Are you planning a family road trip through North Carolina once spring arrives? Make sure your car is ready to roll first. Here are a handful of spring car care tips that will leave your car ready for the warm spring weather!
Clean the interior
If you’re like most Americans, you don’t want to linger in the cold once you get home. As a result, fast food trash and other debris has likely built up in your car’s interior. Get a trash bag and clean it out. Once you can see the floor again, take a few minutes to sweep up crumbs and debris.
Wash the exterior
Road salt can do significant damage to your car’s paint and undercarriage if left unchecked. Taking an afternoon to wash your car’s exterior can help prevent the salt and debris from eating into the paint. Once it’s squeaky clean, apply a coat of wax to further protect the paint.
Check the tires
Your tires are arguably the most important part of your car. They’re the only part of the car that makes contact with the road. As the temperature rises, so will the air pressure in your tires. Check the tire pressure once a week to make sure it’s still at optimal levels. While you’re checking the pressure, inspect the tires too. Take a close look at the tread wear. Keep an eye out for any bulges or other signs of damage to the tire.
