The Ultimate Summer Car Maintenance Checklist

The harsh temperatures and unrelenting heat of the summer months can be a tough time for your car. Roads are hot and everything underneath your hood is even hotter. If you don’t take preemptive steps to ensure your vehicle is ready, you may find yourself in a tough situation. So that’s why we wanted to put together a checklist of things you should do before the real heat of summer begins.

You don’t have to do everything on this list, but the more you check off, the better chance your car has of coming out of summer unscathed while also making sure you can drive in comfort and with confidence. Feel free to print out this list and cross off each one by one as you get them done.
[  ] Double Check A/C to make sure everything is working properly 
[  ] Have Your Air Filter examined to ensure it’s in good shape 
[  ] Get new windshield wipers 
[  ] Inspect coolant levels (fluids should be changed at least once a year) 
[  ] Get that oil change you’ve been putting off 
[  ] Know your tire pressure and make sure it matches with what’s recommended in your owner’s manual 


[  ] Go ahead and get a tire alignment and rotation while you’re at
[  ] Have an expert check your brakes 
[  ] Make sure transmission fluid is up to par 
        [  ]  Get a battery inspection 
        [  ] Make sure you have the right kind of tires – you don’t want to be driving around on snow tires 
        [  ] Repair any dents or chips in your car’s body 
        [  ] Keep it clean from and away from dangerous summer conditions
