HOW TO PREPARE YOUR CAR FOR SUMMER
With summer being right around the corner, it’s finally time to begin preparing to enjoy some of the warmer weather that the Lakewood area provides us with, and while you may feel prepared for scorching hot weather, your vehicle may not. To ensure proper vehicle functionality and safety throughout the summer months, allow our Emich Chevrolet dealer to share some preparation tips we’ve learned over our many years of experience and help service your vehicle the right way!
Tips For Preparing Your Chevy For The Summer
- Test Your Air Conditioning System – To ensure your air conditioning is up to the task of cooling off your vehicle, it’s important to either test it out before it gets too hot outside or before you take your car on an extended road trip. If the air does not feel cool, it could be a simple fix, as it may just be in need of more refrigerant. Additionally, to prevent your system from working harder than it needs to, and to improve the air quality inside your vehicle, make sure to have your air filters replaced by Emich Chevrolet when needed.
- Clean The Interior & Exterior of Your Vehicle – Give your vehicle a thorough washing inside and out. On the outside of your vehicle, be sure to use soapy water and when done cleaning, apply a coat of wax to further protect your paint from the heat. As for the interior, you can use a steam cleaner or apply a rug-cleaning spray to remove any particles from your car’s carpeting.
- Check Your Tire Pressures – As you may or may not know, colder weather can cause your tires to be underinflated, but once the weather begins getting warmer, it will actually reinflate, or in some cases, even overinflate them. To ensure the safety of you and the Lakewood area drivers around you, simply take a moment or two to check that your tire pressures are uniform.
- Replace Your Windshield Wipers & Top-Off Your Wiper Fluid – A dirty windshield can pose a significant safety hazard to you and other drivers around you. If your blades are in poor condition, allow our certified professionals to swap them out for a new set and top-off your windshield wiper fluid.
