With summer just around the corner, it is time to make sure your vehicle is ready for all the fun things you plan for this summer. 

Get the air conditioning checked

Take a test drive and make sure the a/c is working great. If you notice it isn’t getting cold enough, it’s time for a service check. If you are getting an oil change soon, they can check your a/c at the same time. 

Replace your windshield wiper

Summer brings with it storms and some heavy rains. Having good windshield wipers makes it much easier to survive driving under less than ideal conditions. Many auto parts stores will install them for free with a drive-up visit and purchase. Also, check the windshield washer fluid. Lots of bugs hit the windshield in the summer. 

Check the tires

Once you have taken off your winter snow tires, it’s time to make sure your summer tires are in good condition. Check the air pressure and the treads before you go off on any summer adventures. 

Top off the fluids

Make sure all your fluids are topped off. Check the transmission antifreeze and brake fluids.
