Summer means vacations and weekend trips in the car. The question is, is your vehicle ready for the heat? No one wants to be left on the roadside with a car that can’t take you to your destination and back. Here are a few things to check to make sure your car is ready before you embark on a summer of fun.

  • Check Tires.  Make sure the tires are inflated properly and there is plenty of tread.
  • Check all fluids. All fluids should be at the correct level to insure your engine runs properly.
  • Check filters. All filters should be clean and free of grime for maximum engine power and efficient gas mileage.
  • Check brakes. There should be no sign of major wear so you are able to stop when needed.
  • Check hoses. Look for cracks, holes, and make sure they are connected tightly.
  • Check the battery. Make sure the connections are tight and there is no corrosion.
  • Make sure the gas cap in on correctly.
