When it comes to car service suggestions for summer, Finnegan Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram is here to help. As you may already know, there are plenty of ways your car can suffer some potentially destructive wear-and-tear throughout the ‘dog days’. That damage can be prevented, however, by taking a few steps toward ‘summer-proofing’ your car, truck, or SUV.

Summer-Proofing Your Car: Advantages

You have made your plans and charted your course for an awesome summer road trip with your friends and family. But nothing can spoil your road trip plans faster than a broken-down vehicle. And your plans aren’t the only potential casualties if you decide to neglect the benefits of summer-proofing your vehicle.

Regular Car Maintenance Saves You Cash

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 make certain our vehicle is ready for the road. The next thing you know, 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 brand-new engine?

Extend the Lifetime of Your Vehicle

Keeping your car, truck, or SUV maintained isn’t simply to make sure you get a more affordable, problem-free road trip. Over time, keeping your vehicle maintained extends its life for much longer than a minimally maintained one.

Safety On The Road

Nobody intends to be broken down on the side of the highway in the middle of nowhere, or worse. Preventative maintenance can make certain you and your family and friends reach ‘Point B’ safely. So, before you hit the road, take a few minutes to look at this brief summer vehicle maintenance checklist:

Air Conditioner

  • When you run your A/C, pay attention to any weird smells, unusual noises, or a lack of cold air. If any or all of these problems turn up, you’ll probably need to get your A/C system examined.

Engine Coolant

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

Engine Fluids

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

The 3 ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

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

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the potency 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 condition and not jumping across your dry windshield or leaving a trail of water on a wet one.
