Spring is coming to Pasco County. That means that the temperatures are going to rise, the rain is going to come, and your vehicle needs to be ready for the road.

Now is a great time to give your care a complete wash and detail. Because the winter is the dry season in South Florida, you could have some dust and debris build up on your vehicle. Over time, that dust and debris can damage your vehicle’s exterior as well as important vehicle components. Rely on a pro service to provide a top wash and detail for your vehicle.
Make sure that your battery is ready for the road. Chances are that you will be doing some extended driving. Therefore, you want to make sure that your battery can provide the proper charge to your vehicle. Also, be sure to inspect the battery for any signs of corrosion on the casing or the terminals.
Springtime is when the rain really returns to the South Florida area. Therefore, you will want to make sure that your vehicle’s wiper blades are up to the task. Check for any bent blades or peeling rubber. If you have old wiper blades, be sure to visit our parts department for replacement OEM wiper blades.
The temperature can hit 90 degrees during the spring in the New Port Richey, Fl area. Make sure that your A/C system is in top shape. Turn on the air and check to see if you are getting a good flow of cool air from each vehicle. Also, now is a good time to change out the cabin air filter.
Since the roads may get wet from spring showers, you will want to make sure that your vehicle’s tires are in good shape. Check the tread level of each tire. Also, make sure that each tire has the right level of pressure.
Getting your car ready for spring is a breeze when you follow the right steps. If you need any assistance with your Volkswagen’s maintenance, then be sure to visit our service center at VW of New Port Richey. Schedule your certified Volkswagen service online!
