In just a few short weeks, spring will have once again sprung. You’ll be ditching the heavy coats and scarfs for jackets and shorts, your car would appreciate that treatment too. The winter can be extremely hard on a vehicle, which is why we take steps to winterize and prepare them for the harsh weather. However, once the weather subsides, it’s time to once again prepare them for more pleasant climates and Jake Sweeney Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM in Cincinnati, OH wants to help you do just that.

Ice, snow, and salt damage can wreak havoc on the exterior of your vehicle. It can be difficult to wash it regularly during the winter due to low temperatures and the fact that it’s likely to get just as dirty the second you drive it next. Fortunately, this is less of a concern in the spring. All that salt is not just an eyesore, it can have a corrosive effect. The key is to not only get the parts you can see taken care of but pay special attention to the bottom of your car, as it takes the brunt of the abuse.

How often do you change your wiper blades? All of the winter precipitation can give them a major workout, and they don’t last forever. At the end of each winter, it’s probably time to get some new ones installed to ensure you maintain optimal visibility. We can help you find these, and other great car parts.

The cold weather can also deplete the various fluids that keep your car or truck a well-oiled machine. Speaking of which, if you haven’t recently done so, the start of spring is a great time for an oil change. While you’re having your fluids checked, be sure to have your tire pressure looked at as well—the cold can cause them to deflate faster than they would naturally.

At Jake Sweeney Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM, our car service center can take care of all of these concerns and more. Stop by today to get your car prepared for spring!
