Summer Car Maintenance Benefits

When it comes to car service tips for summer, South Pointe Honda is on-hand to help. As you may already know, there are a lot of ways your car, truck, or SUV can suffer some potentially harmful wear-and-tear during the ‘dog days’. That mechanical damage can be avoided, however, by taking these simple steps toward keeping your car ‘summer-proof’.

Summer-Proofing Your Vehicle: Benefits

You have made your plans and charted your course for a remarkable summer vacation with your family and friends. But nothing can ruin your road trip plans faster than a broken-down car. And your plans aren’t the only potential casualties if you decide to disregard the advantages of summer-proofing your car, truck, or SUV.

Car Service Saves You Cash

Putting off regular car maintenance is an error all of us have made. In our excitement to get started on the road, we do not take the time to make certain our vehicle is in tip-top shape. Before you know it, your radiator has sprung a leak or your engine has burned up in the summer heat. Which do you think will cost you more? A gallon of coolant or a new engine?

Increase the Life of Your Car

Keeping your vehicle in tip-top shape isn’t simply to make certain you get a less costly, problem-free road trip. In the long run, keeping your car maintained extends its life for much longer than a minimally maintained one.

Safety On The Road

No one wants to be stranded on the side of the highway in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your car in tip-top shape can make sure you and your friends and family reach ‘Point B’ safely. So, before you head out on vacation, take a look at this short summer vehicle maintenance checklist:

Air Conditioner

  • When you run your A/C, check for strange odors, odd sounds, or minimal or no cooling. If any or all of these problems appear, you’ll most likely need to get your A/C system looked at.

Engine Coolant

  • Check your radiator or overflow tank levels to see if your engine is being appropriately cooled. Using a coolant tester can verify your water/coolant mixture is good.

Automotive Fluids

  • Check your transmission fluid, brake fluid, and oil to make sure your car, truck, or SUV’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 noticeable indicators of wear-and-tear.

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the strength of your battery to ensure your car, truck, or SUV starts each time you need it to.

  • Blades

    Make sure your windshield wiper blades are in great shape and not jumping across your dry windshield or leaving a mess on a wet one.
