1. Change fluids.

The Michigan winter makes engines work much harder than in other parts of the country with milder weather. This extra work depletes fluids at a much faster rate, making spring the perfect time for us to change your oil and other fluids.

2. Replace windshield wipers.

With all of the scraping back and forth of snow and ice, our state’s winter weather also takes a toll on your windshield wipers. We can replace them during your oil change and check that they operate correctly.

3. Rotate tires.

Regular tire rotation extends the life of your tires. Spring offers the perfect opportunity to do exactly that. If you use winter tires, we can swap those out for your regular tires as well.

4. Check brakes.

Think about the extra braking you do navigating Michigan roads in the winter. We can check your brake system and recommend any repairs or replacements necessary.

5. Detail inside and out.
