Mercedes-Benz Summer Vehicle Maintenance Checklist

When it comes to summer car maintenance tips, Mercedes-Benz of Beverly Hills is standing by to help. As you may already know, there are plenty of ways in which your car can suffer some potentially destructive wear-and-tear during these ‘dog days’. That damage can be prevented, however, by observing these simple steps toward keeping your vehicle ‘summer-proof’.


What Are The Benefits To Summer-Proofing Your Vehicle

You’ve meticulously planned and charted your course for an outstanding summer vacation with your family and friends. But nothing can wreck your holiday plans faster than a broken-down car, truck, or SUV. And your plans aren’t the only potential casualties if you decide to neglect the benefits of summer-proofing your car, truck, or SUV.


Scheduled Car Maintenance Saves You Money

Putting off regularly scheduled car maintenance is a boo-boo that almost everyone makes. In our excitement to get on the road, we don’t take the time to ensure our car, truck, or SUV is in tip-top shape. Before you know it, your radiator has sprung a leak or your engine has overheated in the summer heat. Which do you think is more expensive? A gallon of coolant or a brand-new engine?


Increase the Life of Your Car or Truck

Keeping your car in tip-top shape isn’t just to make certain you get a less costly, problem-free vacation. In the long run, keeping your car maintained keeps it healthy for far longer than a minimally maintained one.


Safety On The Road

Nobody plans to be broken down on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your vehicle maintained can ensure you and your family and friends reach your destination safe and sound. So, before you hit the road, take a look at this brief car summer-proofing checklist:

Air Conditioner

  • When you turn on your A/C, pay attention to any weird odors, odd noises, or minimal or no cooling. If any or all of these issues pop up, you’ll most likely need to get your A/C system checked out.

Coolant

  • Check your radiator or overflow tank levels to make sure your engine is being appropriately cooled. Using a coolant tester can verify your water/coolant mix is properly mixed.

Engine Fluids

  • Check your brake fluid, transmission fluid, and oil to make sure your car’s vital mechanical systems are appropriately lubricated at all times.

The 3 ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

    Remove the tires one-at-a-time and inspect your brake pads and/or shoes for any noticeable indicators of wear-and-tear.

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the power levels of your battery to ensure your car, truck, or SUV starts whenever you need it to.

  • Blades

    Ensure your windshield wiper blades are in excellent condition and not bouncing across your dry windshield or leaving streaks on a wet one.
