Sun’s Out, Fun’s Out!
The California heat is here, and with it comes the summertime fun! Families love to hit Yosemite National Park for a day-hike, Monterey's beaches for a tan, and our famed wineries to chill out. Whatever your favorite summertime activity, you can make it even better by ensuring your vehicle is ready for the road.
How can I get my vehicle ready for summer?
The best way to get your vehicle ready for summer is to have it examined by your trusted auto repair center. However, if you want to start the process yourself, we suggest examining your vehicle's fan belt (if it has a dedicated fan belt) and ensuring that it's tight. Check the freon levels in your air conditioning system and recharge anything if it needs it. Consider tinting your windows within legal limits; that makes a major difference in how enjoyable your ride is during summer.
My vehicle was in a collision, and the doors won't shut properly; hot air pours in!
Unfortunately, there isn't anything you can do about this personally, but don't worry, we have the answer for you! You don't need to purchase a new vehicle, but you do need to bring your vehicle to a trusted collision repair center. A certified collision repair center will examine the damage and the vehicle frame, helping you make a decision to solve the issue. Furthermore, they can examine the rest of your vehicle and see if the collision caused any other damage that might have affected your cabin air seals in other ways.
Meet summer prepared for battle, and get your vehicle ready for the heat. Consider purchasing some window tinting and make sure you have your vehicle examined for door seal issues. Your air conditioner runs overdrive during these months; help it work smarter, not harder!
