Spring has officially arrived in Connecticut, and we at Paul Miller Nissan are thrilled that it’s finally here. We love seeing the flowers bloom in Fairfield and the green leaves returning to the trees. As we head outdoors to enjoy the beautiful weather, it is important to remember to take care of your Nissan. Here are a few things you can do to prepare your Nissan for spring this year.
Wash your Nissan
Now that spring is here, wash away the remaining effects of winter hanging onto your car. Give your Nissan sedan or SUV a thorough scrub, and do not forget the undercarriage where road salt can accumulate and cause rust. This will help prevent corrosion. Finish off the wash with a fresh coat of wax to protect the paint.
Keep up with maintenance
Be sure to stick to your Nissan vehicle’s prescribed maintenance schedule. Get the oil changed, wipers replaced, tires rotated, and filters changed if you haven’t done so since last year.
Check the tire condition
If you switched to winter tires, now is the time to swap those back out and have the all-season tires remounted. No matter what kind of tires your Nissan has, you should check the air pressure and tread depth to ensure they’re still safe to use. If you need a new set, get them now from Paul Miller Nissan before you’re caught in a dangerous rainstorm.
Schedule an HVAC inspection
With winter in the rearview mirror, warmer days will be back in full force. This means you will be using your car’s air conditioning more frequently here in Connecticut as temperatures rise. Have the system inspected by a professional mechanic here at Paul Miller Nissan to make sure it can make it through to the heat of the summer.
To start spring off on the right foot, bring your Nissan to our dealership in Fairfield, Connecticut. Our helpful service technicians will give it a seasonal checkup to ensure it’s ready for your next road trip.
