Spring Vehicle Maintenance

Have Your Spring Vehicle Maintenance Performed At BMW Of West St. Louis

As winter fades and spring finally makes its appearance, you'll want to shake off the dust and debris that winter has left behind and start the new season with a fresh new attitude and like-new car. This spring cleaning thinking also applies to your vehicle, especially when you've been driving through the Manchester MO, St. Louis, Wildwood MO, and Chesterfield MO wintery weather covered roads.

What Type Of Spring Vehicle Maintenance Should I Have Performed On My Vehicle?

Here at BMW of West St. Louis we recommend going through the following list of spring vehicle maintenance suggestions to ensure that your car, truck, SUV, or van is ready for whatever weather the spring and summer brings upon you.

  • Wash Your Vehicle - Most likely you'll want to wash your vehicle anyways, but a thorough wash is important after winter travels because it will help to get rid of any salt or grime that was left behind during the icy road conditions. Make sure to include the undercarriage as well to try to deter any rust from forming later.
  • Schedule An Alignment And Brake Inspection

    Spring is the time for potholes and sometimes these unavoidable nuisances can lead to your vehicle getting unaligned. If you notice that your car tends to veer in one direction when it's supposed to be straight, you may need to schedule an appointment with us.

    While we're realigning your tires, allow us to inspect your brakes to ensure that everything is in good working order and that your brake pads have plenty of life left in them.

  • Switch To Summer Tires

    If you've been rocking winter tires all season, you'll want to switch them over to summer after you're sure the snow is gone for the time being. Driving with your winter tires on in the warm months can cause them to wear and lose their tough winter tread.

  • Change Your Oil And Check The Other Fluids

    If you've been putting off your oil change until it warmed up, now is a good time to get it done. You should also make sure that the other fluids in your vehicle, like the cooling, brake, transmission, and windshield washer, are full, clean, and aren't leaking.

If you'd like assistance with any of these routine maintenance items, feel free to schedule an appointment with our service center or stop by our BMW of West St. Louis dealership if you have any questions.
