When you buy your new pre-owned car from Bruce Cavenaugh’s Automart you want to make sure you take care of it, especially during the summer months, to keep it looking its best.
Here are a few tips of summer car care.
Car Brakes: Your brakes need to be replaced when the lining on your brake pad or shoe is worn down past the minimum thickness specified by the car manufacturer. You can have your brake linings checked at any normal service shop or at a brake specialist.
Wipers: With summer, there comes rain and thunder storms. Make sure you wipers are changed and replaced periodically. You don’t want to get caught in a storm with blades that dont work properly.
Car Battery: With the summer heat you cars battery can overcharge and over heat. The best way to combat this is to make sure the battery is cleaned regularly and that it is in securely. If you are not sure how to do this take it to a professional.
Car Tire Pressure: Tires are often over looked but in summer your cars tire pressure expands so it is important to check your tire pressure when it is in a cool place. Make sure to do this before you set out on any long summer road trips. Proper tire pressure for your car is also important. Check the recommended tire pressure label in the door jamb or glove compartment, or consult your owner’s manual.
