Winter takes a toll, not just on people but on vehicles, too! From more frequent potholes to harmful road salt, cars face a lot of potential hazards, so spring VW maintenance is important to keeping your vehicle not only fun to drive but safe, too. Here’s what you need to know.
Fine-Tune the Suspension
All that bouncing through potholes affects your Volkswagen’s suspension, which in turn affects vehicle handling. Keep your car comfortable and easily maneuverable by asking your auto specialist to check the suspension of your car.
Get New Windshield Wipers
It’s easy to overlook the importance of your windshield wipers on a sunny day. But sleet, freezing rain and snow ultimately lead to heavy wear and tear on your wiper blades. Be ready for safer driving in the rain by replacing your windshield wipers and refilling the washer fluid.
Check Tire Pressure and Treads
Low temperatures affect the performance of your tires, as do winter road conditions. Spring is a great time to inspect the tread depth and inflation. If you see that you’re adding air more often than you expect or your treads seem low, book an appointment for tire service. If everything looks okay, add tire rotation to your next oil change to ensure even tread wear.
