5 Things to Do to Get Your Car Summer Ready

car ready for summertime

Summer is just around the corner - time for long road trips and fun vacations. If you’re planning to hit the road this year, make sure your car is ready with these tips:

  • Check the wheel alignment

Do you have a problem driving straight ahead when the steering wheel is centered? Or does your car pull to one side? It’s time to check the wheel alignment. Bring your car in to one of our repair shops. We've got a great discount on our 4-wheel alignment services.

  • Check your brakes

Check your brakes before you get out on the road. If you're not braking smoothly, or if you hear a squeaking noise just before the car stops, it’s probably time to repair or replace your brakes. Bring your car in for a quick inspection. We’ll check the pads and rotors to make sure they’re functioning well. Our full brake inspection is also free of charge. Plus, if your car was scheduled for a brake job and we notice that the brake rotors need replacing, we will not charge you for the additional labor.

  • Tires and rotation

Tires need to have good tread for safe traveling. How can you know if the tread is worn? There are little flat rubber bars that run down inside the tread. If you can see those bars easily, it's probably time to replace your tires. If the tread is fine, but the tires weren't rotated after 5,000 miles, bring your car into one of our auto repair shops in Virginia Beach. We’re now offering free tire rotation with every oil change!

  • Check your car’s battery

Winters can be harsh on your car battery. The cold can cause quick deterioration. Does it take time for the car to start? Or has it been more than 4 years since you replaced the battery? It’s time you bring the vehicle in for a quick service.

  • Change your oil

If the oil is black and gritty, it’s time to change it. If the engine sounds louder than usual, bring your car in for an oil change. We'll also rotate your tires, check the battery and take care of general summer maintenance.
