Posted at Tue, Mar 5, 2019 12:30 PM

At Universal Used Car Superstore in sunny Orlando, FL, we don't have to worry about the bitter cold and heavy snow that northern states experience. But that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t use the springtime season as a time to spring clean and service your ride. Here is your complete spring car maintenance checklist.

Change Your Oil and Oil Filter

Replacing your oil and filter routinely keeps your car running at its best. Neglecting to replace the oil can result in poor engine lubrication, higher fuel consumption rates, and even severe engine issues.

Check Your Fluids

When your take your vehicle in for an oil change, our expert technicians will also check and top off your fluids. These include the brake, transmission, and power steering fluids.

Replace Your Wipers

It is recommended that you get your windshield wipers replaced biannually. You never want to be left out in an April shower with poor visibility due to split or cracked wiper blades.

Check Your Lighting

Even though the daylight hours are getting longer, spring is a great time to check al your car’s exterior and interior lighting. If your vehicle’s lighting is defective, other drivers on the road may not see you or know that you’re intending to stop or turn.

Inspect Your Tires

Your car’s tires are the only point of contact between you and the road, so it is essential that they are well-maintained. Be sure to check the pressure of all your tires, including the spare. Additionally, check the tread of each tire for irregular or uneven wear

This spring, ensure your vehicle is running its best with a trip to our used car dealership near Lake Nona, your trusted source for dependable service and used car sales.
