Spring Maintenance Tips

Before springtime comes, you want to do specific maintenance on your vehicle. Certain tasks are better to do at this time of year than others. The team at Volkswagen Clear Lake can assist you with purchasing supplies for this and conduct routine maintenance necessary to keep your car or truck in good working condition.


Key Maintenance Items for Spring

When preparing your vehicle for spring road trips, there are several key items to focus on for preventative maintenance. The most important of these are:


  • Air Conditioning Check – If you live in a region where it gets moderately or extremely hot, you’ll want to ensure that your air conditioning is working well. A technician can examine the system and make any necessary repairs or replacements of fluids or parts. If you need a full replacement of the system, we can determine this quickly and try to make the costs reasonable for your budget.
  • Wiper Blades – Winter definitely does a number on wiper blades. They are used to scrape not only snow off your windshield but also sometimes to cut through ice. When this happens, they can sometimes snap or become weaker and eventually break. Here at Volkswagen Clear Lake, we sell wiper blades and switch them out for you. We also can replace your wiper fluid so that you’re ready to go for the spring.
  • Oil Changes – Oil changes should be done about once a year or every 10,000 miles for your average vehicle using synthetic motor oil. The old oil can accumulate debris that develops sludge, creating friction, drastically affecting your engine’s performance. Other issues can occur when you don’t replace your oil often enough. Bring your Volkswagen in for regular maintenance right before spring since it includes an oil change.
  • Check Tire Pressure – Tires have a lot of wear and tear after the long winter. It’s essential to have an expert check them out to determine their pressure level. We can make sure your tires are properly inflated and use special equipment to assess the tread on your tires. Tires with low tread and low pressure can lead to uneven wear and possibly cause an accident. It’s critical to have this inspection done at least once a year.
  • Clean the Mats – Your car or truck mats develop a lot of dirt, debris, and other things you don’t want on them during the winter months. Why not clean them off right before spring? They’ll look, smell, and feel brand new. If your mats are worn down enough, replace these with a new set.
