How Are You Celebrating National Car Care Month?
April is the time of the year when you start giving your MINI some extra care and attention. It’s a month when winter has officially come to an end, long road-trips have begun, and National Car Care Month is observed.
Basic maintenance can improve your vehicle’s safety and dependability, while preventing costly issues down the road. No matter what MINI model you are driving, take note of our car care tips this National Car Care Month:
1) Replace Tires
The first thing you should check are your tires. This includes checking tire pressure, the wear on your treads and look for any cuts or other damage. You may have to align your tires depending on the wear but if you notice any significant damage, make sure to get your tires replaced. Order your tires.
2) Check the Brake System
During the cold, wintery days, you may have hit your brakes more often than usual due to the icy or snowy roads. Make sure to check your brakes for any grinding noise or if you’re stopping distance has increased. For proper working of your brake system, schedule an inspection today.
3) Check Fluids
There are many different fluids that should be checked out. Now is your opportunity to get a complete overhaul on your fluids. Make sure your brake, transmission, power steering, coolant and windshield washer fluids are all filled and don’t forget to refill when necessary.
4) Fix the Small Repairs
During the winter months, ice and dirt can cause stains, chips, and cracks throughout your vehicle. If left unattended, those can grow with changes in the temperature and turn into major issues. Get a free quote on all repairs.
