Summertime is a season where many families and friends like to go out and about. Whether it's a vacation road trip or a quick trip to get ice cream, the hot weather can take a toll on our vehicles. The last thing you want to happen is for your car to break down amid your fun summer activities. You need to give your vehicle the proper attention during these hot months, or it won't keep getting you where you need to be. Truthfully, it does not take much effort to keep your vehicle happy. Here are the top 4 parts of every car that you should routinely check this season!
The worst thing that could happen to you this summer is having to drive without air-conditioning. If your AC is older, then leaking freon is not ideal. If you notice a Freon leak, bring your vehicle into Goose Automotive. We have the equipment needed to recharge your air conditioning system properly.
Other Vital Fluids
You should check all of your other vital fluids as they are essential in keeping your car operating. These vital fluids include oil, power steering, brake, and windshield-washer fluids often. These fluids are constantly being used throughout the year and should be replaced when needed. We can top off your fluids at Goose Automotive.
If you notice that your brake's response time is off or they have a spongy feeling, then it might be time to have them looked at by professionals. There is a good chance that you are due for some new brake pads. However, it is best to have our certified mechanics inspect your brakes for you to ensure your safety.
The summer is the perfect time to check your air filter since you pump out AC every time you get in the car. If your air filter looks old, then it's a good time to have it replaced. While you get your air filters checked, be sure to check pollen and cabin filters too. Those filters should be checked every summer as well.
Our experts at our shop can give you a complete vehicle inspection so that your car can be reliable and safe when you embark on your summer adventures. If you are in need of an inspection or any repair service, give us a visit at either of our San Antonio, TX shops.
