Is Your California Vehicle Ready for California Summer Travel?

Is Your California Vehicle Ready for California Summer Travel?

Summer is finally on its way, and as COVID restrictions are loosened, we can expect more people on the road than have been on the roads in recent months. As you take off on your own summer travel plans, there are a few things to keep in mind to get your car ready. Keep reading to learn what they are, and then contact Law Offices of Fernando D. Vargas at 909-982-0707 if you have been involved in a car accident and require a free legal consultation.

Check Your Car’s Tire Pressure

When temperatures change, air pressure changes, and this can affect the pressure in your tires. You should make sure that your tires are inflated to the recommended pressure as listed by the manufacturer of the vehicle. This is listed on a sticker inside the driver’s side door (in most cars) and in the owner’s manual of your car. Of course, you can find this information online by searching for it.

Have Your Brakes Checked

If there is any strange noise, sound, or feel when you apply the brakes, then you should have them checked. A service professional can look at your brake pads, drums, rotors, shoes, and system to ensure there is no damage or leaks.

Test Your Car’s Battery

If you have not been driving your vehicle regularly, then it is entirely possible that the car battery is no longer fully charged. You can look at the cables to make sure they are tightly connected, or you can have a service professional do so. If you take it to the service professional, they can also test the battery capacity to see if the battery needs to be replaced.

Make Sure All Fluids Are Full

Make sure you have all your car’s vehicles at the right level. Some of the fluids you will need to check include oil, coolant, and brake fluid. You might also have brake fluid, transmission fluid, and power steering fluid, depending on your vehicle. If they do need to be topped off, make sure that you are using the right product to do so. Once again, this is something a service professional can do for you.

Replace Your Windshield Wiper Blades

No matter the quality, all windshield wiper blades will deteriorate as time goes on. If you notice that your wipers leave streaks behind when you use them, or that they are not as effective as they used to be at clearing your windshield, then they should be replaced. You will also need to make sure that your windshield wiper fluid tank is full to help remove debris.
