Spring Car Care Tips

The harsh winter weather can do a seriously number on your car, especially if it’s an older model. In order to get it into tip-top shape for spring, love and attention is all your car needs. Best of all, getting your car ready for the fast-coming warmer weather is easy. Here are a few quick spring car care tips from at Avery Greene Honda’s service department!

  1. under the hoodUnder the Hood – Winter is a harsh season and if you parked outside, it’s time to take a look under the hood. Make sure to check all of your belts and hoses for wear and cracks. Verify that your coolant isn’t too old to ensure your car won’t overheat. If you aren’t car-savvy, a dealership service department can check for you. Better safe than sorry!
  2. Wiper Blades – Ensuring your wiper blades can handle the spring rains should be a top priority. You never know when you’ll be driving through a storm, after all. Look at the blades for cracks and wear. Ice can do a number on your wiper blades so don’t skimp on new ones.
  3. Wash – Last, but not least, wash your car. Dirt, grime, and road salt can build up over winter and each can do damage to your paint if left unattended. A simple car wash will remove most of the residue and leave you with a sparkling car!

However, beaches do come with some inherent dangers, so it’s important to keep these beach safety tips in mind:

  • Always follow local beach rules, obey any posted signs, and listen to all lifeguards.
  • Never swim alone, and make sure that someone you know always has their eye on you.
  • Drink lots of fresh, clean water (not saltwater!) to stay hydrated, and be sure to frequently lather yourself with sunscreen.
  • Don’t leave your belongings unattended on a public beach where they could be moved or stolen.
  • Never, ever leave children unattended on the beach, especially in the water.
  • Take swimming lessons, not only ensuring your ability to swim but also so you may help others in danger.
