checking tire tread

1. Check Your Tires: After a long winter, it's crucial to inspect your tires for signs of wear and tear. Look for uneven tread wear, cracks, or bulges, and ensure that your tires are properly inflated. Consider rotating your tires to promote even wear and improve overall performance.

*TechNation will gladly check your tires and work with a local shop to get them on your vehicle. You may also stop by your local tire shop and ask them to take a look at the tread of your tires!



windshield with wipers

2. Replace Worn Wiper Blades: With spring showers on the horizon, it's essential to have functioning wiper blades. Inspect your wiper blades for any signs of damage or wear, such as streaking or skipping. If they're not providing clear visibility, it's time to replace them with fresh ones. (If your vehicle has a back wiper blade be sure to check that one as well!)

*TechNation can check your wiper blades while we are doing your diagnostic, and we can replace them at the time of your actual service! You can also stop by Advanced Auto, O'Rileys, Autozone or similar and they can help you pick out the blades that go on your vehicle!



testing a car battery

3. Test Your Battery: Cold weather can take a toll on your car's battery, so it's essential to test its health as spring rolls around. Check the connections for corrosion and ensure that the terminals are clean and secure. If your battery is more than three years old or showing signs of weakness, consider replacing it to prevent unexpected breakdowns.

vehicle brakes

4. Inspect Your Brakes: Your brakes are one of the most critical safety components of your vehicle, so it's essential to keep them in top condition. Inspect your brake pads and rotors for signs of wear, such as thinning or unevenness. If you notice any issues or hear unusual noises when braking, have your brakes inspected by a professional mechanic.
