Schedule a visit for springtime car care today at McGrath Volvo Cars Barrington

Well folks, it's been a long and trying winter here in the greater Chicago area, and even though there's showers in the forecast for the next week, we think that most folks around here are just grateful for the opportunity to thaw out. However, before those chilly winter nights become a faint memory washed away by sunny summer weather, you should spare a thought for your Volvo car. Sure, Volvo vehicles are made to endure the coldest Scandinavian winters, but it still pays to give them a quick checkup at the start of spring. And with Spring Volvo service available here at our Barrington, IL Volvo dealership, we can help you ensure that your car is in top shape, no matter how much driving you did this winter.

Chicago area winters are tough on even the hardiest cars, and from the frigid conditions to the ice, snow, and salt on the road, it can be like an endurance test for your vehicle. In particular, there are a few key problem areas that we assess when it comes to springtime Volvo service here at McGrath Volvo Cars Barrington.

  • Tires: Now that the roads aren't icy, you'll probably want to switch back to your all season tires to maximize your Volvo car's efficiency.
  • Windshield Wipers: Salt and debris can wear down the rubber components on your windshield wiper blades, so spring is a good time to get them checked or replaced.
  • Batteries: Extreme temperatures, whether they be cold or warm, can have an effect on your car battery's charge and longevity. With our state-of-the-art Volvo service center near Elgin, we have the tools to test your battery if need be.
  • Wheel Alignment: Springtime always brings new potholes, and they can throw your car's alignment off easily. With our digital alignment system, we can help you keep your Volvo car on the straight and narrow.
  • Oil Changes and Fluid Service: It's easy to forget oil changes and replenishing other fluids during the winter months, so the start of spring is a great time to get your oil and oil filter changed and have one of our certified Volvo service technicians check up on your coolant levels, brake fluid, and more.

Trust us when we say that bringing your Volvo car to us after the long winter is one of the best things you can do to ensure that it's mechanically sound and ready to serve you wherever the road might take you this spring. So, don't hesitate to schedule your next service visit online today and experience the benefits of springtime Volvo service from McGrath Volvo Cars Barrington for yourself.
