Spring is Here! Top Maintenance Tips to Prepare Your European Car for Summer Fun

The sun is shining and the snow banks on the edges of the Garden State Parkway are melting. It's time to get your Audi A5 or Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet ready for weekend road trips down to the shore. Lincoln Ave Auto in Fair Lawn, NJ is available to take care of these simple services as your local automotive expert and repair shop. .

Inspecting Your Tires and Wipers

If you drive your sedan or SUV year round, now is a good time to make sure that sandy winter roads have not worn away the tread of your tires. If you have less than 4/32" of tread left, it is time to replace them. If you roll with summer tires and your luxury ride has been stored over the winter, you need to check for tread wear and cracking sidewalls on tires older than six years.

Make sure that your rain-sensing wipers keep your view clear by changing out the blades before summer thunderstorms begin.

Brakes, Coolant Levels, and an Oil Change

When you use your Jaguar as a daily driver, the stop and go traffic on the New York Thruway and in the tunnels really puts your brakes to the test. A spring safety brake inspection by a licensed automotive professional will determine if you should change out your brake pads or service your rotors before an epic family road trip.

Have the coolant checked in your radiator, especially on vehicles older than three years. Have it flushed to better protect your engine while sitting in traffic on hot summer days.

Test your air conditioning system. Sometimes a simple a/c recharge will restore function without a lengthy service visit.

Don't forget to have the engine oil and filter changed. Many modern vehicles can run between 5,000 to 7,500 miles between changes. But if it has been longer than six months, and you are always driving in the city, a quick oil change will stop excessive wear and tear inside your engine.

A Good Car Wash and Detail can Bring Needed Repairs to Light

Finally, take your baby to your favorite detail shop and have all the winter grime removed. A thorough wash and polish is the perfect time to discover scratches in your bumpers, paint chips, and even minor cracks in your windshield. If you see something that is out of place, don't hesitate to bring your European car or SUV to your skilled automotive mechanic for service.

Now that your car has had a thorough spring auto maintenance service and is looking its best, you are prepared to drive all summer long while avoiding unexpected repairs.
