March Break: Get a Tune-Up Before Your Spring Break Road Trip

Minit-Tune & Brake| Tuesday, March 01, 2016

After a tough winter season, your car is probably in need of a little TLC. Harsh weather conditions, salt, and limited traction can do quite a number on your vehicle. For that reason, spring is the perfect time to schedule your regular vehicle maintenance appointment.

4 Reasons to Schedule Your Auto Repair Appointment Before Spring Break

The birds are singing, the snow is melting, and the kids get a week off school! It is an exciting time of year and it’s also a great time to get your vehicle tuned up. Here are a few reasons March Break is the perfect opportunity to schedule your auto maintenance appointment:

  1. You’re Already Coming In – Budding trees means you no longer need those heavy winter tires on your vehicle. Why not combine appointments and get a thorough vehicle service inspection completed when you get your regular tires put on? Bring your vehicle to the Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centres location that is closest to you for your tire change and a quick inspection.
  2. Precious Cargo is On Board – School break means more time with the kids and more time with them in the car. Make sure your vehicle is running smoothly and don’t get stuck on the roadside or in a fender bender with your little ones in tow. You don’t need the headache, or the stress, caused by a vehicle that needs a tune-up. Book a vehicle maintenance appointment before the kids are off so you can have peace of mind as you are driving them around.
  3. Winter is Harsh – The cold weather and salt don’t just do damage to the body of your vehicle. Tough road conditions can have an impact on your wheel alignment too. Plus, months of cranked heating can cause wear on your heating and cooling systems. Other mechanical and electrical components in your vehicle can also take a beating from the cold nights, so get a full inspection completed by a trained mechanic.
  4. Road Trip Season – Spring weather means green grass and the beginning of outdoor activities. If you are opting for a spring road trip rather than a winter sun vacation, you’ll want to hit the road knowing your vehicle has had all the necessary repairs, fluid refills and other top ups completed.
