Moving from Winter to Summer

If you took proper care of your car during the winter, you’re probably going to need to de-winterize your vehicle as we leave the cold months behind. Consider the following tips from our auto body shop in Seattle:

  • Lose the Snow Tires: These tires are heavier than is needed in the summer, and will reduce your fuel economy.
  • Check Your Fluid Levels: If you stored your car during the winter, you’ll need to check on your coolant, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, differential fluid, and brake fluid.
  • Clean Your Undercarriage: Particularly if you live in a snowy climate, your car may have accumulated salty residues that can quickly corrode the metals.
