Vehicle Service Will Save You Cash

Putting off regular car maintenance is an error all of us have made. In our rush to get started on the road, we don’t take the time to ensure our vehicle is in tip-top shape. Before you know it, your radiator has sprung a leak or your engine has overheated in the summer heat. Which do you think is more expensive? A gallon of coolant or a brand-new engine?

Increase the Lifespan of Your Vehicle

Keeping your car in good condition isn’t just to make sure you get a less costly, problem-free vacation. Over time, keeping your vehicle maintained keeps it healthy for much longer than a minimally maintained one.

Road Safety

Nobody intends to be stranded on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your vehicle maintained can make certain you and your family and friends reach your destination safe and sound. So, before you start your trip, take a few minutes to look at this brief vehicle summer-proofing checklist:

Air Conditioner

  • When you turn on your A/C, check for weird odors, unusual noises, or minimal or no cooling. If any or all of these issues pop up, you’ll need to get your A/C system checked out.


  • Check your radiator or overflow tank levels to see if your engine is being properly cooled. Using a coolant tester can confirm your water/coolant mix is good.

Engine Fluids

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

The 3 ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

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

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the strength of your battery to ensure your car starts whenever you need it to.

  • Blades

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