Happy spring! April is National Car Care Month. For many of you, this may come as no surprise. Winter puts a lot of wear and tear on vehicles. Salt and sand eat away at the body and undercarriage. You may have ignored issues with your Ford during the winter because you were too cold and too busy fighting the weather. April is the time to take care of them. Spring driving on slick, rain covered roads brings additional hazards. Sunset Ford in a Seattle suburb stands ready to care for your Ford.
April is a great time to get routine maintenance done. Oil changes, belt changes and air conditioning charging are just a few of the items you may want to consider having done this spring. Taking care of routine maintenance now will prevent issues in the future.
Change and Rotate Tires
Did you put tires with a deeper tread on your car for the winter? April is the perfect time to swap them back to tires better suited for wet roads. We all know how much it rains here in the beautiful Seattle area. Having tires that can handle slick and puddle-filled roads is important to your safety this spring.
While you’re having your tires swapped, it’s a good idea to have your brakes inspected too. The salt and sand can eat away at the brakes without you realizing there’s a problem until it’s too late. It’s that much harder to stop on roads that are slick with rain. Ensuring your brakes are in good working condition keeps you and your family safe.
Be Prepared for Road Trips
Now that spring is upon us, summer won’t be far away. Taking advantage of National Car Care Month to ensure your vehicle is safe and in good working order means you’ll be ready for summer vacation road trips.
Come see us at Sunset Ford. We services Fords in the entire Seattle-Puyallup area.
