Replace Wiper Blades

Winter can be harsh on your wiper blades, making it a good idea to get new wipers for the summer so that you can see clearly through the windshield during rainy days. You can also shop for summer-specific wiper blades to maximize visibility.

Check Fluids

Regularly checking your vehicle's fluids is the best way to avoid issues while driving in the summer. Some fluids you should keep track of include engine oil, coolant, brake fluid, power steering fluid (if applicable), transmission fluid, and washer fluid.

Get An Oil Change

Since the summer brings hot weather, you will want fresh oil in your engine to ensure proper lubrication. Old oil can cause additional friction that will damage your engine slowly, resulting in reduced performance and additional fuel usage.

Test Your Vehicle's Air Conditioner

Nothing is worse than a vehicle with a weak or completely not working air conditioner, so check your vehicle's A/C system before the summer months. Also, during other seasons that don't require air conditioning, you should maintain your system by turning it on monthly to keep the refrigerant cycling.

Check Tire Pressure

You should check the tire pressure of your all-season or summer tires since storage can sometimes cause the air pressure to drop, which is also a good time to inspect the condition of your tire set.
