Summer-Proofing Your Car: Benefits

You’ve meticulously planned and mapped out your course for an amazing summer vacation with your family and friends.

Car Service Will Save You Money

Putting off car maintenance is a mistake all of us have made. In our excitement to get started on the road, we do not take the time to ensure our vehicle is ready to roll. The next thing you know, your radiator has sprung a leak or your engine has overheated in the summer heat. Which do you think will cost you more? A gallon of coolant or a new engine?

Improve the Life of Your Vehicle

Keeping your car in good condition isn’t just to make certain you get a less costly, hassle-free road trip. In the long run, keeping your vehicle maintained ensures its longevity for much longer than a minimally maintained one.

Safety On The Road

No one wants to be broken down on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your car in tip-top shape can make sure you and your friends and family get to ‘Point B’ safely. So, before you hit the road, take a few minutes to look at this short summer vehicle maintenance checklist:

Air Conditioning

  • When you turn on your A/C, pay attention to any strange smells, unusual sounds, or minimal or no cold air. If any or all of these problems turn up, you’ll most likely need to get your A/C system examined.


  • Check your radiator or overflow tank levels to ensure your engine is being properly cooled. Using a coolant tester can verify your water/coolant mixture is where it should be.

Automotive Fluids

  • Check your brake fluid, transmission fluid, and oil to ensure your car’s moving parts are effectively lubricated at all times.

The Three ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

    Remove your tires one-at-a-time and inspect your brake pads and/or shoes for any visible indicators of wear-and-tear.

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the strength of your battery to ensure your car starts every time you need it to.

  • Blades

    Ensure your windshield wiper blades are in excellent shape and not jumping across your dry windshield or leaving a trail of water on a wet one.
