Summer Maintenance Tips for Small SUVs

June 28th, 2019 by

Summer has arrived here in Texas. Our long, hot days can easily cause problems with your vehicle. Here are a few summer maintenance tips for your small SUV to help keep you running smoothly all season long.

Check your Battery

One of the biggest causes of vehicle failure in the summer months is a weak battery. The high temperatures can make battery fluid evaporate and can lead to internal breakdowns. Have your battery inspected to make sure it is ready to make it through the summer.

Check your HVAC

One of the worst things that can happen to your SUV on a Texas summer day is for your air conditioning to fail. Make sure you keep the sweat at bay by getting your entire HVAC system checked out. You should also have the cabin filter checked, too.

Catch Up on Routine Maintenance

If you look through your vehicle’s owner’s manual, you will find a recommended maintenance schedule. The best way to avoid major vehicle failure is by sticking to this schedule. If you have fallen behind, get your vehicle back on track.

Check the Coolant

Your SUV’s engine relies on coolant or antifreeze to maintain ideal operating temperatures. Check the fluid level to make sure it is where it should be.
