Important Spring Maintenance Tips for Your Car

Spring Maintenance Tips | Toronto, ON

Snow is quickly becoming a thing of the past as we say goodbye to winter. As the temperatures begin to rise, it’s time to start thinking about getting your vehicle ready for spring. Here are some spring maintenance tips to keep in mind as you prepare for warmer weather.

Switch out your winter tires

Spring means less snow and ice. It also means that you no longer need the extra traction your winter tires provide. Bring your car in to Downtown Chrysler to get your winter tires switched out for all-season ones.

Give your vehicle a spring cleaning

Salt and winter grime build up over the course of the cold season, potentially leading to rust and other damage. Give your car a thorough cleaning both inside and out to get yourself ready for the spring — and don’t forget the undercarriage.

Check your fluids

Make sure your vehicle is up to date on its routine maintenance and check its vital fluids, including oil, coolant, and wiper fluid.

Get your brakes checked out

Winter road conditions can affect your braking system, so make sure you get it checked out as the weather warms up. That way, you can be confident that your vehicle will stop the way you need it to.

Put these steps on your to-do list for spring, and be sure to visit our top-notch service department here at Downtown Chrysler for all your vehicle’s maintenance needs.

The Cold Is Coming, So Get Your Car Ready for Winter

Get Your Car Ready for Winter | Toronto, ON

As winter’s cold starts to edge out the brisk autumn air, it’s time to start thinking about preparing your vehicle for lower temperatures. To help you out, we’ve put together a list of ways you can get your car ready for winter.

Switch out tires. During the winter, the roads become slick with ice, snow, and rain. Get the best traction ever and let Downtown Chrysler switch out your all-season tires for winter ones. They will help improve your grip on the road as the weather gets worse.

Prepare yourself. Emergencies happen when you least expect them to, which is why you should have an emergency kit in your car with items like a shovel, jumper cables, ice scraper, a flashlight, a bag of sand, flares, and warm clothing.

Check your battery. When temperatures drop, so does the efficiency of your battery. If you’re due to get a new battery, have it installed before winter sets in.

Fill your car’s fluids. Fluids are important to keep your car running — and will help it stay in tiptop shape throughout the winter. Top off your windshield wiper fluid to help keep your visibility up, and fill your antifreeze to the appropriate level.
