How to Get Your Car Ready for Spring

car ready for spring

Getting your car ready for spring is hugely beneficial. It increases the car’s longevity and brings down the likelihood of an accident or breakdown during the hot summer months. Help your car recover from winter and transition into summer with these easy tips.

First, check your fluids and top off any that are low. If it’s been more than a couple of months since your last oil change, now is a great time to get one again, and you should also have the coolant checked to see if you might need a coolant flush. Having clean fluids is one of the best ways to keep your car healthy during spring and summer.

Now is a great time to check your tires and brakes, too. If your tires are worn or have any damage, you may want to have them replaced, and you should check the tire pressure and add air if it’s low. Get the tires rotated, balanced, and aligned. Have your brakes inspected by a professional for rust, worn pads, leaks in the lines, and more.

Finally, you should switch out your windshield wipers for new ones, especially if they’re squealing or leaving streaks, and give your car a thorough wash. Pay special attention to the undercarriage to get off any built-up grime.

Rumored Buick Regal GS Could Mean a Fun Sports Sedan

Buick Regal GS

Since the 2018 Buick Regal debuted last month, starting its sixth generation, rumors have been floating around about a potential Regal GS, or Gran Sport.

The GS name has been around for decades to indicate Buick’s performance vehicles, and the Buick Regal GS could include a 3.6-liter V6 engine, like the one in the LaCrosse that produces 310 hp, a step up from the Regal’s current turbocharged 4-cylinder. There are also rumors that the Regal GS could come with the Camaro’s 335-horsepower V6.

The news about the Regal GS first came out in April, when The Truth About Cars saw a blurb advertising the Regal GS with the V6 engine on the Buick Canada website. It has since been taken down, but it follows previous statements from TTAC reporting that a Regal with a V6 was on its way all the way back in 2016.

The Regal GS would also probably be paired with Buick’s new twin-clutch all-wheel drive system, which offers unique torque and vectoring capabilities that will further boost the performance and make for an even more exciting drive. No details have yet been released for the possible Regal GS, but you can find out about the 2018 Regal today at Warsaw Buick GMC!
