Understanding what your car needs, when it needs it can make all the difference in the longevity of your vehicle’s life. Continuing with our list of auto care service tips, we have two more important things you should be doing for your car.
- Keep Your Car Clean
This may seem like a no-brainer, but washing your car regularly can help prevent dirt, grime, and whatever else you may have ran over from building up on the underside of your car and around your tires. Salt from the winter can damage the exterior of your car, so it’s always a good idea to hose all of that off when the seasons change.
- Check Your Wheel Bearings
Be sure to check your wheel bearings and inspect, clean, and repack them with wheel bearing grease at the appropriate intervals. These parts are relatively inexpensive compared to the hub and spindle replacements you could be facing with improper maintenance. Keeping on top of your wheel bearings can also prevent wheels coming lose and rolling down the road away from your car. Any Meineke car care center can take care of this for you if you do not feel comfortable messing with the bearings yourself.
