With spring already on our heels, it’s time to start thinking about getting your car ready for warmer weather. Here at Ace Auto, your premier place for auto repairs in Lafayette, CA, we’ve got a few things you can check now that most of the cooler temperatures are behind us.
1. Check to make sure your wheels are properly aligned as this will make sure your car handles correctly. It’s also a great way to ensure that your tires won’t wear out prematurely. Have you noticed that your car pulls to the left or right or doesn’t drive straight ahead when your steering wheel is centered? It’s a good idea to go ahead and bring your car in to Ace Auto.
2. Check your tire tread! This is something you should keep an eye on throughout the year. You should always make sure you have adequate tread and that there’s even wear. You can check your tread by placing the edge of a penny into the tread near the center of the tire. If the tread doesn’t cover any of Honest Abe’s head, it’s time to bring your car in for new tires.
3. Make sure your battery is strong! The colder months are particularly hard on your battery so now is a great time to check it. If your battery is older than 4 years old, it may be a good time to consider replacing it.
