Summer Maintenance Tips
Summer Maintenance Tips from Findlay Buick GMC Prescott
Summer maintenance is an automotive ownership best practice that ensures vehicles are in the best shape before summer with different driving circumstances. Several vehicle components are essential yet short-lived and need to be at their best in summer’s extreme heat. We have organized maintenance tips below that our customers can follow to ensure their vehicles are in the best shape possible this summer. We can also assist with any of the services that you need by scheduling an appointment at Findlay Buick GMC Prescott.
Multi-Point Vehicle Inspection
An excellent decision is for the summer maintenance focal point to be a multi-point inspection. A multi-point vehicle inspection includes all primary systems, important components, and safety devices. We check everything, including the engine, transmission, drive belts, fluids, filters, controls, lights, exhaust, suspension/steering, and more! Getting a certified technician to complete the inspection is the best bet because they have an expert’s knowledge of vehicles just like yours.
A/C Service & Repair
Don’t wait until the first real scorcher to find out that the A/C isn’t working properly. Test the A/C before summer to see if it generates a powerful chilly breeze for when you need it most. Noticing warmer air or reduced airflow are the telltale indicators that you are dealing with a faulty A/C component. Never fret because we can fix the problem, starting with an A/C inspection.
Automotive engineers working for all major brands know that extreme heat is the #1 threat to battery performance and life. The summer heat in Prescott, AZ ensures that batteries live a much shorter life than those in mild climates, which calls for your summer maintenance to include battery inspection with load testing. Batteries not performing at specs should be replaced on the spot due to imminent failure risk.
Windshield Wiper Blades
Windshield wiper blades need to be at their best for safety when it rains, but the blades only last for a year before losing integrity. It’s a good idea to check old wiper blades and replace them if needed before summer. Wiper blades that are due for replacement are damaged, leaving streaks, or more than one year old.
