Our Subaru service center near Pittsburgh is here to help you with your vehicle maintenance, and that includes outlining vehicle components to check before traveling this summer!

What to Check in Your Vehicle Before Traveling This Summer

Many drivers put more miles on their car in the summer, a season that brings more heat, and those added miles and temperature impact your vehicle in a wide manner of ways, which is why maintenance is so important. Items to check in your vehicle this summer include:

  • Check Your Tire Pressure: Heat impacts all sorts of areas in your vehicle, and the tires are one to check. Having the right tire pressure means less of a chance of a blowout, but it also increases efficiency and the comfort of your ride.
  • Have a Working A/C: Obviously, with more heat comes a greater need to have your air conditioning working, and we can make sure that's happening so that you aren't just depending on your open windows for an escape from the heat.
  • Replace Your Car's Fluids: Your vehicle has more fluids running through it than you may imagine, and making sure you change your oil, have enough washer fluid, and are using the right coolant is vital in keeping your car running smoothly during the summer.
