Is Your Vehicle Ready For the Nicer Weather?

Spring Car Care Tips

The nice weather  is   here and its a good time to do some simple, and inexpensive car maintenance and cleaning.

Try these tips...

* take your car to a hand held (wand type) pressure car wash, for about $2.50 in quarters you can wash down the outside really well, and be sure to spray inside the wheel wells and under the rocker panels (beneath the doors and under the car) as mud and salt get stuck there

* when you are done, give it a good interior vacuum and clean out any stuff left over from the long winter, this costs about $1.50. Don't forget to check the trunk for dirt and possible moisture.

* try a Jiffy Lube for an oil change, usually $25 or so, a clean motor is a happy motor

* look around the car for chips or rust spots, if you see some, try A&A Auto Stores or AutoZone for matching touch up paint, about $8.00

* lastly, look at your tires, do you have good tread on them? they should all be the same size, but they don't have to be the same manufacturer, if you need tires...look for sales or try a used tire store or even "Harrys U Pull It" for good used tires, used tire prices can vary...but they start at about $35.00 each, quite a savings

There are other things you can do, but this is a good start.
