Your Spring-summer Maintenance Checklist

Your Spring-summer Maintenance Checklist

Your Spring-summer Maintenance Checklist

As the snow melts and the days grow longer, Parkway Hyundai invites you to embrace the warmer weather with open arms—and an open garage door. It's time for your vehicle's spring-summer maintenance, a crucial step to ensure your ride remains in peak condition as we transition from the icy grip of winter to the sunny embrace of summer. Here's a comprehensive guide to keep your car running smoothly, tailored for our Canadian roads and weather conditions.


Tires: The Foundation of Your Journey

The shift in seasons signals the perfect time to swap out those winter tires for all-season or summer variants. This prevents unnecessary wear and keeps you safe on the road. While at it, a quick check on tire pressure and tread depth will ensure your vehicle remains anchored firmly to the pavement. Rotating your tires now could also maximize their lifespan, keeping your journeys smooth and your wallet happy.


Oil: The Lifeblood of Your Engine

Regular oil changes, ideally every 8,000 to 16,000 kilometres, are non-negotiable for the health of your vehicle's engine. Fresh oil free from impurities is crucial for maintaining optimal performance. With the engine being the heart of your vehicle, consider this maintenance tip a top priority.


Brakes: Your Safety Net

After battling winter's harsh conditions, your brakes deserve a thorough inspection to ensure they're ready for the road ahead. Well-maintained brakes are not just a cost-saving measure but a lifesaver, ensuring your safety and that of others on the road.


Wipers: Your Window to the World

Winter's wrath can leave your wipers in a less than ideal condition. If your windshield remains streaky after a wipe, it's time for a change. Take advantage of service departments offering free wiper installations and keep your view clear and unobstructed.


Battery: The Spark of Life

Cooler temperatures take a toll on your battery, reducing its efficiency. A quick check-up can prevent the heartache of a non-starting car, ensuring your vehicle is as ready for adventure as you are.


General Checks: The Finishing Touches

A comprehensive spring clean of your vehicle goes beyond the mechanical. Clearing out mats, checking for cracks in windshields and mirrors, testing lights, and ensuring your air conditioning is ready for the heat are all steps in reviving your car after winter's slumber. Full detailing will make your car look and feel fresh and protect it from the lingering effects of salt and ice.
