Summer maintenance targets the components at risk after winter that need to be at their best for summer. Winter conditions with sub-zero temperatures and ice can cause rapid component decline. Still, these components need to be in peak condition for reliable and safe driving in summer with extreme heat and adverse weather. Continue reading our summer maintenance best practices and services that we provide at Carolina Volkswagen.
We recommend that the staging point for optimal summer readiness is getting a multi-point inspection. This inspection is an excellent way to know what components have excessive wear and tear when seasons change. A certified technician follows the genuine Volkswagen multi-point inspection form to provide a bumper-to-bumper review of all primary systems, components, and safety devices. Any components found to carry an excessive risk of poor summer performance can receive proactive maintenance instead of responsive maintenance after a breakdown.
Inspecting the tires for summer maintenance is a wise decision that promotes the best handling and safety. A certified Volkswagen inspection includes a rubber condition assessment, tread depth measurement, and inflation adjustment. Tires with rapid and uneven wear can receive the maintenance needed for the best summer driving experience.
Nothing promotes a pleasant ride during summer as strong air conditioning. If your Volkswagen air conditioning system isn’t as chilly or as powerful, be sure to get the A/C system inspected and repaired as needed before summer.
Coolant fluid removes engine heat and prevents overheating. With extremely hot days on the horizon, and engine overheating more likely, be sure that your summer maintenance plan includes a coolant fluid inspection and exchange service if needed.
Batteries experience faster performance decline in extreme temperatures with extreme heat as the #1 threat. A battery check with load testing is always a good idea for summer maintenance. A certified technician looks for physical defects and measures cold-cranking amps/reserve capacity. Batteries not at peak performance can receive a battery replacement service to restore reliability.
