Lincoln, NE -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/22/2019 -- As the go-to provider of collision and auto body services across Lincoln, NE, The Kustom Shop understands that wintertime driving can wreak havoc on a vehicle. Everything from snow and ice to the cold temperatures can cause issues for exterior paint, undercarriages, brakes, fluids, and more. Now, the company is offering tips on how drivers can give their car a spring cleaning and maintenance.

Examining the wheels, tires, and alignment is essential because icy roads and potholes can damage tires and cause the alignment to be off. Not only does can this lead to wear and tear on the treads, but it can also result in the vehicle pulling to one side. This also presents a perfect opportunity to check tire pressure as well.

Ensuring that the brakes are in proper working order is another way to prepare a car for springtime driving and road trips. The brakes should be carefully and thoroughly checked, including the pads and rotors.

Over the winter season, the extreme cold can affect both the quality and quantity of a vehicle's essential fluids. The Kustom Shop recommends consulting the car's maintenance guide to see what fluid should be replaced. Additionally, this can be the ideal time to check the oil and consider a transmission fluid exchange.

Finally, a car wash is an essential component of a spring cleaning maintenance routine. Salt, gravel, and sand aren't just unsightly — they can actually do damage to a vehicle's exterior paint and underbody. While it's best to continue to wash a car throughout the winter to prevent damage from rust, a springtime deep-cleaning should be performed to ensure it's protected from rust and paint issues.
