It’s National Vehicle Maintenance Month!

Spring is here, and most of us are looking forward to the warmer weather that lies ahead. We tend to get our spring cleaning done during this time, but have you considered that your car might need some love too?


April is National Vehicle Maintenance Month, which means it is a great time to start thinking about what you can do to make your car love you! Our cars are a great investment, and if you want to maximize their life and save yourself in the long run, follow these great tips during National Vehicle Maintenance Month!

Our Best Tips

  • Clean Your Car: Cleaning your car can go such a long way because it is a great way to spot something off going on in your vehicle. You can start by giving your vehicle a good exterior wash. By giving your car an exterior wash, you can wash away the buildup that could have occurred during the winter. Additionally, cleaning the interior of your vehicle with a washcloth and vacuum will maintain the value of your car for years to come.


  • Check Your Fluids: If you're like most people, then you know that your car fails to tell you when its fluids are low. It is essential to check your car's brake, power steering, transmission, coolant, and even windshield wiper fluids. Your car's fluids can have drained faster than usual due to harsh weather conditions. Checking and refilling your car's fluids where necessary is a great way to participate in National Vehicle Maintenance Month!


  • Inspect Your Tires: Tires can be tricky. We recommend that you inspect for scratches, nails, and unusual wear. You should also check the tire pressure of your tires as tires tend to lose air pressure during cold months and harsh weather conditions. If you suspect your tires are in bad shape after your inspection, consider getting a new set of wheels. Additionally, your mechanic should have your wheels aligned at least once a year. 

Why Participating in National Vehicle Maintenance Month is Worth It
