As your local automotive dealership, we want to provide our drivers with some quick and simple summer care tips to help you stay relaxed and safe this summer.

Keeping cool is good for both you and your car, which is why we’re starting with the coolant system. This system helps prevent your vehicle from overheating and keeps your components working correctly. To ensure you don’t have any issues, you’ll want to frequently inspect your coolant fuel level as well as your hoses and coolant reservoir.

One of the most critical components in your car is the battery, which is especially susceptible to damage in the heat. Our service professionals can make sure your battery is securely connected and in working order. Our pros can also clean any corrosive buildup around the clamps and contacts.

Temperatures affect your tire pressure, and the heat is no exception. Frequently monitor your tire pressure to ensure they have proper inflation. A properly inflated tire has many benefits from increased safety to better gas mileage and performance.

Finally, if your air conditioning isn’t performing like it used to, there could be an issue. Luckily, we can quickly resolve any issue at our service center near Los Angeles. We’re committed to helping you stay cool and safe this summer. Visit us today for all your summer vehicle maintenance needs.
