Your vehicle needs seasonal maintenance in order to run smoothly all year long. Use this seasonal spring checklist to ensure that your vehicle from J.B.A. Mitsubishi is ready for the new season.
After a long winter, your vehicle is sure to have driven through its fair share of salted roads. While road salt is great for keeping drivers safer, it’s terrible for cars and paint jobs. If left on the vehicle, it will lead to damage and rust. Take your car in for a good power wash, being sure to get the undercarriage as well. Then, apply a coat of wax to your vehicle’s exterior, to protect the paint from scratches and dents.
Winter leaves behind potholes—sometimes lots of them. Driving over these annoyances can mess with a vehicle’s suspension, which is how a vehicle’s alignment gets off. Poorly aligned tires can make driving more difficult, and will cause tires to wear down unevenly. Bring your car into J.B.A. Mitsubishi for an alignment this spring.
Generally, vehicles need oil changes every three months or so. A good routine is to get your vehicle’s oil changed at the start of every season (including spring).
Your car’s wipers have worked hard all winter long to give you clear visibility in the snow. If you notice any streaks left behind when the wipers are on, or if you hear squeaking noises, then you might need to replace them. It’s easy and inexpensive to do, and will increase your visibility in the spring rain. While you’re at it, check the levels of washer fluid in the vehicle to further enhance the cleanliness of your windshield.
Enjoy the flowers this spring and don’t forget to stop by J.B.A. Mitsubishi for your seasonal maintenance appointment. It’ll help your Mitsubishi stay safe and perform reliably on your spring road trips.
