Get oil changes and tire rotations when the manual says to! The end of winter is a great time to clean your car up, remove any built-up salt and slush from the undercarriage, check your fluids, inflate your tires, and get new windshield wipers if it’s been more than six months. Winter is harsh, so give your car some TLC.

When it comes to car maintenance, you want to make sure you’re following the guidelines in your owner’s manual for oil changes, tire rotations, and so on. If you notice your car acting strangely, like having trouble starting, take it to a technician quickly so you can take care of it before the weather gets hotter. Heat can be just as rough on your car as cold!

Have your car inspected and check to make sure the battery is working and your belts are in good shape. Now is the time to get these things fixed, before the problems get worse!

If you need a spring inspection done to prepare your car for spring, bring it to Gossett VW of Germantown’s renowned service department.
