Spring Has Sprung!

According to Punxsutawney Phil, Spring is on the way. As we’re coming out of the winter months and getting back out onto the roads, here are some car maintenance tips to make sure you’re prepared.





As we transition into the spring months, your winter tires should be heading back into storage. Make sure to replace them with an all-season tire, and while you’re at it, check the treads too.


The easiest way to check tire treads is to insert a penny into your tire’s tread groove with the Lincoln’s head upside down and facing you. If you can see all of Lincoln’s head, your tread depth is less than the recommended amount and it’s time to replace those tires!


Once your tires are safe and ready for the roads, give your car a quick spin to check the alignment and to ensure that you’re driving straight.





If you live in a snowy climate, you’d be surprised at the buildup in the undercarriage of your car from salt and snow debris. Prolonged salt exposure can lead to rust, which can lessen the life of your car. Give your car a good wash to make sure that it’s in optimal condition. And while you’re at it, give the inside a good scrub too!





Throughout those winter months, you’ve probably been running your windshield wipers a lot more than usual. Be sure to double-check your wiper fluid. And check those windshield blades too. They may have taken a beating during the snow and slush. Now is a great time to replace your wipers for a fresh start.





And of course, we can’t forget about your car insurance! Making sure that you’re insured as you’re out on the road is a very important step. Or maybe you already have insurance, but you’re looking to do some shopping around. Look no further, as we here at Embark MGA are more than happy to connect you with an agent to whip up a quote to make sure you’re getting the most of your insurance needs.
