Summer Vehicle Maintenance Benefits

When it comes to car service suggestions for summer, Mercedes-Benz of Milwaukee North is here to help. As you may already know, there are plenty of ways your vehicle can suffer some potentially harmful wear-and-tear during the ‘dog days’. That mechanical damage can be avoided, however, by observing a few steps toward ‘summer-proofing’ your car.

Summer-Proofing Your Car: Advantages

You’ve meticulously planned and mapped out your course for a remarkable summer vacation with your friends and family. But nothing can spoil your road trip plans faster than a broken-down car, truck, or SUV. And your plans aren’t the only potential casualties if you decide to ignore the advantages of summer-proofing your vehicle.

Scheduled Car Service Will Save You Money

Putting off regular vehicle service is an error all of us have made. In our excitement to get started on the road, we don’t take the time to ensure our car, truck, or SUV is ready for the road. The next thing you know, 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 new engine?

Extend the Life of Your Vehicle

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

Safety On The Road

Nobody intends to be broken down on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your car in tip-top shape can ensure you and your family and friends get to ‘Point B’ safely. So, before you start your trip, take a look at this brief car summer-proofing checklist:

Air Conditioner

  • When you run your A/C, check for weird smells, unusual sounds, or a lack of cooling. If any or all of these issues appear, you’ll most likely need to get your A/C system inspected.

Engine Coolant

  • Check your radiator or overflow tank levels to make sure your engine is being effectively cooled. Using a coolant tester can confirm your water/coolant mix is properly mixed.

Engine Fluids

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

The Three ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

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

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the potency of your battery to make sure your vehicle starts whenever you need it to.

  • Blades

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