8 Ways to Get Your Car Ready For Summer

8 Ways to Get Your Car Ready For Summer

As Canadians, we wait what feels like all year for the summer weather to finally appear. As exciting as this is, there are many things to be done to prepare. Nexcar Auto Sales & Leasing wants to make sure you don't forget about the steps needed to get your car summer ready. Most people think it’s just changing your tires, but the truth is there is a whole lot more that everyone should do to ensure they are well-prepared for the hot weather ahead. Trust our Car Dealership in Toronto and follow this check list.

Switch Your Tires

As you might have guessed, switching your tires should be the first on your to do list. This is because when the weather begins to warm up, winter tires tend to wear quicker. When the temperature remains around 7 degrees, it’s time to make the switch.

Wash Your Car

In order to avoid damage to the interior and exterior of your vehicle, it’s important to remove road salt built up from the winter. Don’t forget the windows, wheel wells, and undercarriage.

Top Up Washer Fluid

The winter months take a lot of washer fluid, especially if you are highway driving and there is a lot of salt on the roads. This calls for a good fill up.

Replace Your Wiper Blades

With the warm weather coming also comes a fair bit of rain. This highlights the importance of getting new wiper blades so that your windshield can remain visible at all times. If your wipers are just smearing the water, its best to get them replaced ASAP.

Test Your Air Conditioning

Nothing is worse than the hot weather appearing and you reach down to put the AC on and it doesn’t work! This means that checking your AC before the hot weather sets in is important. If your AC is making weird noises or is not as cold as it should be, it might be time for a service call.

Time for an Oil Change

Sometimes it can be easy to forget about your oil levels. So as you are getting your car summer ready, give your oil a quick peak to see if it is time for an oil change.

Check Your Brakes

When you are sitting in stop and go traffic, your brakes can wear out more quickly. This makes summer a good time to get your brakes checked and inspected.

Keep Your Coolant Cool

Whether you check your coolant yourself or have a professional check in on it, it’s important that this part of your vehicle has the right mixture of chemicals. If you’re not sure how to do this, ask for it to be check at your next service call.
