When it comes to spring maintenance, the car battery is a great place to start. Nobody thinks about their battery until it’s too late. Most drivers don’t know they have a problem until their battery is dead. In fact,1 in 4 cars will need a new battery this year. Do yourself a favor and take your car in for a battery test before you find yourself stranded. 

If you do need a new battery, it’s important to make sure you get the best. Interstate Batteries is the battery auto techs prefer the most and it offers nationwide warranties that will have you covered coast to coast.

Car care can be expensive, but eBay Motors helps shoppers find some of the best deals. On eBay, three parts or accessories are sold every second. With eBay, shoppers can find new, used and hard to find auto parts directly from dealers, OEMs or local auto shops. With the mobile app, shoppers can easily browse eBay’s vast selection; and, with eBay’s fitment technology, it further helps to refine results and only surfaces the parts compatible with YOUR car, ensuring you’ll get the right part needed. The delivery is often free – in fact 67% of items on eBay ship for free - and the prices are always right. It’s an invaluable resource for drivers and auto technicians.

Sometimes, it’s the little things that make our lives easier. When it comes to car maintenance, WD-40 Multi Use Product should be a staple of every spring check up. Use it to lubricate moving parts like door and wiper hinges, or use it to remove grease and grime from the undercarriage and engine.

WD-40 EZ REACH will make your life easier! It has an 8-inch, flexible straw that helps you get in to those hard-to-reach places.

Maximizing performance and fuel economy is vital for any highly functioning vehicle.
