Spring Maintenance at BMW of Bridgewater

At BMW of Bridgewater, our service technicians are ready to help you get all your spring maintenance tasks done and get your vehicle in great shape for the warmer weather.  Now is a great time to catch up on all the vehicle maintenance you may have put off during the freezing temperatures and take care of any winter grime along with any wear and tear.

Professional Wash and Detail

The first thing you might want to do is wash off the salt and crud from messy winter roads around Bridgewater.  Go beyond just a quick wash and make sure the undercarriage is thoroughly cleared of salt.  Road salt is extremely corrosive and can lead to serious damage if not rinsed off completely.  Ask our service specialists about adding a protective coating if you didn't have this done when you first purchased your vehicle.  This added layer protection will keep the underside of your car from rusting and causing major damage.  We also provide professional detailing to get the inside looking good as new and cleaning your carpets and mats from any build-up that accumulated over the winter.

Battery Service

Spring and Fall are the best times to get battery service done on your vehicle.  Batteries last three to five years, depending on the brand, so if it's time to change the battery, you want to do it during the seasons when the weather is mild.  Extreme temperatures can deplete your battery much faster, so you want to make sure you go into the new season with a fresh battery if you know you are coming to the end of your car battery's life.

Oil Change and Fluid Checks

Due to the extreme temperatures during the winter, your fluid levels may be lower than normal, and the extreme conditions are hard on your vehicle.  Spring is a great time to check your oil and change it if needed while also topping off all your fluids.

Tires, Alignment, and Suspension

Tires are in contact with the winter roads the most and take the brunt of the harsh conditions.  As the snow melts and heavy rains begin, you may encounter more potholes and damaged roads which can lead to excessive wear and tear on your tires.  Driving in such harsh conditions can also throw your wheels out of alignment and cause wear to your suspension. Our technicians can check your tires for wear and ensure proper alignment and suspension.

Brake Service

Your brakes are one of the most important safety components in your vehicle.  Our technicians will check the pads and rotors for wear and tear and recommend replacement if needed.  If your brake pads or rotors need to be replaced, it's important that you get service done right away to avoid more costly repairs down the road and accidents.

Inspect Rubber Components

Rubber does not perform well in extremely cold conditions and tends to wear or crack faster in the winter.  Our technicians will check all your seals, hoses, and any other rubber components under the hood to ensure everything is in good working order.

Check Wiper Blades

Wiper Blades go through a lot of wear and tear over the winter dealing with mixed snow and ice.  Spring is a great time to check your wiper blades and have them replaced if needed.

Multipoint Inspections

Our technicians will perform a complimentary multipoint inspection to ensure all your vehicle components are working as they should.  This is a great way to cover all your bases and do a comprehensive check of your vehicle after the beating it takes in the winter.  A multipoint inspection will alert you to any maintenance you may need to take care of right away or help you plan for upcoming maintenance or repairs.

Q: Will I damage my car if I keep driving with the check engine light on?

A:  Most times, if your check engine light comes on, you can make it safely to your destination.  However, you should schedule an appointment right away so our technicians can run diagnostics.  They can find and fix the problem, so you avoid any further damage.

Q: When should I get new tires?

A:  Tires last tens of thousands of miles, depending on the brand.  One way to know when you need new tires is to check the tread.  If you stick a penny in several locations in the tread, you know you need new tires if you can see Lincoln's head.

Q: How do I know if I need to change my car battery?

A:  Car batteries typically last three to five years.  Some clues that you might need a new battery are flickering lights or trouble starting your vehicle.
