Summer Preparation Tips for Drivers in Bellevue WA

Summer is coming and with it comes a wide range of weathers, mostly heat, and as such you should make sure your vehicle is prepared to handle it! There are many ways that you can do this, covering many different areas of your vehicle. Today we will be exploring three simple tips for you to employ. Continue reading below to see what we encourage you to do before this summer!

Check Your Coolant System

Your coolant system is one of the most important features on your model, designed to keep your engine properly cooled in the event of high temperatures. You should make sure that you keep the coolant levels high, that the hoses are in a good condition, and that you’re not suffering any leaks at connection points and similar locations. Additionally, we recommend checking the hoses by squeezing them in order to see if they’re firm and not soft.

Monitor Your Air Conditioning System

Air conditioning is the coolant systems of humans when it comes to vehicles, offering a ton of benefits for drivers that are out in the heat. If the system isn’t working properly, you’re overheating and that can be dangerous for your driving experience and health. You need to make sure the system is properly recharged, not leaking Freon, and similar. Having a qualified mechanic check your system is also a great idea.

Look Over Your Tires

Your tires are the contact point between you and the road, and as such, they are some of the most important parts of your model. As such, you need to make sure you have the right tire pressure, that the treads are free of stones, stray nails, and similar. All tires should have plenty of depth, no cracks, no uneven wear, and be in essentially great condition.

These are just three tips of the many we encourage you to employ when preparing your model for summer. To learn more about what you should do, or to have your model serviced here in Bellevue, WA, contact our dealership today!
