HOW TO SUMMERIZE YOUR CAR

August 1st, 2019 by

It’s summertime and that calls for being out and about more on the roads. Are you planning a summer road trip, traveling on the weekends to your summer cabin or spending your evenings out enjoying the hot summer nights?

It’s time to think about your vehicle and the seasonal maintenance it might need. Here are some tips to ensure safe summer driving this August:

1. Beat the Heat. Your cars cooling system is critical to your summer driving so make sure to give it extra care through the season.
2. Air Conditioning. Make sure your air conditioning won’t quit cooling for you this summer, inspect the system for any worn out, damaged belts and that it’s clear of any debris.
3. Summer Tread. Opt for All Weather tires or get some summer tires on your vehicle. You’ll get more speed, better handling and better fuel efficiency with the right tires.
4. Brake Check. Summer weather patterns can bring all sorts of weather. You’ll want to make sure your brakes are in check and ready to go for what summer weather may bring. Hot weather can also cause brake pads to wear more quickly so keep tabs on yours and make sure they are in good shape.

Last but not least we hope you are enjoying this summer season and don’t forget those sunglasses!
