With spring in the air, you're undoubtedly daydreaming about taking the long way home and driving along the backroads to enjoy the sights and sounds of the new season. Before you opt for that ride long, however, get your vehicle de-winterized and spring-ready! Yes, it’s time to have your vehicle serviced to ensure the winter months didn’t put too much wear and tear on it. Whether you purchased your vehicle at
or simply live in the neighborhood and prefer to go to a local service department that you can count on, our
can take care of all your vehicle maintenance needs – no matter what the make or model.
Here are the top items on the Spring Vehicle Service Checklist that should be done soon:
Your vehicle’s brakes should be able to stop on a dime. If they squeak when you put pressure on the pedal or if you have to put a lot of energy into braking before your vehicle comes to a complete stop, it’s probably time to have them replaced. Our service techs will test them and let you know for certain. No one cares how fast your car can go if it can’t stop when you want it to! If necessary, they can be replaced immediately while you wait!
Most daily drivers never think twice about their car’s battery until it doesn’t work. The last thing you want to deal with when getting ready to drive home from work, take the kids to their soccer match, or go for a spring evening’s long drive is being stranded somewhere because of a dead battery. The certified technicians at Kutztown Cars will inspect your battery carefully – ensuring the connections are snug, it’s full charged, and it's situated properly. If it needs to be replaced, they’ll let you know that, too.
Since your vehicle’s weight is not distributed evenly, its tires wear out in different places at different times. For your safety and the safety of your passengers and other drivers on the road, it is critical that you have your tires rotated before spring, that they are inflated to the proper pressure, and that their treads are not worn and in need of replacement. Most vehicle owners don’t look that closely at their tires on a regular basis. When you bring your vehicle to the Service Department at Kutztown Cars, our technicians will check all four tires thoroughly. If they find a tire has irreparable damage, they’ll let you know and you’ll be able to purchase new ones without having to go anywhere else.
Just like every other component on your vehicle that makes it safe and enjoyable to drive, the air conditioning system also needs to be ready to work when you’re ready to turn it on. It’s not unusual to have sultry days in the spring and, if you or anyone in your family suffers from seasonal allergies, you’ll appreciate the option of rolling up your windows and turning on our air conditioning. The worst time to discover your vehicle’s fan or AC unit is not working is when you need it. Our service techs will check this thoroughly for you so that you don’t have to think twice about it.
Maintaining the integrity, longevity, and performance of your vehicle depends upon two critical factors -- choosing a service department that you trust, and consistently scheduling your vehicle’s seasonal and routine maintenance appointments. Our certified and experienced service technicians are here to troubleshoot, diagnose, and resolve your vehicle’s particular issues quickly, safely, and cost-effectively.
