Summer Car Maintenance Benefits

When it comes to summer vehicle maintenance tips, BMW of El Paso is on-hand to help. There are lots of ways your vehicle can suffer some potentially harmful wear-and-tear throughout the ‘dog days’. That mechanical damage can be prevented, however, by taking these simple steps toward ‘summer-proofing’ your car, truck, or SUV.

The Benefits of Summer-Proofing Your Vehicle

You have made your plans and charted your course for an awesome summer road trip with your friends and family. But nothing can destroy your getaway plans faster than a broken-down car, truck, or SUV. And your vacation plans aren’t the only potential casualties if you choose to disregard the benefits of summer-proofing your vehicle.

Regularly Scheduled Vehicle Maintenance Will Save You Cash

Putting off regularly scheduled vehicle maintenance is a mistake all of us have made. In our rush to get on the road, we don’t take the time to ensure our car is in tip-top shape. The next thing you know, your radiator needs replacing or your engine has burned up in the summer heat. Which do you think will cost you more? A gallon of coolant or a new engine?

Increase the Lifespan of Your Car

Keeping your car, truck, or SUV maintained isn’t simply to make certain you get a cheaper, hassle-free vacation. In the long run, keeping your car maintained extends its life for far longer than a minimally maintained one.

Road Safety

Nobody wants to be broken down on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere, or worse. Preventative maintenance can ensure you and your friends and family reach ‘Point B’ safe and sound. So, before you hit the road, take a few minutes to look at this short summer vehicle maintenance checklist:

Air Conditioning

  • When you turn on your A/C, pay attention to any weird smells, unusual sounds, or a lack of cooling. If any or all of these problems appear, you’ll need to get your A/C system examined.

Engine Coolant

  • Check your radiator or overflow tank levels to ensure your engine is being properly cooled. Using a coolant tester can confirm your water/coolant mixture is good.

Engine Fluids

  • Check your brake fluid, oil, and transmission fluid to ensure your car’s vital mechanical systems are properly lubricated at all times.

The Three ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

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

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the power levels of your battery to make sure your vehicle starts up whenever you need it to.

  • Blades

    Make sure your windshield wiper blades are in excellent shape and not jumping across your dry windshield or leaving a trail of water on a wet one.
