Because a lot of Porsche owners can’t bear to be away from their vehicle for six months, we have also included spring maintenance tips for Porsche vehicles coming out of winter. In fact, we will start there.
Spring maintenance tips for winter-driven Porsche vehicles
If you used your Porsche this winter, spring maintenance will revolve around removing traces left by winter driving conditions and ensure that your vehicle is in perfect condition heading into spring.
Step 1: Service
It is always a good idea to plan a service appointment in spring. We will replace the oil and filter and check the fluid levels across your engine to make sure everything is where it needs to be. We will also inspect the various components of the engine, gearbox, suspension and other critical areas to make sure that winter didn’t damage anything.
Step 2: Wheels and tires
You can plan to have your summer tires installed during your service appointment. We will check the alignment and geometry of the wheels at the same time, and we can also check if your summer tires are still in good condition. We also have a wide selection of summer tires if needed.
Step 3: Detailing
Detailing is the last step to prep your Porsche for spring. It is a critical step, however. Not only can we get rid of the salt and dirt that has accumulated inside your Porsche and make sure your carpets are clean, but we can also get rid of the dirt that lodges under your vehicle. Moreover, we offer a variety of products that can be useful in summer including paint and upholstery protection. Our various summer detailing packages will ensure that your Porsche shines bright in the months ahead.
How to prep your Porsche for summer after storage
If your Porsche was in storage this winter, the steps above also apply. That said, if the car was properly stored in the fall, it should be pretty much ready to go. The two important elements to check are the tires and the battery.
Even if inflated properly before storage, your tire air pressure will likely need to be adjusted in the spring. As for the battery, check for any signs of corrosion before heading out. If you used a battery tender, the battery should be in top shape when you take the cover off.
When you head out on the road for the first time, go easy on the vehicle and check for noises. If you want to make sure everything is still in perfect order, give us a call and schedule an appointment for service and of course, detailing.
