Prepping Your Car for Spring

Auto Repair Shop.

At long last, spring has finally sprung in Decatur, AL! That means it’s the best time of year to hit the road and indulge your wanderlust. Before you take a road trip to parts unknown, make sure that your car or truck is in top-flight condition. The passionate team of experts working in our Toyota service center at Serra Toyota of Decatur are here to help you ensure your summertime road trips are nothing but fun.

There are some steps you can take at home to make sure that your current vehicle is running well:

  • Wash and Wax. Give your car a little facelift — and protect your vehicle’s paint job and body — by washing and waxing the vehicle.
  • Check the Fluids. Make sure that you’re checking the levels of all your fluids from power steering to window washing.
  • Replace Your Windshield Wipers. It’s always a good idea to be prepared for a sudden rainstorm in the spring and summer.
  • Check the Lights. Make sure your turn signals, brake lights, headlights, and interior lighting are all working as expected.
  • Check the Tires. Grab a quarter and stick it into your tire tread with Washington’s head pointed down. If you can still see the first president’s scalp, you need to get new tires.

While you can take several steps at home, your best bet before hitting the road is to drop by a trusted team of automotive technicians. After all, a talented professional is the best person to check your vehicle’s brakes, change the oil, replace any filters, and any number of small items that require a trained eye.

At Serra Toyota of Decatur, we’re ready and waiting to make sure that your vehicle is ready to handle any situation when you go on your next big adventure. Stop by our Toyota dealership in Decatur, AL and let our experts take care of all your automotive needs!
