The winter months are finally behind us. Now is the perfect time to come to Fitzgerald Hyundai in Rockville for your Hyundai's spring car care needs. Whether your vehicle is an Accent, Sonata, Kona, or Palisade, the service professionals have the knowledge and experience to get your vehicle in shape for the warmer months ahead. Here are a few maintenance items to consider this spring.

  • Oil Change: The most basic car maintenance item is also the most critical. Oil lubricates fast-moving metal parts, keeps the engine at a safe temperature, and carries contaminants to the filter. Winter months can cause more particulates to build up, which can affect the oil's performance. Get a fresh start this April with some fresh oil.

  • Check Your Tires: Ensure that tire pressure is at the recommended level and that the tread is deep enough. Having tires rotated with every oil change is a great way to help them wear evenly.

  • Replace Wiper Blades: Cold temps can cause wiper blades to become brittle. To ensure optimum summer performance, change them out in the spring.

  • Test the Battery: Colder temps cause batteries to work harder. Furthermore, the change to warm temps can hasten corrosion and fluid evaporation. The spring is a great time to test your Hyundai's battery and replace it if necessary.

  • Brake Service: The extra winter road grit can cause pads and rotors to wear faster. Before summer rolls around, have them checked to be sure they're both at safe levels.
