Tire Inspection - Tread and Air Pressure

You already know how important tires are to your safety on the road; however, there is also a comfort factor that should be considered, particularly when spring arrives. The season typically encourages residents in St. Louis Park, MN to travel more often and the tires should be inspected for accurate air pressure, reasonable tread depth and overall condition. Although these same factors play an important safety role, they are also paramount in having a smoother ride and better handling.

Car Wash and Detailing

During winter, the snow, sludge, and salt that exist throughout Minneapolis, St. Paul, Minnetonka, and Plymouth, MN can erode the exterior and those elements need to be thoroughly removed once spring arrives. If not, they will linger for a longer duration and may cause significant damage to the paintwork. And it is advantageous to have the exterior waxed to not only restore the appearance but also for protecting the paintwork against harmful sun rays. Additionally, the undercarriage should be power-washed to remove the winter elements. 

Check Your Wiper Blades

Wiper blades can easily become inefficient, especially after the colder season. Because the material is rubber, they tear, break apart and the overall condition deteriorates. Spring is an ideal opportunity to inspect the wiper blades to ensure the quality is acceptable. Special attention should also be focused on the brackets that hold them in place. The brackets usually last for many years; however, they can become weakened.

Battery Inspection and Testing

Your car battery can become inefficient at any time and should be monitored regularly. While spring is an asset to a battery due to an increase in temperature, it is still significantly impacted by winter conditions. If the battery isn't tested and cleaned, you may find that you're unable to start your engine without any warning whatsoever.

A/C System Inspection

Spring is an opportune moment to establish whether there are any issues regarding your air condition system, which should only be conducted by a trained and certified technician. This proactive preparation will ensure that you're ready for summer and help to identify any needed repairs or recharging the system, as well as help you prepare your budget, before the warmer season. Spring service appointments can be scheduled in advance through our online scheduler, or call the service center!
