The weather in West Virginia can be quite unpredictable, so it’s important for your vehicle to always be prepared for different weather conditions. With each season change, your vehicle deals with changing temperatures and other weather hazards, which is why your vehicle requires specific maintenance and repairs at different parts of the year.
After the long, harsh months of winter, spring offers a nice break from the freezing temperatures and snow. However, there’s also quite a bit of rain in the spring, so you need to make sure your windshield wipers are working properly. Spring is also a great time for an oil change and tire rotation after having driven through snow and slush in the winter.
Summer can lead to some scorching temperatures, so properly running air conditioning is a must. With summer thunderstorms, you also need to have working windshield wipers. You should also be sure all of the fluids in your vehicle are at their optimal levels.
Falling leaves can quickly make roads slippery, so check that your tire tread is deep enough. You may also want to consider getting an oil change before winter arrives and taking the time to ensure your heating system is working properly.
Winter can bring heavy snowfall and ice, which can both be dangerous for driving. For more stability on the road, you might want to consider investing in a good pair of winter tires. Also, be sure to inspect your battery prior to the first snowfall since you don’t want to be left stranded on the road during a snowstorm.
