When everything is in bloom, and the sun is out, you’ll want to make sure your Honda is ready for the adventures to come. Spring is a great time to prepare your vehicle for the warmer months so you can drive without worry. Honda of Grays Harbor is just as excited as you are for Springtime, but we want you to be prepared and not put off routine Honda service items like these.

Do Some Spring Cleaning

After a long, cold winter, your Honda’s exterior may have accumulated dirt, salt, and grime. Wash it thoroughly and apply wax to protect your paint job from UV rays and debris. Spring weather can also bring rain, so make sure your wiper blades are in excellent condition and replace them if needed.

Time to Check Tires

Your tires deliver traction for sure starts and stops, so ensuring they are in top shape is essential. The cold can affect tire pressure and wear. Inspect your tires to ensure they are properly inflated to improve fuel efficiency and provide a safe driving experience. We’ll use this opportunity to check your brakes and wheel alignment too.

Inspect Key Mechanical Systems

Schedule an oil change with our service center and check all other fluids, such as brake fluid, transmission fluid, and coolant, ensuring your vehicle runs smoothly and reduces the risk of breakdowns. While you are at it, make sure your car battery is fully charged and corrosion-free, or replace it if it’s over three years old. Since your air conditioning will get a workout soon, inspect it to ensure it’s functioning correctly.

Year-Round Honda Maintenance

Following these tips ensures your Honda is ready for the months ahead. If you need to come in for service or have any related questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at Honda of Grays Harbor, your Honda dealership in Aberdeen, WA.
