The summer season is a time for fun road trips. Yet, driving around Carlsbad, CA in the summer heat can be challenging for your vehicle. One of these challenges is overheating. Overheating can cause your car to break down, resulting in costly repairs. Here are some tips to keep your vehicle in good condition this summer so you can have fun with your family.

Check the Tires

When planning a long road trip, you should check your tire pressure before going. Checking the tire pressure before a long road trip is important to avoid uneven tread wear or blowouts. You can find the recommended tire pressure level in the vehicle's owner's manual. Proper tire inflation improves fuel economy and your vehicle's handling. It also provides a smoother ride. Therefore, checking tire pressure before a road trip is crucial to protect your car and maximize its performance.

Check the Brakes

Brakes are essential for safe driving. At Lexus Escondido in Escondido, CA, the technicians at our service department can inspect your vehicle's brakes to ensure they are in good condition and ready for summer driving. Bring your car to our dealership if you live in the San Marcos, CA area when you hear unusual noises or feel your car vibrating whenever you press the brake pedal.

Oil Change

Fresh oil protects your engine by keeping it cool and lubricated. Bring your car to our service department in Vista, CA if it has been more than six months or 7,500 miles since your last oil change. We will also check the fluids, inspect your windshield wipers, and check your air and oil filters as well to ensure you will have a pleasant summer driving around San Diego, CA.

Before going on a road trip to your favorite summer destination, get your car ready by going online to schedule a maintenance service appointment at our dealership in Escondido, CA.
