Helpful Summer Maintenance Checklist to Follow for Your Vehicle
Checking your vehicle to make sure that it is ready for a road trip doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to take it into the mechanic shop. A few things that you can consider doing yourself include:
- Schedule an oil change
- Check your tires
- Inspect your battery
- Check your brakes
- Test your air conditioning system
If you have checked all of these things and they are in good condition, then your vehicle is looking good for the upcoming trip! It is important to keep up with your vehicle’s routine maintenance like this in order for your vehicle to perform to the best of its ability. Be sure to keep up with these checks year around.
Another thing that you can do to prepare your vehicle for the upcoming summer road trip is to trade out the winter gear for summer gear. If you carried extra jackets or other winter gear in your vehicle during the cooler months, now is time to exchange them for something more fitting for summer! Pack some towels, hats and sunscreen instead!
