Don’t Get Stuck with the Summertime Blues!

Don’t Get Stuck with the Summertime Blues!

| By: Christian Brothers Automotive

There’s one very important thing you don’t want to forget on your spring and summertime checklist: Taking care of your car. This time of year a little preventive maintenance can go a long way. There’s nothing worse than breaking down on a road trip, miles from home, because of a vehicle problem that could have been avoided by having a professional do a preventive maintenance check-up or a tune up. Any vehicle breakdown, whether on vacation or not, is sure to bring on a case of the blues.

Christian Brothers Automotive offers more than oil changes and tire rotations. We offer a variety of automotive services that will keep your car performing and keep you off of the side of the road when you are headed out to your vacation or long road trip!

Be sure to follow your manufacture’s recommendations for oil changes. Your car to-do list should also include checking your tires pressure, having your AC system inspected and making sure your belts and hoses are in good shape. In addition to providing you with a courtesy inspection, the trained and certified technicians at Christian Brothers Automotive also offer scheduled maintenance that will help you avoid problems down the road.

In between oil changes and scheduled service, here are a few more things to keep an eye on before you hit the road:

  • Watch your fluid levels including oil, coolant, washer and transmission. You should be checking all your fluid levels on a regular basis.
  • Listen to your brakes. A rumbling or grinding sound usually indicates it’s time to have them checked. Taking care of brake problems sooner rather than later, will save you money n the long-run.
  • Check your tire pressure. Temperature increases can affect your tires. You don’t want too much or too little air on the hot pavement.
  • Scheduled tune-ups are always a good idea. The recommended time will vary on the make and model of your vehicle, as well as the age of your car. Be sure to check for this before you leave town, and avoid any problems with your car as you are headed out to have some Summer fun!

If you take care of your car, it will take care of you. Enjoy your spring and summer travels over the next several months. We look forward to seeing you when it’s time to change your oil, service your car or take care of any problems that arise.
