioning of the electrical, air conditioning, power steering and cooling systems.

• Check if chassis and suspension to be sure there are no safety related concerns that will affect the handling and steering of your vehicle. The winter freeze and those spring pot holes and cracks in the roads can cause a lot of damage to your vehicle.


"Checking your vehicle thoroughly and taking steps to have auto repairs performed before the spring and summer driving season will not only give you peace of mind, but will also help avoid the inconvenience and potential safety hazards of breaking down when you're miles from home," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council.
