We can’t believe how fast the year is going. Spring is almost coming to a close, as the grass is green, the flowers have bloomed, and the sky seems to be a permanent shade of brilliant blue. The temperatures are going to continue to rise, and the sun continues to shine, as spring turns into summer.
And summer means school is out, and most of us are already planning our summer vacations and road trips. Before you embark on your adventure, make sure your vehicle is ready to go. Get your car ready for summer vacation with these 10 tips:
Don’t forget your tires. Your tires are one of the most critical components of your vehicle that if damaged or worn can jeopardize your safety. Bring your car to Gary’s Auto Service, and our technicians can take a look.
Your brakes are imperative to the safety of you, your family, and your vehicle, and during winter, your brakes suffer through a lot of abuse.
Give your car a little extra TLC with a car wash.
Get your car’s oil checked. This is an essential aspect of preventive maintenance that should go overlooked.
Do you want your car to stay cool, while the temperatures rise? If your answer is yes, make sure a technician takes a look at the coolant levels.
Check out your vehicle’s transmission fluid.
Power steering is often overlooked, and we are here to remind to not forget this vital safety feature, as dirty fluid can fail your entire system.
Brake fluid is just as important as your tires, as degradation of this fluid can lead to unsafe braking performance.
It is one of the most annoying and frustrating incidents when we put our key in the ignition, and our car doesn’t start. To avoid these situations, mainly if you are stuck in a hot parking lot, get your battery looked at by a professional.
Sweat the small stuff. A thorough inspection of all your car’s nooks and crannies can save you money and trouble in the long-run.
