The summer is upon us, and if you haven’t brought your ride into Gossett Mazda for seasonal maintenance already, you’ll want to make time as soon as possible. Keeping your vehicle properly maintained in the summer can mean the difference between taking a successful road trip with the family and being stranded at the side of the road.
Check your A/C. Memphis gets awfully hot in the summertime, so it’s extremely important that your vehicle’s air conditioning is up to snuff. If you haven’t had your A/C inspected and serviced recently, make it a point to have that done before making it work overtime.
Be prepared. Sometimes, a breakdown is unavoidable. What can be avoided, however, is being caught out in the sun without the essentials. Put together a summer emergency kit, which should include all-season essentials like a spare cell phone battery/charger, flashlight, blankets, bottled water, and so on. For the summer, consider adding seasonal must-haves like bug spray and sunscreen to ensure your comfort and safety if you should be stuck on the roadside for a time.
There are a ton of different maintenance steps you can take before your big summer road trip, including recommended service for your tires, battery, and fluids. To have that work done quickly and correctly, stop into Gossett Mazda.
