How can I get my car ready for summer?

Precision Import Auto Repairs Blog

Summer is here which likely means you'll be racking up a few extra miles on your car, truck or SUV. This is the perfect time to take a few necessary precautions to ensure your vehicle is ready for the long travels and warmer weather. These services will not only keep your car in great shape but they will ensure that you and your family have safe transportation during the driving season. If you need any help conducting these services be sure to reach out to your local auto repair shop.

Have the brakes checked

One of the most important things to do is to ensure your brakes are in good health. With the many miles you will cover you need a healthy braking system.

Inspect your tires

Along the same line as the brakes is keeping tabs on your tires. Check for bubbling, cracked or dull rubber. Healthy tires are necessary for any driving, no matter the distance.

Conduct a coolant flush

You will want to have fresh coolant, AKA antifreeze, poured into your cooling system to prevent the interior of the engine and the cooling system pipes from overheating. The excessive summer heat can take a real toll on your car or truck.

Make sure all exterior lights work

This is not just about summer safety, but all year round. It is important that all of your car's exterior lights are working. This includes the headlights, tail lights, brake lights, parking lights and turn signals.

Keep a first aid kit in the car

If you're spending more time in your car there are greater chances that an accident may occur. Keep your car stocked with first aid materials in order to render immediate assistance should it be deemed necessary.
