Used cars require seasonal maintenance!

Used Cars in NCPurchasing a used car is a great investment – we want to make sure that it stays that way! To beat the winter blues, take these maintenance steps to keep your used car in Charlotte driving great!

  • Check your windshield wipers.

After a wet winter season, you want to make sure your wipers are still working properly. Winter weather can be tough on the exterior of your car, so be sure everything is clean and rust free. After the last of the wet weather, it’s a good idea to wash your car too!

  • Check your belts.

Cold weather can cause belts to crack or weaken. If you aren’t sure how to check the belts on your Charlotte used car, visit us! Our Toyota Service Center in Charlotte will be able to help you find any cracks underneath the hood.

Always check underneath your hood after the seasons change!

  • Check fluid levels.

Again, the weather can affect things like windshield wiper fluid or water in your radiator. Be sure everything is at the level it needs to be. You don’t want your car overheating or not being able to get the pollen off of your windshield.

  • Check your tires.

When the weather changes, the pressure in your tires can too. You want to stay safe out on the road in your used car in Charlotte. Have a professional rotate your tires and make sure they are evenly balanced. Our Toyota certified technicians will happy to do this for you!

  • Double check the exterior for signs of rust.

If there has been a lot of snow on the ground, many cities use salt to melt it. This can get underneath your car and cause all sorts of cosmetic problems. A nice detailing service or just a hand wash will do the trick to get rid of any salt sitting on your paint. Mud is also not very nice to your paint job – don’t let it sit longer than it needs too!

Are you unsure about when your used car needs check-up? When seasons change, it’s a good idea to get a professional to take a look under the hood. Regular oil changes are always a must, but these types of repairs can be done seasonally. Schedule your spring maintenance with us at our Toyota Service Center in Charlotte!
