Gear Up Your Ride For Summer

With summer right around the corner, it's a great time for road trips and a number of other activities that will put the miles on your vehicle. From running the kids to sporting events to planning a family vacation, there are a number of reasons why you may be on the roadways more than normal. Your trusted car dealership in mid-MO is here to help you (and your ride) get ready for your summer travels. Here at Spieler's Inc. we know it's important to keep your car running well, especially during the busy summer months!

Change Oil

Double check your vehicle manual, but the majority of vehicles need the oil changed anywhere from 3,000 - 5,000 miles. When getting your oil changed, ensure your oil filter is replaced as well - this can help to remove dirt and grime that builds up inside your engine. For smooth travels this summer, be sure your oil is changed on a regular basis!

Check Cooling System

Your cooling system level, condition, and concentration should be checked on a regular basis, as well. This can help keep your vehicle running in tip top shape, especially during the hot summer months. With the excess heat, your vehicle works extra hard to run and it's important to keep the cooling system properly filled.

Think Cool Air

Before the temperature gets too much hotter, be sure your air conditioning system is up to par. Whether you're driving to and from work or on a long road trip, the lack of air conditioning can put a damper on your plans on a hot summers day. Here at Spieler's Inc., we offer an air conditioning system check which includes a refrigerant level fill and pressure test for only $44.00.

Replace Tires

It's important to keep your tires rotated on a regular basis. While we're talking about tires, be sure to inspect your tire wear on a regular basis. There should be more than 2/32 of an inch in your tire tread. If you are nearing this point, it's time to buy new tires.

Check Battery Charge

That last thing you want to experience in the hot summer months is a dead battery. Keep your battery charged up and double check it on a regular basis to ensure it is not running low. Before heading out on a long road trip, hook your battery up to a charger to make sure it has adequate charge to get you to and from your destination, and more!

Inspect Windshield Wipers

The summer heat brings about thunder storms on a regular basis. Be sure to take a close look at your windshield wipers before summer starts. Inspect the rubber for any cracks and rips. If you notice any signs of wear, it's time to replace your wipers for a clear view, while driving this summer.

You're now ready to ensure your ride is in tip top shape, before the summer travel season kicks off. Whether you're running to baseball games or taking a road trip out of the state, bring your ride in for regular maintenance and to ensure it's ready to handle all of your travel needs. Before you head out on your next trip, bring your ride by the best car dealership in California, Missouri! We'll get you fixed up and ready to take on your busy summer schedule!
