How to Prepare Your Vehicle for Summer Heat

Just like how we need to prepare for summer -- breaking out the swimsuits, sunscreen, and everything in between -- we need to do the same for your vehicle. The rising temperatures can take a toll on your Audi, Volkswagen, and Porsche. However, the team at Dubwerx is here to ensure your vehicle is ready for whatever comes its way, including summertime fun. 

Here is how to prepare your vehicle for the summer heat: 

Let’ start with your tires. Your tires are one of the most critical components for the safety of you, your car, and your passengers. Worn or under-inflated tires can seriously impair your ability to handle and brake, which can lead to blow-outs. Also, the heat makes your vehicle wear down much more quickly. 
Brakes are important too. Winter traffic is usually much slower than summer traffic, which means your brakes are generally working extra hard during the colder months and will need to inspected generally during summer time. 
We can’t forget about your vehicle’s coolant system. As the name suggests, your car’s coolant system is responsible for keeping your vehicle cool. With all those parts working in your engine, combined with the summer heat, it is easy to see why a properly working coolant system is vital. 
There are approximately seven fluids in your vehicle that need to be checked regularly, and with the summer sun, your car can be in danger of dehydration without a thorough inspection. 
Windshield wiper blades -- small but mighty. Windshield wiper blades are usually working in overtime during winter, which means now would be an excellent time to get them replaced. Greater visibility on the roads means less stress and more safety.
