Those living in America’s Snowbelt have been patiently waiting for the spring thaw, and soon the countdown to driving season will be over. With the worst of the winter weather over, gearheads are awaiting a few good rainstorms to wash the salt away before spinning that starter and enjoying the first drive of the 2019 season. But before taking to the road, inspect your car to be sure it is ready.
If you’ve stored your vehicle properly, spring can be a joyful time. Turning the key and driving out of the garage to find your favorite road is a glorious escape from months of darkness and cold. If your car was stored improperly, you’ll need to run through a much longer checklist before you can make sure your ride is indeed ready for action.
What do you do to get your car ready for driving season? Whether you do a thorough once-over or just pull the cover off, it’s the time of year to start thinking about getting back behind the wheel.
