Scheduled Vehicle Maintenance Will Save You Cash

Putting off regular car maintenance is an error everyone makes. In our rush to get on the road, we do not take the time to ensure our car is in tip-top shape. 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 is more expensive? A gallon of coolant or a new engine?

Improve the Lifespan of Your Vehicle

Keeping your car in tip-top shape isn’t simply to make sure you get a cheaper, problem-free vacation. In the long run, keeping your vehicle maintained extends its life for far longer than a minimally maintained one.

Safety On The Road

No one wants to be stranded on the side of the highway in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your car in tip-top shape can make sure you and your family and friends reach ‘Point B’ safely. So, before you start your trip, take a look at this short summer vehicle maintenance checklist:

Air Conditioning

  • When you run your A/C, pay attention to any funky smells, odd sounds, or a lack of cold air. If any or all of these problems turn up, you’ll need to get your A/C system checked out.

Engine Coolant

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

Automotive Fluids

  • Check your oil, transmission fluid, and brake fluid to ensure your car’s vital mechanical systems are appropriately lubricated at all times.

The 3 ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

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

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the strength of your battery to ensure your car, truck, or SUV starts every time you need it to.

  • Blades

    Ensure your windshield wiper blades are in great shape and not jumping across your dry windshield or leaving streaks on a wet one.
