Putting your car, truck or utility vehicle through winter is unavoidable, but that doesn’t make it any less taxing on said automobile. That’s why, as soon as you’re through to the other side, it’s important to take care of the things that might have been affected by the harsh seasonal weather. One of the most important things to check after winter is whether or not you need a windshield wiper replacement, but there are plenty of other spring services to consider, and they’re all available right here at Godwin Motors in Columbia SC.

It’s most likely time for your next oil change, for starters, but you might also need to check things like alignment, tire pressure, tire tread, fluid levels and other things that can be affected by the harsh weather. If you’ve been driving through a lot of icy and snowy conditions throughout the winter, then it’s also important to get your car washed as soon as possible. Hopefully, you got a few washes through the winter as well, but now that all of the ice, snow and salt that comes with those types of road conditions is gone, you want to make sure to clean it all off of your vehicle to avoid permanent damage.
