Top Tips to Prepare Your Vehicle for Summer

Get your car ready for the summer months.

Road trip season is almost here! Now is the time to make sure your vehicle is ready to handle some sun-drenched driving. Summer’s high temperatures, flurries of dust, and occasional rainfall can take a toll on your vehicle and driving. To help ensure your car is ready for the summer roads ahead, be sure to follow these car maintenance tips.

  • Get your oil and oil filter changed

This is particularly important if your last oil change was a while ago. Intense weather conditions can put extra demands on your oil and oil filter, and breaking down in the hot sun isn’t an option. A clean filter and new oil make for a healthier, happier engine!

  • Top up the fluids

The fluids often get neglected in summer because motorists likely topped them up before winter. However, now is the time to double check the fluid levels such as transmission fluid, power steering fluid, coolant, and even windshield wiper fluid. Coolant fluid is especially important to keep an eye on before the heat of the season.

  • Test the tire pressure

Potholes and difficult road conditions wear on your tires and their air pressure. Make sure that your tires (including your spare) are properly inflated before hitting the road for a big summer road trip. Tires with low air pressure tend to wear out much quicker and will lead to inefficient fuel consumption.

  • Replace the wipers

It may sound ridiculous to get new wiper blades in the summer months, but summer isn’t always about the heat. When there’s rain or mist, you’ll want good, functioning wiper blades that are clean and effective.
