They say that April showers bring May flowers, but springtime here in the greater Corvallis, OR area also brings with it a veritable laundry list of vehicle maintenance tasks that you should take care of before planning any future road trips. Luckily, as a certified Ford service center serving drivers from Eugene to Albany, OR, we're in a great position to not only clue you in to the maintenance issues you might have to watch out for, but also help you take care of all your spring car care needs right here at our Corvallis, OR dealership.

Get yourself an oil change!

If you're like a lot of folks from Salem to Lebanon, OR these days, chances are that getting an oil change hasn't even crossed your mind in the past few months. But with the weather warming up, you're going to want to spend a bit more time traveling and enjoying the outdoors in the near future, so it's important to ensure your car is ready for those extra miles. Getting an oil change at our Corvallis, OR certified Ford service center is one of the best things you can do to ensure that, because fresh oil and a clean oil filter help your engine run more efficiently and prevent contaminants from building up in its combustion system.

Get a car wash!

A little dirt never hurt anyone, right? Well, that's not always the case with your car. Grit, grime, and road salt can build up on your car and do some serious damage to its paint job if left unchecked, not to mention the rust and corrosion of components under your car in the long term. Plus, it's a good idea to do some spring cleaning on your car's interior if you want to avoid unpleasant odors. Go for a full detailing if you really want to get all the little nooks and crannies in your Ford cleaned, and spring for an upholstery treatment if you've got leather seats so you can avoid sun-bleaching and cracking.

Swap out your windshield wipers!

We all know how rainy the weather can get around the Pacific Northwest, especially around in the spring. And though you may not know it, windshield wipers can wear down and lose their flexibility over time, resulting in streaky, uneven passes over your windshield. During the spring, it's a good idea to wipe down your windshield wipers with a microfiber cloth at least once a week to check their flexibility and make sure there's no cracks or tears in the rubber. If there are, you can always swing by our Ford service center to get a fresh set!
