Have you started spring cleaning your home yet? Did you know it’s important to give your car a little extra TLC every spring too? These are a few steps to take to get your vehicle spring-ready, according to our MINI service experts at MINI of Bedford.

Inspect Your Tires

Our tires tackle snow and sleet in Bedford winters. It’s important to inspect your tires to make sure they haven’t gotten too worn and don’t have any unusual wear. You’ll still want adequate tread through our rainy spring days too.

Check Your Battery

Cold weather can truly strain your car’s battery. As it starts to warm up, check to make sure there isn’t too much damage done. You want to make sure that your vehicle will start when you need it to, so make this a priority.

Visit the Car Wash

As we mentioned, your spring cleaning should extend to your car. Give the exterior a good wash to get rid of all the gunk and road salt left over from winter. You also want to give the cabin a thorough detailing, clean and vacuum all of the surfaces, and add a fresh air freshener.

Top Off Your Fluids

Now is also a great time to check the fluids in your vehicle to make sure they’re at an adequate level. Don’t forget to check your owner’s manual to see if it’s time to replace your fluids instead of simply topping them off.

The fluids in your vehicle include:

  • Motor oil
  • Transmission fluid
  • Power steering fluid
  • Coolant
  • Brake fluid
  • Windshield wiper fluid
