Gearing up for summer vacations and road trips is one thing, but properly caring for your car all the time is quite another, so here are a few simple summer car care tips from us here at Gossett VW Germantown.
Spring brought heavy rains, so depending on where you live odds are your windshield wipers were put through their paces in April and May. Worn wipers are a cause for concern, especially if you live in a wet climate. Consider buying a replacement set before thunderstorms arrive. A new set of windshield wipers is both cheap and easy to install at home.
Clean Inside and Out
It pays to keep your car clean both inside and out all year ’round. The hot summer weather can cause grime to melt and stick to upholstery, a problem that no driver wants to deal with. So, clear out any leftover fast food wrappers and other debris, then sweep out the interior and take care of the seats as best you can.
Once the interior is taken care of, wash and wax your car thoroughly to properly prepare it for summer.
Keeping your car cool under the summer sun isn’t easy. Fortunately, sunshades are relatively cheap and take just a few seconds to set up prior to leaving the vehicle. A simple sunshade can significantly lower the temperature inside the car!
