Now is the time to get your Chevy ready for Spring!

Published on Mar 2, 2023 by Alex Gaziano

As we get ready to “spring ahead”, now is a good time to start thinking about a good “spring cleaning” for your Chevy!


Our Certified Service Managers have compiled some tips to keep your vehicle in great shape!


Have your tires checked during our Spring Tire Event!

Tire tread wear should be checked for uneven or irregular wear, as well as cuts and bruises along the sidewalls. Your car’s alignment should be checked every year to increase fuel economy and handling and reduce tire wear.


Schedule a Full Tune-up

Schedule a full tune-up with our Service Team and we will do a complete inspection of your vehicle. Remember: frequent tuneups at regular intervals cost less than a major tune up, due to neglect.


Replace Wiper Blades

For optimal wiper performance and safety, replace windshield wiper blades every six months or when cracked, cut, torn, streaking or chattering.


Breaks should be inspected annually 

You should inspect the brake system each year and the brake linings, rotors, and drums every time you change the oil.



Oil, Filters and Fluids

In addition to checking and replacing oil after every fill-up, your transmission fluid, power steering fluid, brake fluid, coolant fluid, and windshield washer fluid should also be checked. When you stop in for your oil change, this is something our Service Technicians will automatically do for you.


Battery Connection

Your battery connection should be clean, tight and corrosion-free. Batteries that are more than three years old should be tested, and if needed, replaced.


Inspect for Exhaust Leaks

If there is an unusual noise in your exhaust system, have it checked for leaks, damage and broken supports or hangers. Exhaust leaks can be dangerous and need to be corrected immediately.


Steering and Suspension Inspection

The steering and suspension system, including shock absorbers and struts, as well as chassis parts, such as ball joints and tie rod ends, should be inspected every April (or at least annually).

This is a perfect opportunity to get your car or truck in for routine service, so you can hit the road for Spring and Summer road trips!


We have the right fit to keep your Chevy fit!
