Regular Vehicle Maintenance 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 do not take the time to make certain our car is ready to roll. Before you know it, your radiator needs replacing or your engine has burned up in the summer heat. Which do you think is more expensive? A gallon of coolant or a brand-new engine?


Extend the Life of Your Car

Keeping your vehicle maintained isn’t just to make sure you get a more affordable, hassle-free vacation. In the long run, keeping your car, truck, or SUV maintained keeps it healthy for much longer than a minimally maintained one.


Safety On The Road

Nobody intends to be stranded on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your car in tip-top shape can make sure you and your family and friends reach your destination safe and sound. So, before you hit the road, take a few minutes to look at this brief summer vehicle maintenance checklist:

Air Conditioning

  • When you run your A/C, pay attention to any weird smells, odd noises, or minimal or no cold air. If any or all of these issues appear, you’ll probably need to get your A/C system looked at.

Engine Coolant

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

Engine Fluids

  • Check your transmission fluid, oil, and brake fluid to make sure your car’s moving parts are appropriately lubricated at all times.

The 3 ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

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

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the potency of your battery to make sure your car, truck, or SUV starts up every time you need it to.

  • Blades

    Make sure your windshield wiper blades are in good condition and not jumping across your dry windshield or leaving streaks on a wet one.
