Make Sure You Prep Your Vehicle for Summer Driving with a Service Check


The summer time is coming and it's always the right time for you to take stock of what services you're going to need to ensure you're longer days and summer nights go off without a hitch. Here at Penske Kia of Chula Vista, we have plenty of tips and services for how you should get your vehicle serviced for summer so you can enjoy the season to the fullest!

There are lots of services that you can have, and we advise always checking your service records or recommended vehicle service intervals to determine what you need. But, for summer we often recommend that those in Chula Vista and beyond stop in to our service center for the following:

  • Oil changes: making sure that your oil levels are right, and that your motor oil is fresh is always a good thing. You don't want build up getting into your engine, and oil changes with clean oil that's a fit for your vehicle gives you a smooth ride that keeps up efficiency, and cools and lubricates your engine, which is a must in the summer as temperatures will rise and get hot
  • Cooling system check: with the weather temperatures at their highest for months, it's essential that you check to make sure your air conditioning is working. You want clean air coming it, which means a cleaning of coolant fluid, and the hoses that filter the air into your vehicle. You'll thank yourself for doing it!
  • Tire rotation and alignments: when you rotate your tires and get wheel alignments you're helping your tires last longer, and giving yourself a smoother ride. Tire rotations reduce wear on front tires and save you money as the tires last longer, while alignments keep your vehicle and steering smooth and balanced
  • Flush your fluids: you should make sure all your fluid levels are right like power steering fluid, so you are protected against overheating and other warm weather vehicle issues
  • Battery check: making sure that your battery still has enough power and charge to start and keep going as you have your A/C on and more is also a good service for summer because the last thing you want is a car that won't start
