Top Tips for End-of-Summer Car Care

It seems like summer just started, but time flies and fall is almost here. Your kids are heading back to school and the summer road trips are done. Of course, in the Downey area, the nice weather will continue for a while longer. However, now is a good time to start thinking about car care again. You might have seen our summer car care tips post a couple of months ago. But now that summer is almost over, let’s talk about some car care tips for the end-of summer.


Auto Maintenance to Do List

Here’s what you should do for your vehicle when summer winds down.


Begin with a Good Inspection – the first thing to do is give your car, truck, crossover, or SUV a detailed inspection. Your bets bet to get this done right is to take your vehicle to a professional Downey auto repair shop. Our ASE certified technicians check your engine, fluids, hoses, battery, wires, lights, tires, wiper blades and much, much more. If we find anything that needs some attention, we’ll get you taken care of as quickly as possible. This helps you find any possible hidden problems, so you can take care of them before they get worse.


Pay Close Attention to Your Tires – this time of year is also a good time for a close tire inspection. The heat can be hard on your tires, so look for cracks or uneven wear. Be sure to check the tread depth as well. If you’re like most people and you’ve been on the road more during the summer, your tires have been working harder. So, they need some extra attention. You can bring your vehicle into Glenn’s Auto Service if you need help inspecting your tires. If your tires are old, then getting them replaced now is the smart thing to do.


Inspect Your Wiper Blades – this is one of the easiest things you can do. If your wiper blades are getting old, then now is a good time to replace them. Although you might not use your wiper blades a lot her in Downey, you want to be sure they work when you do need them. Wipers can get worn and brittle in the heat, so make sure you inspect them to be sure they are still in good working condition.


Give Your Vehicle a Good Cleaning – there’s never a bad time to clean your car. And with all the dust blowing around during summer, now is the perfect time for a good washing, both inside and out. Wash your car, clean the mats, give it a good vacuuming, and toss in your favorite air freshener. This will help your car feel fresh again. You should also get rid of extra clutter inside your car. It’s a simple thing, but when your car is clean you usually take better care of it all around. And the better you take care of it, the longer you’ll have it.
