Helping Baltimore Area Drivers Preserve Their Cars

With spring finally upon us, it's time for a little vehicle rehabilitation. Though YOU just have to hang your coat up in the closet, your car requires a little more love and care. Now that winter is behind us, it's time to clean up the wrath mother nature wrought upon your vehicle. With a little help from Apple Ford Lincoln near Baltimore, you'll be all set in no time. Just follow the simple instructions below.

  • Scrub it down: Because the roads are coated with salt throughout the winter months, it's a good idea to give your car a thorough washing. Salt can damage the car's paint; you wouldn't want your car to look older than it is simply because it endured a harsh winter.

  • Check your tire pressure: Cold weather leads to underinflated tires, and the onset of warm weather may over-inflate them. Just make sure everything's good to go before the temperatures really start to rise.

  • Replace wiper blades: This one's pretty self-explanatory. Your wiper blades were likely put to the test during the harsher months; now that we're done with ice and snow, it's a good time to replace them.

  • Wash the underbody: Winter driving leads to a buildup of salt underneath your car; salt, dirt, and other undesirable minerals will lead to corrosion if left unattended.

  • Refill fluids: Make sure you're all set on oil, windshield wiper fluid, etc.
