Summer Vehicle Maintenance Benefits

When it comes to summer vehicle service tips, Gene Messer Kia is here to help. As you may already know, there are plenty of ways your car can suffer some potentially harmful wear-and-tear during these ‘dog days’. That mechanical damage can be prevented, however, by taking a few steps toward keeping your car ‘summer-proof’.

The Benefits of Summer-Proofing Your Car

You’ve meticulously planned and mapped out your course for an awesome summer vacation with your family and friends. But nothing can spoil your holiday plans faster than a broken-down car, truck, or SUV. And your vacation plans aren’t the only potential casualties if you choose to neglect the benefits of summer-proofing your car.

Vehicle Maintenance Saves You Money

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

Extend the Lifetime of Your Vehicle

Keeping your car in tip-top shape isn’t simply to ensure you get a less costly, hassle-free road trip. In the long run, keeping your car, truck, or SUV maintained extends its life for far longer than a minimally maintained one.

Safety On The Road

Nobody wants to be broken down on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your vehicle maintained can ensure you and your friends and family reach your destination safe and sound. So, before you hit the road, take a look at this brief car summer-proofing checklist:

Air Conditioning

  • When you turn on your A/C, pay attention to any weird odors, unusual noises, or a lack of cooling. If any or all of these issues pop up, you’ll probably need to get your A/C system checked out.

Engine Coolant

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

Automotive Fluids

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

The 3 ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

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

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the potency of your battery to make sure your car starts up every time you need it to.

  • Blades

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