Get Your Vehicle Summer-Ready with Our Essential Car Maintenance Checklist

Published on Jun 2, 2023 by Talia Mushinsky

Summer is just around the corner, and it's time to think about how to keep your vehicle in top-notch condition during the hot weather. At Kunes Auto Group, we understand the importance of regular car maintenance, especially when seasons change. In this blog post, we'll provide you with a comprehensive checklist of car maintenance tasks to ensure your vehicle is ready to handle the summer heat.


Cool Down with a Cooling System Check

Don't let an overheated engine ruin your summer road trip. Make sure your vehicle's cooling system is working efficiently. Check your coolant level regularly, and consider having your system flushed and refilled if it's been a while. At Kunes Auto Group, our expert technicians can handle this for you, ensuring your car stays cool all summer long.


Stay Comfortable with Air Conditioning Inspection

Nothing beats a well-functioning A/C system on a hot summer day. If your car's air conditioning isn't blowing cold enough, it might need recharging. We offer comprehensive A/C checks and maintenance services to keep you comfortable and reduce driver fatigue.


Power Up with a Battery Check

Did you know high temperatures can be tough on your car's battery? Regularly inspect your battery, terminals, and cables for signs of corrosion and secure attachment. Our professional team can assist you with battery checks and replacements, ensuring your vehicle is ready to hit the road.


Keep Rolling with Proper Tire Maintenance

Heat increases the rate of tire wear. Regularly checking your tire pressure is essential, especially in summer. At Kunes Auto Group, we offer tire inspections, replacements, and pressure checks to keep you safe on the road.


Keep Things Smooth with Oil and Fluid Check

Regular oil and fluid checks are crucial for your vehicle's performance and safety. Our skilled technicians can ensure your car's oil, brake fluid, power steering fluid, and transmission fluid levels are optimal for summer driving.


Ensure Clear Vision with Windshield Wipers and Fluid Check

With summer thunderstorms, good visibility is key. We can check the condition of your wiper blades and ensure your windshield washer fluid is topped up.


Stay in Control with Belts and Hoses Check

Don't let a broken belt or hose spoil your summer plans. Regular inspections of these components can prevent potential problems. Our team at Kunes Auto Group is ready to inspect and replace any worn-out belts or hoses.


Prioritize Safety with a Brake Check

Your brakes are critical for your safety. If you notice any unusual noises or behaviors when braking, it's time for a professional check. Our expert mechanics can ensure your brakes are in perfect condition.


Light Up the Night with a Lights and Signals Check

All your vehicle's lights and signals need to be functioning properly, especially if you're planning a summer night drive. At Kunes Auto Group, we can ensure all your lights are working correctly.


Shine On with Interior and Exterior Cleaning

A clean car isn't just aesthetically pleasing; it also protects your vehicle's paint from damaging sun rays. Let us help you keep your car clean inside and out.
