The weather is warming up here in St. Marys, which means it’s time to put the winter coats into storage, bust out the flip-flops, and, of course, prep your vehicle for summer. Here are a few tips for getting your car, truck, or SUV summer-ready:
- Get an oil change and tire rotation: The most common routine maintenance for any vehicle is the oil change and tire rotation. Depending on your model, your vehicle will need an oil change roughly every 3,000 to 7,500 miles. Now is a good time to schedule your routine oil change and tire rotation because it will allow our technicians to do a thorough vehicle inspection before your summer road trip.
- Test your AC: Things are about to get really hot. Before the temps reach the 80s, make sure your air conditioner is working properly. If not, get it fixed while there’s still a nice spring breeze.
- Clean your car, inside and out: If you haven’t already, take your vehicle through a car wash to get rid of all the road salt. Don’t forget to detail the inside as well.
- Take off the snow tires: If you relied on snow tires this winter, now is the time to swap them out for all-season or summer tires.
