What are you waiting for? Call up some friends, pack your tanning lotion and your favorite drink and head out to the sparkling blue ocean water.
Too much exposure to the sun's rays is not good for your skin though as well as your car. As it can damage your skin cells so too can cause wear and tear for your car. High temperatures can easily dry up your car's fluids and it can also damage your car's paint. For helpful tips on car maintenance and tune up, visit a Toyota dealer near you.
Prevention is better than cure. This popular saying can also be applied to your car. Preventive car maintenance can save you significant amount of money and time and will allow you to enjoy your summer vacation. A friend working at Edmonton Toyota told me that I should be busy enjoying summer rather than worrying about my car.
A friend from Toyota dealer Alberta gave me these helpful tips on how to care and drive your car during the summer heat season and I am sharing this with you:
Have your car checked first by a qualified car technician or better yet take it to an Edmonton Toyota dealer for an accurate assessment. Toyota dealers' friendly staff will be happy to assist you. It's better to be careful than having car problems getting in the way of your perfect summer escapade.
Your car's tires are an important part of your car so you want to check it for any damages. If you notice a wear or tear on your tire's surface have it checked by a car technician if it needs replacement. Make sure too that your wheel is aligned properly.
Your car's air con is very important during the high heat of summer. Of course you want to drive comfortably and not suffer under the terrible heat of the sun while driving. Make sure your aircon will provide you a good service during summer.
Check your batteries and battery cable for any fracture, rust, or mud. High temperatures shorten life of a battery. If your battery is quite old or nearing the end of its warranty period considers replacing it rather than suffering a dead battery in the middle of nowhere.
Take a look at your belt, hoses and fluids. Inspect for damaged or worn belt. Make sure there is a correct amount of water and coolant.
Do you have a correct motor oil level? Make sure you do. During very hot temperature or if you need to haul a lot of heavy things and supplies it is better to switch to a higher viscosity or quite thick motor oil. To make sure you have the right motor oil for your car consult an Edmonton Used Car Dealers in your area.
Have your brake pads, lining, brake fluid checked by a mechanic or take it to a service center of your trusted Toyota dealer. Brake failure can be fatal.
Lastly, always bring an emergency kit with you containing a flashlight, extra batteries, flares, ropes, cables, reflective triangle and flares. Bringing an extra battery for your cellphone will also be helpful. After you have ticked all the tips above, you are now ready to have a worry free and fun summer drive.
