As you may already know, there are lots of ways in which your car, truck, or SUV can experience some potentially damaging wear-and-tear throughout the ‘dog days’. That mechanical damage can be prevented, however, by taking a few steps toward ‘summer-proofing’ your car.


The Benefits of Summer-Proofing Your Car

You’ve meticulously planned and mapped out your course for an outstanding summer road trip with your family and friends. But few things can destroy your road trip plans faster than a broken-down car, truck, or SUV. And your plans aren’t the only potential casualties if you choose to disregard the advantages of summer-proofing your vehicle.

Summer Vehicle Maintenance Checklist

Vehicle Maintenance Will Save You Money

Putting off regularly scheduled vehicle service is a mistake almost everyone makes. In our rush to get on the road, we do not take the time to ensure our car, truck, or SUV is in tip-top shape. Before you know it, your radiator needs replacing or your engine has overheated in the summer heat. Which do you think is more expensive? A gallon of coolant or a brand-new engine?


Extend the Lifetime of Your Car

Keeping your vehicle in tip-top shape isn’t just to make sure you get a cheaper, hassle-free vacation. In the long run, keeping your car, truck, or SUV maintained extends its life for much longer than a minimally maintained one.


Road Safety

No one 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 family and friends reach ‘Point B’ safe and sound. So, before you head out on vacation, take a look at this brief summer car maintenance checklist:

Air Conditioner

  • When you run your A/C, pay attention to any strange odors, unusual sounds, or minimal or no cooling. If any or all of these problems pop up, you’ll need to get your A/C system checked out.

Coolant

  • Check your radiator or overflow tank levels to make sure your engine is being effectively cooled. Using a coolant tester can confirm your water/coolant mix is good.

Engine Fluids

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

The Three ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

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

  • Battery

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

  • Blades

    Make sure your windshield wiper blades are in great condition and not bouncing across your dry windshield or leaving a trail of water on a wet one.
