4 Ways to Get Your Car Ready for Summer

You’re ready for summertime. Visions of warm, sunny days have kept you going through the chilly winter and the rainy springtime… And, at long last, those visions are becoming a reality. But nothing can put a damper on a family vacation or a spontaneous day trip like a car issue. Follow our tips to get your vehicle ready for the fun that’s in store for you this season!

Replenish Your Fluids

Ensure that your car has the fuel it needs for those long summer days. Schedule an oil change and frequently check the levels of your coolant and windshield wiper fluid. Have your mechanic top off brake, power steering, and transmission fluids, too.

Tune Up Your AC

Your air conditioning system isn’t often used during the winter months, which means that glitches could have arisen without your knowledge. Schedule a quick service to ensure that everything is in smoothly working condition – because after all, nothing is worse than getting into a scalding hot car only to realize that your AC can’t provide you with respite from the heat.

Ensure Your Car is Rain-Ready

Texas summertime is a season of extremes. Replace your windshield wipers so they’re ready for torrential downpours, and check your tire’s condition to ensure that the treads won’t fail you in rough conditions.

Inspect the Coolant System

Summertime can take a toll on your vehicle’s hoses. Ask your mechanic to give them a once-over to ensure that they’re free of cracks, misshapen details, or discoloration. This preventative measure will save you time and money in the long run!

Summertime should be about lazy afternoons and spur-of-the-moment adventures. Schedule your appointment at Louetta Automotive today to ensure that your car will be ready for anything this season!
