Summer Car Care Tips for a Smooth Ride

Summer Car Care Tips for a Smooth Ride | Toronto, ON

It may be summer, but that doesn’t mean you get to put your car maintenance on hold. Here are a few important summer car care tips to remember during the hot months.

Keep your engine cool.

As temperatures rise, so does the chances of your engine overheating. To prevent getting stranded on the side of the road with an overheated engine, make sure your coolant system is working properly. Check the level of coolant fluid in your car and inspect the hoses and the coolant reservoir.

Give your air conditioning a check-up.

No one wants to get stuck in the summer without air conditioning. If your air conditioning isn’t working as well as it should, make an appointment to get it checked out here at Genesis Downtown. After all, you don’t want a minor problem to turn into a major one.

Don’t forget to change your wipers.

Rain happens even in the summer, which is why it’s important to ensure your windshield wipers are working as well as they can. If you haven’t changed your wipers in the last six months, now is the time to do so. Also, check your wipers for any cracks or chips that could hinder their performance.
