Summer is finally here, which means you should start thinking about how to help your car thrive in hotter temperatures. Here are some summer car care tips to keep your car running smoothly.
Complete your car’s routine maintenance. Hotter temperatures mean your car is more likely to overheat, especially if you’re driving long distances this summer. That’s why you should visit Lexus Downtown’s service department and get your car’s oil changed so it’s fresh and clean. Also, make sure your coolant system is in working order so that it’s in peak condition to keep your engine cool.
Watch your tires. When the temperature outside changes, so can your car’s tire pressure. Make sure your tires remain in the recommended tire pressure range. That will keep your car riding smoothly and reduce the risk of an accident.
Replace your windshield wipers. Summer storms are on their way, which is why it’s important to make sure that your windshield wipers are in top condition. They should be replaced every six months to a year, so if you haven’t done so in a while, now would be a good time. You should also replace your wipers if they’re streaking the windshield or if there are cracks in the rubber.
