How to Take Care of Your Audi During the Spring
How to Take Care of Your Audi During the SpringDuring the spring the weather can have consequences on your Audi, especially if you haven’t prepared it for the season. In the following article, we will state what is necessary as spring maintenance for your Audi vehicle.
Let’s start off by saying that if you were using winter tires you absolutely have to change them for the spring. Winter tires are not designed for roads during the spring season. However, if you were using all-season tires, you don’t have to change them necessarily, only if there isn’t enough tread left for a good grip on the road. You can check the tread with the penny or quarter test. If you do not feel comfortable checking yourself, you can take your vehicle to a mechanic and he would be able to determine for you.
Due to the fact that the winter can be harsh, it may have taken a toll on the alignment of the wheels, especially if you hit any potholes while driving. If needed, you might have to get an alignment of the wheels. You can determine that yourself by noticing if the vehicle starts drifting off to one side while you are driving.
Change the oil and filter of your Audi. This is one of the easiest, cheapest, and best things you can do for your Audi. By doing so you will get better performance from your engine. It is also a great way to protect the engine in the long run.
Change the windshield wiper blades. I know this doesn’t seem like a big deal but it actually is. Due to the ice and snow that needed to be removed from your windshield during the winter, the wiper blades have probably lost their integrity, so do yourself a favor and change them.
Last but not least, you will need to wash any traces of salt from your Audi because it can be damaging to the undercarriage and the paint of your marvelous vehicle.
Take care of the amazing car you own and have a great spring filled with unforgettable road trips.
