Get your vehicle ready for summer!

summer road trip

It’s almost July 5th! (If you’ve lived around Seattle long enough, you know that that’s when we usually start seeing the sun.) I know I’m ready for summer; are you? Better yet, is your car? Here are a few tips for a fun, hassle-free summer!

  • Check the pressure in your tires. Gases expand when heated: basic physics. When your tires repeatedly hit the hot asphalt, a poorly inflated one may overheat.
  • Recharge your A/C! Hopefully we’ll be needing this over the summer! As we head into summer, run your A/C to make sure it blows cold. If it doesn’t, your system might need a recharge. (We do that! Bring it on down to Daltons!!)
  • Do you have enough wiper fluid? How are the wiper blades? Summer drives mean lots of bugs on the windshield. You want to be able to clean them off!
  • If you’re going on a road trip, get ‘er checked out. A quick inspection of hoses, belts, and other fluid levels can provide some basic reassurance before heading out on an adventure.

Pay us a visit over in Clearview, for any or all of the above! Enjoy your summer!
