Winter was extremely tough in Rochester, NY this year and that means that your tires, wiper blades and interior have also had a rough time. Well, the Service Departments at Hoselton Auto Mall are here for you!
Here is a list of things that you should tune up, clean up or replace to get your vehicle ready for our wonderful Rochester Spring and Summer weather! Our knowledgeable and friendly service and parts advisors can assist you with any of these services as well as answer any other questions that you may have.
Wiper Blades: Check your wiper blades for signs of wear and cracks. If they are leaving water or streaks, then it's time for a new pair. This is a great time of year to replace them!
Air Filters: What is one of the best parts of this time of year? Breathing in the fresh Spring and Summer air! You don't want to miss out with old, dirty air filters in your vehicle. This is a quick job that can be done in any of our Express Service lanes or you can do-it-yourself and purchase filters from any of our Parts Departments.
Tires: If you have snow tires on your vehicle, it's time to switch them out. Snow tires generally don't perform their best on dry or hot payment. Additionally, you don't want the added miles and wear on them if they are not needed.
If you did not switch out your tires this winter for snow tires, this is a great time of year to check for wear and appropriate tread. Make sure you rotate your tires as recommended by your service advisor. Even wear on your tires will extend their lifespan.
Making sure that your tire pressure is at the correct levels will also extend the life of your tires. Under-inflated tires will lower your fuel efficiency, reduced tread life and could even lead to tire failure.
Air Conditioning System: Make sure you test your conditioning system to ensure that it is working well. You don't want to be stuck in a 90 degree weather with a broken system! If you have any concerns about the effectiveness of your system our knowledgeable service advisors are here to answer any questions!
Interior: It's time for some Spring cleaning! Remove all the extra items in your car that you may not have taken out because of the cold weather. Extra, unneeded weight in your vehicle will lower the fuel efficiency. Shake out your floor mats and give them a good vacuum or wash (if you have all-weather mats).
Exterior: Take the time to make sure all of the winter salt is off your vehicle. A good thorough car wash will take car of this. This is also a great time to add a coat of wax. This will give your paint an extra layer of protection. If you don't have the time or materials to do so yourself, the service professionals at Hoselton have a variety of detail options for your vehicle.
