Everyone here at Schwan Buick GMC Cadillac is looking forward to milder weather. While cleaning out your house (and garage, if you’re brave enough) this season, don’t forget to give your car some TLC. Here are three spring service tips to prep your ride for warmer-weather adventures in Mandan, North Dakota.
Keep the air fresh
Maybe you have seasonal allergies. Or maybe it’s just been a while since the last time you replaced your car’s cabin and engine air filters. Whatever the case, new air filters are one of the first maintenance items to put on your to-do list for spring. These useful parts help filter out dirt and other impurities from the air so both you and your car’s engine can enjoy cleaner air.
Replace wiper blades
Wiper blades that are in great shape will boost visibility when you’re behind the wheel — even when you’re driving through a North Dakota rainstorm. A good rule of thumb is to swap out old wiper blades for new ones every six months to a year, depending on how often you drive and what weather your car experiences on a regular basis.
Wash and detail
Hand wash your vehicle or take it through a local touchless car wash, to cleanse the exterior from salt and other debris that it has accumulated over the winter. Next, remove any trash and find new homes for any unnecessary stuff that’s gathered in the cabin area during the colder months in Mandan. Lastly, vacuum the upholstery and carpeting to remove any unwanted pet hair, dried leaves, and dirt.
