Before you set out on any summer adventures, it's important to tend to your vehicle's service needs and cross a few key items off your list. Fortunately, our service center is ready to help drivers in the Plainfield area with a wide range of pre-travel summer services. So, if you're curious about how to whip your car into shape for summer getaways, we encourage you to check out our five things to do before you travel.

1.) Check Your Tires

If you've had winter tires on your vehicle, now is a good time to switch them over to a more seasonally appropriate type like all-season or summer tires. This is also a good time to check your tire pressure, as warmer weather is likely to push pressure levels over where they should be.

2.) Check Your Fluids

Checking your oil and scheduling a change is important. Now is also a great time to check other essential fluids like brake fluid, transmission fluid, and coolant to make sure that your car has what it needs for long journeys.

3.) Battery Check

Cold weather is known to sap battery strength, so it's good to check your battery after winter to make sure that your battery is strong enough to get you through your various adventures without a hitch.

4.) Air Conditioner System Check

Working A/C can be the difference between a fun summer outing and a nightmare. We recommend scheduling an A/C system check to make sure that everything is working as it should after a long season of not needing it much.

5.) Windshield Wiper Change

Winter can be rough on your wipers, but you might not notice that your wipers are damaged until you need them and discover too late that they don't work as well as they should. We can check your wipers and fit your car with a new set if necessary.
