Summer is one of the most popular times of the year for traveling with family and friends. Whether you're going on a large vacation or driving to your favorite fishing spot, you want to be able to rely on your vehicle to get you everywhere you need to go. That's why we encourage you to get your vehicle serviced in the beginning of the summer, allowing you to take on all your favorite adventures and activities with confidence. To help you understand some key areas and services that your vehicle could need, we're going to provide you with some service tips that you can perform at home or have our expert technicians do for you in our service center.

  • Change Your Oil: Changing your oil is a good idea to do in the beginning of the summer because the intense heat can cause your motor oil to thin out, which can lead to dirt and debris making its way into your engine. Instead, we'll drain your old motor oil and replace it with fresh, clean motor oil, allowing your engine to perform at the highest level.
  • Replace Your Windshield Wipers: We're all familiar with summer rain showers. When the next unexpected rain storm happens while you're driving on the highway, you want to be able to see and drive safely. We suggest changing your windshield wipers to ensure that when unexpected weather hits, you'll maintain a clear line of vision from behind the wheel.
  • Make Sure Your Fluids are Topped Off: Besides the motor oil, your vehicle has many other fluids that should be monitored and filled, including the coolant, power steering fluid, windshield wiper fluid, and more.
