You might already be seeing ads for back-to-school sales, but that doesn’t mean the summer is over yet. If you still have some fun planned for the rest of the season, here are some summer maintenance tips to make sure your car doesn’t give up before you do.
- Change your air filter. Your car’s air filter should be replaced every 12,000 miles or so. This can play a key role in maintaining your vehicle’s fuel efficiency.
- Check your brakes. The most important safety feature in your car is your brakes. Make sure they are in prime condition before heading out on a summer road trip. If you hear any squealing while stopping, have your brakes inspected.
- Check your tires. As temperatures rise, this can make the air pressure in your tires increase. Check your tire pressure along with the tread depth at least once a month.
- Check your HVAC. Air conditioning is perhaps one of the greatest modern inventions and having it in your car is a must-have. Make sure your A/C is ready to go before you hit the road.
