Regular car maintenance is the driving force that keeps your car, well, a driving force. If you drive your car an average of 12,000 to 15,000 miles a year, you can rely on the changing seasons to remind you of regular car maintenance. Here are a few summer car maintenance tips to keep in mind this year:
- Get your cooling systems checked. Keeping your engine cool in sweltering temps is crucial. Have Don Wessel Honda’s technicians flush your cooling system and fill your coolant to the proper level. You should also get your AC cleaned and tested.
- Test your battery. High temperatures can also be draining on your battery. Test your car battery to make sure it has the strength to last all summer.
- Check your tires. Before your big summer road trip, check your tires for any cracks or visible issues. You should also check your tire pressure and bring your car in for a wheel alignment if you notice it pulling to one side.
- Schedule an oil change. Regular oil changes and tire rotations are crucial for your car’s longevity. Before any summer trips, be sure to get your oil changed and tires rotated.
For the best car maintenance all year long, make sure to schedule a service appointment at Don Wessel Honda, where our certified technicians can give your car the care it deserves.
