This time of year is a great time to give your Volkswagen a fresh start. As we say goodbye to winter weather, it is important for you to know that some maintenance is required to make sure your vehicle is ready for the warmer months ahead. The team at Romay's Auto Service is excited to share some tips on how to freshen up your Volkswagen for spring.
Spring Clean Your Volkswagen
The first thing you need to do is to give your Volkswagen a thorough cleaning, both inside and out. You can start by washing your car with a mild soap and water, and please make sure to scrub the wheels and tires as well. Then, use a clay bar to remove contaminants and give your car a smooth surface. Finally, wax your Volkswagen to protect the paint and give it a shiny finish.
Replace the Motor Oil
Changing the oil in your Volkswagen is an essential part of car maintenance. A good rule of thumb is to change the oil every 5,000 miles or six months, whichever comes first. Fresh oil helps keep your Volkswagen's engine running its best and improves fuel efficiency.
Check the Brakes
Spring is an excellent time to check your Volkswagen's brake system. If you hear any unusual noises, or if your brake pedal feels squishy or requires more pressure to stop the vehicle, you should bring your Volkswagen into Romay's Auto Service for service.
Check the Tires
We recommend checking the tire pressure of your tires and making sure it is at the recommended level. Proper tire pressure ensures that your Volkswagen's tires last longer and that you have better fuel efficiency. And don't forget to inspect the tires for any visible damage, such as punctures or cracks, and replace any tires that look worn out.
Replace Your Volkswagen's Cabin Air Filter
Replacing the cabin air filter in your Volkswagen is another important part of car maintenance. The cabin air filter keeps dust, pollen, and other contaminants out of your car's cabin, improving air quality. Replacing the cabin air filter is easy, and your Volkswagen's manual will have instructions on how to do it.
