TORONTO – Spring weather might be hard to find in Ontario this year but even though it’s cold outside it’s time to start thinking about giving your car or truck a spring tune-up.

“More than 90 per cent of your driving decisions are based on what you see, so visibility is critical, ” says Bill Gardiner, mechanic and spokesperson for Kal Tire.

Gardiner says windshield wiper blades are among the most important safety items worth replacing in spring time but they’re often overlooked by drivers.

“If it bought you even a second of reaction time that could make a big difference in an emergency,” Gardiner says.

Gardiner says drivers should consider other preventative maintenance in spring time, including: checking alignment and vehicle suspension, tires, brakes, filter and fluids.
