We use microfiber towels to clean the car, which is gentler and prevents scratches. If you’d like more steps on how to clean your vehicle, take a look at this article:
It’s important to switch out those winter tires since they’ll get compromised on dry roads. Once the winter tires are removed, give them a good clean. We also recommend storing them in a dry and cool place, ready to be used for next winter!
Depending on the area you live, you may have used all-season tires rather than winter tires during these cold months. We recommend checking the tread, tire pressure, alignment and so on. This ensures your tires are good to go and in top shape for spring and summer.

The car battery is especially vulnerable during cold winter months. So it’s a good idea to check your battery and make sure it’s in good shape and safe for spring and summer. Is your battery older than 4 years? Does it take a few seconds to start your engine? If that’s the case, contact us for an appointment, we offer free car battery replacement estimates.
Take a look at your brakes
Before road trip season starts, make sure your brakes are working properly. If you hear strange sounds coming from your brakes or see the “brake check” light on your dashboard, it most likely means you’ll need new brake pads. Come by the shop for an inspection so we can make sure your car is ready and safe for the road.
Canadian winters can take a toll on wiper blades, the ice and sludge are not playing around. We recommend you check your wiper blades for any cracks and tears. Another sign it’s time to get new blades is by the sounds they make, either a squeaking noise or a high-pitched sound. If that sounds like you, it’s time for a fresh pair!
Another important step to get your vehicle ready for spring is to check up on your car’s lightning, exterior and interior. Make sure you check the headlights, signal lights, dashboard lights and so on.
Oil & Fluids
Take a look at your owner’s manual’s recommendation on how often to change the oil and the oil filter. These steps ensure your vehicle runs smoothly and properly. Ignoring this step can cause a lot of issues down the road such as poor engine performance, engine damages and leads to higher fuel consumption. There are many other essential fluids that need to be changed.
