Regardless if you’re looking to purchase a brand new 2019 Ford Mustang, or simply have some car-related questions, we are here to serve, and this couldn’t be truer when it comes to Springtime maintenance.

Winter is finally over, which means warmer temperature, and for certain parts of the country, more rain. While the winter can put quite a strain on your vehicle, spring can also come with its share of hazards and wear and tear.

First things first, if you live in an area that salts their roads during the wet winter, you might want to get your car thoroughly detailed. Road salt, while great for keeping traction on the road, isn’t so great for some of your car’s components. Road salt can corrode the metal and cause some serious long-term damages if you’re not careful. By getting your car thoroughly washed you can avoid some of these potentially costly troubles.

With the arrival of rainier weather in California, it is incredibly important that you maintain your vehicle’s tires. Your tires are the foundation of your car; not only do they help you grip the road, but they also support the weight of your vehicle. On top of that, when the rain hits, having a healthy level of tread depth can make the difference between driving safely, and hydroplaning on the road.

Spring car maintenance can seem intimidating at first, but fortunately, you don’t have to go it alone. At Folsom Lake Ford, our Ford parts and service team can inspect your vehicle from head to toe to ensure that your car is ready to tackle the spring season.
