Regularly Scheduled Vehicle Service Will Save You Cash

Putting off regularly scheduled vehicle service is a mistake all of us have made. In our excitement to get started on the road, we do not take the time to ensure our car is ready for the road. Before you know it, your radiator has sprung a leak or your engine has overheated in the summer heat. Which do you think is more expensive? A gallon of coolant or a Nissan-new engine?

Improve the Lifetime of Your Vehicle

Keeping your vehicle in tip-top shape isn’t simply to make sure you get a more affordable, problem-free vacation. Over time, keeping your car maintained ensures its longevity for far longer than a minimally maintained one.

Road Safety

Nobody wants to be broken down on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your vehicle maintained can ensure you and your family and friends reach ‘Point B’ safely. So, before you start your trip, take a few minutes to look at this brief vehicle summer-proofing checklist:

Air Conditioner

  • When you run your A/C, check for strange smells, unusual sounds, or a lack of cold air. If any or all of these issues appear, you’ll probably need to get your A/C system examined.

Engine Coolant

  • Check your radiator or overflow tank levels to make sure your engine is being properly cooled. Using a coolant tester can confirm your water/coolant mixture is good.

Automotive Fluids

  • Check your transmission fluid, brake fluid, and oil to ensure your car, truck, or SUV’s vital mechanical systems are appropriately lubricated at all times.

The 3 ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

    Remove your tires one-at-a-time and examine your brake pads and/or shoes for any observable signs of wear-and-tear.

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the potency of your battery to ensure your vehicle starts each time you need it to.

  • Blades

    Ensure your windshield wiper blades are in good shape and not jumping across your dry windshield or leaving a trail of water on a wet one.
