After battling ice, snow, and sleet, your Hyundai deserves some TLC to prep for spring. Aside from giving your Hyundai a thorough cleaning to remove grit, grime, and salt, here are some other tasks you may want to leave to the professionals at Advantage Hyundai.
Even if your vehicle hasn’t reached the recommended mileage since your last oil change, cold weather makes oil more viscous, which makes sludge buildup more likely. In addition, cracks and leaks can develop. Our mechanics can also determine if you need a different oil for the warmer months.
Sheets of ice are hard on wiper blades, and sand, salt and snow particles can become trapped between the wipers and windshield, causing smears. If cleaning the wipers doesn’t help, we can replace them at our dealership.
Tire Pressure Inspection
Any time the temperature drops 10 degrees, your tire pressure decreases. This means that without a pressure monitoring system, you could be driving with under-inflated tires. Tires also take a beating from frost heaves and potholes, and we can inspect your tires thoroughly to keep you safe on the road. In addition, if you have winter tires on your Hyundai, we can switch them out with regular tires.
Exterior blemishes are inevitable over time, and wet weather and salt can enlarge small scratches and cause them to rust. If you’re unsure how to repair these blemishes, our mechanics can clean up the surface.
You can easily wash and wax your Hyundai yourself but in order to completely remove salt and debris from the undercarriage, you’ll need professionals to ensure the job is done right to prevent future damage.
It’s important to have your Hyundai assessed in the spring since all the effects of winter may not be apparent to you. We look forward to getting your Hyundai in tip-top shape for the warmer months. You can schedule an appointment at our dealership at 440 Plainview Road in Hicksville by calling 877-557-6142.
