“In like a lion, out like a lamb.” If the age-old adage is true, winter should be wrapping up at any time, and the springtime will be setting in. And when it comes to the toll winter takes on your vehicle, comparing it to a lion is pretty accurate. We’ve got a few helpful tips to get your vehicle prepared for the start of spring.

Our Subaru service center near Stafford, NJ can help make sure your vehicle is good to go for the much anticipated “lamb” portion of the month — spring! Here are the maintenance issues we address at Lester Glenn Subaru as winter comes to a close:

  • Tires: They need to be rotated as tires oftentimes endure major wear and tear after driving on slick and uneven surfaces, not to mention the potholes that form during winter. We also examine the tread and pressure to make sure it’s adequate.
  • Battery: We check to make sure it’s still fully charged since it can weaken in the cold.
  • Air Conditioning: We make sure it’s ready to work as the weather warms up, and we change out the filters.
  • Windshield Wipers: We make sure they haven’t worn after being covered in slush and ice. Plus, we ensure the wiper fluid is full.

You also want to make sure to give your vehicle a good cleaning. You don’t want to leave any of the ice treatments, whether salt or de-icer, from the road on your Subaru vehicle so you don’t end up with erosion and rust on your car.
