Get Your Vehicle Summer Ready at Castilione Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram's Service Center

Summer is the time for days at the pool, catching fireflies, and road trips with the family. The worst time to find out you need to complete maintenance on your vehicle is when you experience issues on the road, so it's best to plan ahead and make sure your car is road-ready for the summer months. There are things you can do to prepare so you minimize the chance of a breakdown while on the road. The following are some suggestions for summer maintenance:

  • Battery: Check your battery's charge and, if necessary, replace it. Excessive heat can shorten the life of your battery, so make sure it's in good shape for the summer months.
  • Tires:Make sure to check pressure and tread on your tires before you hit the road this summer. Heavy summer rains can occur, and tires without enough tread are dangerous on wet roads. If When you check your tread, if you spot uneven wear, it may be time for an alignment.
  • Climate Control: Summer is no time to find yourself without air conditioning in your vehicle; bring your car, truck, or SUV in for a quick check to ensure your cooling system is functioning properly and to replace or add antifreeze/coolant as needed.
  • Wipers and Lights: It's important that your daytime running lights and headlamps are working all year round, so take this opportunity to check and ensure they're functioning properly. New wiper blades will ensure you'll have a clear windshield even when the summer showers hit.
  • Emergency Kit: Make sure you have summer essentials like bottled water and sunscreen in your emergency kit, so you're never caught unprepared.
