Summer means long road trips and spontaneous weekend adventures. As you hit the road this summer, here are some summer car care tips to help you take care of your car.
Check alignment and suspension
Before you take off on your next road trip, check your car’s alignment and suspension to ensure your vehicle is in top condition for your travels. Our service technicians at Bill Harris Auto Center can help you with any additional maintenance you might need as well.
Check tire pressure and tread
Tire pressure fluctuates with the weather, so it may be a bit off from the winter and spring temperatures. Check your tire pressure with a tire gauge and inflate them if they are not at the recommended pressure. Use the penny test to check your tire tread and get new tires if they have excessive wear.
Top off car fluids
Make sure your car’s fluids are at the correct levels. This includes your vehicle’s engine oil, coolant, brake, transmission, and power steering fluids. Change your oil and replace other fluids at Bill Harris Auto Center.
Clean interior and exterior
Keep your car clean and fresh! Vacuum the cabin to prep it for your summer adventures. Stop by a car wash so your car is shining clean and ready for the road.
