The conditions that come with the summer months, such as heat and dust, can really take its toll on your vehicle. After the cold effects of the winter, your vehicle could already be at risk for a lot of different kinds of problems. You can lessen the risk of mechanical failure by bringing your car in for regular vehicle maintenance.
At Woodward Service Centre, we will make sure that your car is working perfectly so that you can enjoy your summer. With our summer automotive service, we will address the following:
Air Conditioning: If you don't use your air conditioning unit for long periods of time, such as during the winter, it can stop working when you try to use it in the summer. At Woodward, we'll make sure that it's working and ready to use.
Cooling System: Overheating causes the most breakdowns in the summer. Your cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled every 2 years. The level, condition, and concentration of the coolant should be checked much more often.
Windshield Wipers: A dirty windshield can cause eye fatigue and pose a safety hazard by lowering visibility. You should always get worn blades replaced, get plenty of windshield wiper solvent, and use season-specific blades.
Tires: You should have your tires rotated approximately every 5,000 miles. Have tire pressure checked once a month, and make sure to check your spare as well. An alignment may be needed if there's uneven tread wear or if the vehicle pulls to one side.
Brakes: Brakes should be inspected regularly according to the timeframe indicated in your manual, or sooner if you notice grabbing, noises, pulsations, or longer stopping distances.
Battery: Batteries can fail at any point during the year. The only way to detect problems with any accuracy is through the use of professional equipment.
And much more! The certified technicians will perform comprehensive vehicle inspections and ensure the summer automotive service covers all important aspects to keep you driving safe and efficiently. Call Woodward Service Centre in Barrie, Ontario to book an appointment today!
