Prepare Your Vehicle for Spring or summer
Winter can be brutal on your Porsche vehicle, with the weather becoming especially bad depending on where you live. Winter storms, sub-zero temperatures and worst of all, potholes. These things are not very good for your car’s health. Thankfully, we at Auto Palace Porsche understand that, and so we’ve come up with a list of our recommended auto care tips as you venture into the warmer seasons!
Give Your Car a Wash
Salt is commonly found in winter, used to melt ice and snow, and it can cause serious damage to your vehicle if left unchecked. Washing your vehicle regularly can prevent these issues, especially for your undercarriage. A highly rated car wash that has an undercarriage cleaner is highly recommended.
Check Your Alignment or Suspension
Driving over potholes, especially deep ones, can damage your vehicle’s alignment and suspension, making it quite difficult to drive. This issue is easily spotted if you notice that your car pulls to one side, or the steering wheel tends to vibrate as you drive, especially at high speeds. If you notice these things, consider taking your vehicle in to be checked and corrected. An alignment check and fix typically costs between $25 to $40.
Inspect Your Tires or Replace Them
After winter it is recommended that you check your tires air pressure and their tread, to see if they were worn down by a particularly bad season. This can be a key part of safety and handling, so it’s important to make sure that your tires are in good condition and rotated every 5,000 miles.
Hopefully, these tips help you be prepared for the changing of the seasons! There are plenty of other things that you can do to make sure that you have the best possible drive on the road as the weather warms up.
