Get Your Lincoln Model Ready for the Warmer Seasons with These 6 Spring Car Care Tips

It's officially spring, folks, and that means it's time for a little spring cleaning! Ensuring your vehicle is in good condition is important to not only its appearance and performance, but to its safety as well, and we here at Columbia Ford Lincoln want to help you out as much as we can. So, to get you started, we have a list of 6 easy spring car care tips that will make your driving transition into the warmer months much smoother.



  1. Wash and wax your vehicle! Salt, dirt, and other debris from the winter can do a real number on your vehicle, so get it all cleaned off to prevent paint damage or rust.
  2. Similarly, clean out your cabin. After a full season of dirt and salt, various items, and assorted trash being thrown around, your Lincoln model will feel like a new ride once you've gotten the seats and foot wells all cleared out.
  3. Check your tire pressure. Warm air expands and, if your tires were properly pressurize for the cold winter air, they're certainly in need of a check now.
  4. Check belts and pipes under the hood. If the cold weather has left any of them cracked or looking brittle, it's time for some maintenance or repairs.
  5. Replace your windshield wiper blades. Snow and ice can really mess up your wipers' soft rubber, so avoid streaks by getting a new set if needed.
  6. Have your alignment and suspension checked. Bad winter road conditions can do all sorts of things to your vehicle, so ensuring your wheels are aligned and your suspension is in good condition will prevent a mountain of headaches down the road.
