Don’t Forget Your Spring Inspection!

April 13th, 2018 by

Your car takes a beating all year long. Summer heat takes its toll with high temperatures and glaring sunshine. But winter weather is even more harsh. Rough roads, extreme cold, and stiff engine start-ups do a number on your vehicle, even if you drive a Toyota. You should get your vehicle checked over regularly to make sure there aren’t any issues that need your attention. What better time is there than a spring inspection?

Why Get a Spring Inspection?

The worst weather of the year is over, and you’re approaching another season that’s tough on your Toyota. The spring-time lull is a great time to assess and correct any issues that may have arisen.

What’s Involved in a Spring Inspection

A spring inspection takes a look at your whole vehicle. If there are loose suspension or steering parts, leaking struts, oil leaks, low tire tread, or any other issues that winter could have contributed towards, the inspection will find it. Is your engine block heater still working? That gets tested. And your coolant strength should also be checked to ensure it’s up to snuff.

It’s not just correcting problems that popped up in the cold weather. A spring inspection looks forward to the hot, sunny summer weather too. Your Toyota will get checked for its belt condition, wheel alignment, any warning lights, and more.

It’s also a good time to have your air conditioning tested. If you noticed it wasn’t working quite as well at the end of last summer, it might need attention. Whether it’s A/C repairs or simply recharging the refrigerant, you’ll want it working its best when the temperatures start to climb.
