Car Care Tips from AutoNation

Keeping drivers safe and cars running smoothly

Car Care Essentials

As we leave winter weather in the rearview mirror and before heading out on spring and summer road trips, you’ll want to check the box on the following car care essentials:

  • Check your tires

    Check your tire pressure monthly and make sure to have your tires rotated and balanced every 6,000 miles.

  • Check your oil filters and fluids

    Windshield washer fluids, air conditioning coolant and oil levels should be at appropriate levels before you embark on your road trip.

  • Check your brakes

    Worn brakes put additional strain on your transmission and tires, so get them checked, especially if you are planning to travel in mountainous terrain.

  • Check your wipers

    On average, your car will need routine maintenance every 5,000 miles. To ensure the best performance, replace your wipers every six months as well as check your manufacturer guidelines for your vehicle's overall maintenance schedule.

Keep your vehicle road trip ready!
