Summer Car Care Tips
Though we’re half way through the summer season, there is still driving to be had and more road trips in our future.
Before you’re packed and ready to hit the road, every driver should check their vehicle’s battery, brakes, fluid, wiper blades, oil and tires. One thing we often like to say… ‘your brakes stop your vehicle’s wheels from spinning, but your tires are what truly stop your vehicle on the road.’ Our technicians will inspect and repair your vehicle quickly while standing behind our service. That’s why we give you the service you deserve, by the professionals you trust.
If you’re ready to get your vehicle up to snuff, here are some of the tips you can consider to keep your car in tip top shape.
Have us take a look at your tires – We would be happy to check the tire tread on your tires. We can quickly let you know if it’s time for new tires. We’ve got a huge selection of tires to choose from at any budget.
Rotate your tires – Making sure that your tire tread wears evenly, it’s important to rotate your tires. This will help extend the life of your tires & investment.
Schedule a vehicle brake check – Like we say, your brakes stop your vehicle’s wheels from spinning. They play a major role in the safety of your vehicle. Just swing on by the shop and we can quickly check them out.
Check your tire air pressure – Air pressure is crucial! You can easily have underinflated or overinflated tires that can make for some dangerous driving. Have us check your tire’s air pressure or consider checking out what your manufacturer’s manual recommends.
Inspect your wiper blades – You never know when a summer rain will strike. Have us take a look at your windshield wipers to make sure they can take a good bit of water!
Check & inspect your vehicle’s battery – Nobody wants to be stuck in a parking lot with a dead battery… especially if you’re out of state or on a road trip. Have us check & inspect your vehicle’s battery before you hit the road.
Schedule an oil change – Oil changes are a requirement when it comes to maintaining your vehicle. Each vehicle suggests different oil change intervals, so just ask us about yours, today!
Change your vehicle’s air filter – Your vehicle’s air filter prevents harmful debris, dirt and contaminants from entering your engine. It’s important that you have your air filter properly inspected to allow for your vehicle to run properly and also keep your A/C working at its best.
