When you think of spring, chances are you think of spring cleaning. Did you ever wonder if you should be doing any spring cleaning on your car too? Spring is an ideal time to get your car in shape and clear away any nasty after-effects of the harsh winter climate that Boston-area residents know so well. Getting a tune up for your car in advance of the hot summer months can do wonders for the performance and reliability of your vehicle. Here are a few things to keep in mind before you bring your car in for a spring tune-up.


Summer Driving

Whether you’re taking the family on a road trip or just taking advantage of the beautiful weather and extended hours of sunlight, you probably drive more in the spring and summer than you do the rest of the year. Typically, thanks to the array of outdoor activities, nearby travel destinations and kids’ summer vacation schedules, Boston-area motorists are out on the road in full force when the weather is warm. Nothing can put a damper on a fun-filled family vacation or weekend outing like a breakdown on the side of the road! Scheduling your tune-up in the spring can help put your mind at ease and ensure that your car is in peak condition before you hit the road.


Winter Rehab

After the months of frigid temperatures, snow, sleet, and ice, your poor car could use a little TLC. It can be tough on your vehicle’s various components to have to start up and run when it’s freezing cold outside. A tune-up in spring can be just the thing to get your car back in shape after the harsh winter climate, so you can head into spring knowing that you and your family have a vehicle they can rely on for all your summer adventures.
