When it comes to summer car service tips, Mercedes-Benz of Boerne is here to help. There are lots of ways your car, truck, or SUV can experience some potentially destructive wear-and-tear throughout the ‘dog days’.

The Benefits of Summer-Proofing Your Car

You’ve meticulously planned and charted your course for a remarkable summer road trip with your friends and family. But few things can ruin your road trip plans faster than a broken-down car. And your vacation plans aren’t the only potential casualties if you choose to ignore the benefits of summer-proofing your vehicle.

Regular Vehicle Maintenance Saves You Cash

Putting off regularly scheduled car service is a boo-boo almost everyone makes. In our excitement to get on the road, we don’t take the time to make certain our vehicle is ready for the road. The next thing you know, your radiator needs replacing or your engine has burned up in the summer heat. Which do you think is more expensive? A gallon of coolant or a brand-new engine?


Extend the Life of Your Car or Truck

Keeping your vehicle maintained isn’t just to make certain you get a more affordable, hassle-free vacation. In the long run, keeping your car, truck, or SUV maintained extends its life for far longer than a minimally maintained one.


Road Safety

No one plans to be broken down on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your car in tip-top shape can make sure you and your family and friends get to ‘Point B’ safe and sound. So, before you start your trip, take a look at this brief car summer-proofing checklist:

Air Conditioner

  • When you turn on your A/C, pay attention to any weird smells, odd sounds, or a lack of cooling. If any or all of these issues turn up, you’ll need to get your A/C system checked out.

Engine Coolant

  • Check your radiator or overflow tank levels to ensure your engine is being properly cooled. Using a coolant tester can confirm your water/coolant mixture is good.

Engine Fluids

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

The Three ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

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

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the potency of your battery to make sure your car, truck, or SUV starts up each time you need it to.

  • Blades

    Ensure your windshield wiper blades are in great shape and not bouncing across your dry windshield or leaving a mess on a wet one.
