With summer weather heating things up we thought we’d come to you with some tips to keep your car rides and summer roads trips comfortable, fun and worry-free!
- Number one, make sure your air conditioning system is in good shape! You might not have noticed over the winter if your system has started leaking but especially if you have an older vehicle, get it checked by a qualified mechanic and fix any leaks before having your A/C recharged. Now you’ll be nice and cool wherever the road takes you!
- Number two, get your tire pressure checked. Warmer weather can alter the pressure in your tires and cause uneven wear and dangerous driving conditions. Oh and don’t forget about the spare! Especially if you’re taking a long road trip you’ll want that in good working order.
- Number three, stay prepared! We love the idea of hanging a plastic shoe organizer behind your front seats to give some key items easy access and protect your seats from kicking feet. Store activities for the kids, snacks, water bottles, paper towels, extra sunglasses and more so you don’t have to go digging around next time someone’s getting antsy.
- Number four, check your windshield wipers. You may not expect much rain in the summer, but what if you drive through a cloud of pesky gnats at sundown? You’ll want to be able to keep your vision clear at all times with quality wiper blades.
- Number five, teach your driving buddies some fun car ride games. "Twenty Questions," "I Spy" and looking for state license plates have always been favorites and will not only keep you occupied but might stir up some interesting conversation!
- Number six, have all of your fluids and battery checked! Weather changes can affect our transmission fluid, power steering fluid, coolant, and even windshield wiper fluid. Plus hot weather can adversely affect your battery life worse than you might think. Get your vehicle recharged and hit the road without a worry.
