When you own a vehicle, maintenance tasks should be performed year-round. In the spring, wash and wax to get rid of winter grime, purchase new windshield wipers, and make sure the air conditioning is working properly. During the summer, check coolant levels and for leaks in the radiator and hoses. In the fall, make sure the heating system and both interior and exterior lights are working properly. During the winter, prepare an emergency kit to store in your vehicle and look at tire pressure and depth. By taking care of your vehicle during each season, you will help it last longer and drive safer on the roadways.
