Regular car maintenance is the key to keeping your vehicle driving safely for years to come. The easiest way to keep on top of car maintenance is to think of it seasonally — or better yet, just schedule an appointment at Fred Caldwell Chevrolet and let us take care of it.
Here are our summer car care tips — and what we’ll look out for when you bring your vehicle in for maintenance:
- Oil change: First and foremost, you need to keep up with your oil changes. We’ll also rotate your tires while we’re at it and give your vehicle a thorough inspection to recommend any other type of service.
- Test your battery: Cold temperatures can be rough on your battery, but that doesn’t mean heat is great either. We’ll make sure your battery stays in perfect all summer long.
- Check your fluid levels, especially your coolant: When you bring your vehicle in for maintenance, we will top off fluids like power steering fluid, windshield wiper fluid and coolant. You should check these regularly to make sure you don’t have any leaks. Coolant is especially important during the hot summer months.
- Inspect your brakes and tires: Two of your vehicle’s most crucial components are brakes and tires. If your brakes are squealing or if you notice issues with tire pressure or alignment, it is better to let us inspect them now than suffer the consequences later.
