Summer Car Maintenance Benefits

When it comes to vehicle service tips for summer, Mercedes-Benz of Clear Lake is here to help. There are a lot of ways your car can experience some potentially damaging wear-and-tear throughout the ‘dog days’. That mechanical damage can be prevented, however, by administrating a few steps toward ‘summer-proofing’ your car, truck, or SUV.


The Benefits of Summer-Proofing Your Car or Truck

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


Regularly Scheduled Vehicle Service Saves You Money

Putting off regular car service is a mistake everyone makes. In our rush to get started on the road, we do not take the time to make certain our vehicle is in tip-top shape. The next thing you know, your radiator has sprung a leak or your engine has overheated in the summer heat. Which do you think will cost you more? A gallon of coolant or a new engine?


Extend the Lifespan of Your Car or Truck

Keeping your car in good condition isn’t simply to make certain you get a cheaper, hassle-free vacation. In the long run, keeping your vehicle maintained ensures its longevity for far longer than a minimally maintained one.


Road Safety

No one plans to be broken down on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your vehicle maintained can make certain you and your friends and family get to ‘Point B’ safe and sound. So, before you hit the road, take a few minutes to look at this brief vehicle summer-proofing checklist:

Air Conditioner

  • When you turn on your A/C, check for strange smells, odd sounds, or a lack of cold air. If any or all of these problems pop up, you’ll most likely need to get your A/C system examined.

Coolant

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

Automotive Fluids

  • Check your brake fluid, transmission fluid, and oil to ensure your vehicle’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 visible indicators of wear-and-tear.

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the potency of your battery to make sure your vehicle starts whenever you need it to.

  • Blades

    Ensure your windshield wiper blades are in good condition and not bouncing across your dry windshield or leaving a mess on a wet one.
