The Benefits of Summer-Proofing Your Car or Truck

You've made your plans and mapped out your course for a remarkable summer vacation with your friends and family. But few things can spoil your getaway plans faster than a broken-down car, truck, or SUV. And your vacation plans aren't the only potential casualties if you decide to neglect the benefits of summer-proofing your car.

Car Maintenance Checklist

Regularly Scheduled Vehicle Service Will Save You Cash

Putting off regularly scheduled car service is a mistake 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 in tip-top shape. The next thing you know, your radiator has sprung a leak or your engine has overheated in the summer heat. Which do you think will cost you more? A gallon of coolant or a brand-new engine?

Extend the Lifespan of Your Vehicle

Keeping your vehicle maintained isn't simply to ensure you get a cheaper, hassle-free vacation. In the long run, keeping your vehicle maintained keeps it healthy for much longer than a minimally maintained one.

Safety On The Road

No one intends to be broken down on the side of the highway in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your vehicle maintained can ensure you and your family and friends reach 'Point B' safely. So, before you start your trip, take a look at this short vehicle summer-proofing checklist:

Air Conditioner

When you turn on your A/C, pay attention to any weird smells, unusual sounds, or minimal or no cold air. If any or all of these issues pop up, you'll probably need to get your A/C system examined.

Engine Coolant

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

Engine Fluids

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

The Three 'B's'


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


A battery tester can check the strength of your battery to make sure your car starts up whenever you need it to.


Ensure your windshield wiper blades are in great shape and not jumping across your dry windshield or leaving streaks on a wet one.
