Throughout the year, taking care of your car’s regular maintenance is important. This is especially true in the summer when high temperatures and bright sunshine can wreak havoc on your car’s engine and interior. To keep your car running smoothly in warmer weather, we’ve put together some summer car care tips.
Stay cool in the heat. The temperature in summer is high, which means it’s important to keep both yourself and your car cool. That means taking care of your air-conditioning system and checking your car’s coolant levels. Bring your car to our state-of-the-art service center for a quick check up if you think either of these need to be fixed.
Protect your car’s dashboard. The hot summer sun can do a lot of damage, including aging your car’s dashboard. To protect your car’s dashboard from ultraviolet rays – and to help keep your car’s cabin a bit cooler – consider getting a dashboard shade. It will keep your steering wheel and dashboard from getting hot, while also protecting it from wear.
Check your tires. Regular tire maintenance is important throughout the year, and the summer is no exception. Make sure your tire’s pressure is within the recommended range and that the tread isn’t worn down. Also, make sure you rotate them, especially if you haven’t in awhile.
To get your car in the best possible shape for summer, make sure to get it the maintenance it deserves by scheduling a service appointment at Lowe Chevrolet.
