While it may not feel like spring in Ohio quite yet, winter is at its tail end, and it’s time to start prepping our cars for warmer weather. Spring cleaning isn’t just for your home, you know! Let’s use our combined car care knowledge to get you started so your Mazda vehicle is running efficiently all season long.

Come on down to our Mazda service center near Ashland to take care of those routine services and repairs you’ve been procrastinating on the last few months. And if pothole season has taken its toll on your car or SUV, we can set you up with a quick tire rotation and alignment check. We’ll also inspect your oil and oil filter to determine if your vehicle needs a fresh supply or a filter change.

With spring coming up, you’ll also want to have your battery and air conditioning unit checked to ensure everything is up to par and ready for the warm temperatures. A battery can get severely affected in colder weather, which is why it’s so important to have it tested after winter; we’ll also clean off any corrosion.

One last important, but commonly overlooked, task for spring car care is cleaning. It’s nice to have the interior of your vehicle, including your floors, dash, and windows, all polished, but what’s even more necessary is cleaning the exterior. Salt, dirt, and cinders can cause a nasty buildup on the exterior and underneath, which when left untreated, can lead to rust and other deterioration.

We hope these tips help steer you in the right direction—toward a cleaner and better maintained Mazda vehicle. Choose us to be your nearest Mazda dealer in the Wooster area, and you’ll be glad you did. We look forward to working with you on all your spring vehicle preparations. Come see us today!
