Keep Your Car Running with These Spring Car Care Tips

Spring Car Care Tips

As the winter weather begins to wind down, we’re finally able to start looking forward to spring. To get us ready for the warmer weather — and to keep your vehicle running as smoothly as possible — we thought we’d share some spring car care tips.

Give your car a spring cleaning

Deep cleans don’t only have to occur in your home – you should also clean your car inside and out when the weather gets warmer. Give it a good exterior wash and wax, then follow that up by tidying your cabin. Throw out any trash that you might have collected in the winter and vacuum to pick up any salt or dirt that found its way into your vehicle.

Check your tires

Warmer weather means that your tire pressure can fluctuate, increasing after the cold winter – especially if you filled your tires during the winter to compensate for lower pressure readings. As the roads get slicker, too, it’s important to make sure your tires are wearing properly and get them rotated if you haven’t recently.

Change your wiper blades

Spring showers mean your windshield wipers need to be in good working order. Make sure your wipers don’t have any cracks or wear and, if they do, go ahead and replace them with new ones.

If your car needs further care, or if you’d rather just let someone else take care of it, don’t hesitate to schedule a service appointment at Sunny King Honda. We’ll make sure your car is ready for the warmer weather!

Bring on Spring 5k Run & Y Healthy Kids Day!

Bring on Spring 5k Run | Sunny King Honda | Anniston, AL

Springtime is a popular time for community races, which means it’s a great time to implement any New Year’s resolutions that have to do with getting fit. For neighbors of Sunny King Honda, the upcoming Bring on Spring 5k Run is an excellent opportunity for both exercise and community involvement.

The Bring on Spring 5k Run is being presented by Anniston Orthopaedics. The race will take place in downtown Anniston, Alabama on Saturday, April 28th. All participants will meet at Anniston YMCA for the 5K race, which will begin at 8am If you decide last-minute that you’d like to participate, or forget to register beforehand, the event does allow for race-day registration. Simply show up early, between 7am and 7:45am, to sign up before the race begins.

However, signing up before Saturday, April 11th will save you money with the early bird registration, which costs $20. After April 11th, registration will cost $25, or $23 for members of the Anniston Runners Club.

Once the race has finished, families are encouraged to stick around for the Y Healthy Kids Day®, a national event by the YMCA designed to encourage healthy living and lifestyle choices in kids.

Once you are finished running, though, if you are in need of a new vehicle, then head on down to Sunny King Honda, and we will help you find one to fit your active lifestyle.
