How To Care For Your Nissan Car This Spring

 
Whether you drive a 2018 Nissan Altima or a pre-owned Nissan Sentra, the best way to keep it running great and looking great for as long as possible is to follow suggested maintenance schedules. In your vehicle's handbook, this schedule tends to base itself on your car's mileage, but there are certain times of year when an extra checkup really can do Nissan cars some good.

One of those times is in the spring after the last of the winter freeze has left us for good. Usually the weather is fairly mild here in Silver Spring, MD, but 2017 and 2018 have been exceptional in terms of cold temps and frozen precipitation. Knowing that, there are a few things drivers can do in terms of maintenance this spring to keep their vehicles running smoothly now that the worst of the winter weather is behind us.

For starters, we suggest checking your tire pressure, since the cold air causes tire pressure to shrink. Vehicles get better gas mileage on properly-inflated tires, and it also lowers your risk for getting a flat.

Also, any auto parts with rubber can be affected by cold temperatures and ice and snow. Windshield wipers, for example, can crack and lose their ability to do what they were intended to do. Under the hood, there are belts and hoses that can undergo the same kind of damage.

If you're not sure how to check and/or replace these things, feel free to bring your vehicle by the Herb Gordon Nissan service department so one of our specialists can take a look at everything for you. They will get you all set up for spring so your Nissan car or SUV can run at peak efficiency through the best driving months of the year!
