Nissan Summer Vehicle Maintenance Checklist

When it comes to car maintenance suggestions for summer, Mike Smith Nissan is on-hand to help. There are plenty of ways your car, truck, or SUV can experience some potentially damaging wear-and-tear throughout the ‘dog days’. That mechanical damage can be prevented, however, by taking a few steps toward keeping your car, truck, or SUV ‘summer-proof’.

What Are The Benefits To Summer-Proofing Your Vehicle

You have made your plans and charted your course for an amazing summer road trip with your family and friends. But few things can ruin your road trip plans faster than a broken-down car, truck, or SUV. And your plans aren’t the only potential casualties if you choose to ignore the advantages of summer-proofing your vehicle.

Regularly Scheduled Vehicle Service Saves You Money

Putting off regular vehicle service is an error everyone makes. In our rush to get on the road, we don’t take the time to ensure our car, truck, or SUV is in tip-top shape. The next thing you know, your radiator needs replacing or your engine has overheated in the summer heat. Which do you think will cost you more? A gallon of coolant or a Nissan-new engine?

Increase the Life of Your Car

Keeping your car, truck, or SUV in good condition isn’t simply to make certain you get a less expensive, hassle-free road trip. In the long run, keeping your car maintained ensures its longevity for much longer than a minimally maintained one.

Road Safety

Nobody wants to be broken down on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your car in tip-top shape can make sure you and your friends and family get to your destination safely. So, before you start your trip, take a look at this short summer vehicle maintenance checklist:

Air Conditioning

  • When you run your A/C, pay attention to any weird odors, odd noises, or minimal or no cold air. If any or all of these problems turn up, you’ll need to get your A/C system inspected.

Engine Coolant

  • Check your radiator or overflow tank levels to ensure your engine is being effectively cooled. Using a coolant tester can confirm your water/coolant mix is properly mixed.

Engine Fluids

  • Check your brake fluid, transmission fluid, and oil to ensure your car’s moving parts are appropriately lubricated at all times.

The 3 ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

    Remove the tires one-at-a-time and check your brake pads and/or shoes for any visible indicators of wear-and-tear.

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the power levels of your battery to ensure your car, truck, or SUV starts up every time you need it to.

  • Blades

    Make sure your windshield wiper blades are in excellent condition and not bouncing across your dry windshield or leaving a mess on a wet one.
