List of Summer Maintenance Tips & Services


  1. Inspect the Cooling System - You certainly don’t want your vehicle to overheat while on the road. That’s why you will want to make sure that your vehicle’s cooling system is in top shape. Be sure to check the coolant levels. Also, look for any temperature alerts on your vehicle’s dashboard. Finally, if you notice any smoke coming from your hood, be sure to visit our service center right away.
  2. Check the A/C System - Make sure that you have a cool and comfortable cabin during the hottest days of the summer. Take the time right now to check your A/C system. Turn on the air conditioner and check for cool air coming from each vent. Also, be sure to change out the cabin air filter. Finally, check for any moisture coming from the vents.
  3. Check The Tires - Your vehicle’s tires are important when it comes to road safety and driving performance. Make sure that you have the proper pressure levels on each tire. Also, check the tread depth to ensure that you have a proper grip on the road. Finally, inspect the sidewalls for any damage, such as cracks or bubbling. If you notice any issues with your tires, be sure to visit our tire center today.
  4. Battery Inspection & Testing - You don’t want to deal with any battery issues on your next summer road trip. Check the power level of your battery. Also, look for signs of a weak battery, such as dim lights or a clicking sound during start-up. Finally, inspect the battery for any signs of corrosion.
  5. Check External Lights - Now is also a good time to check the external lights. Make certain that all headlights, taillights, and fog lights are in working order. We offer genuine OEM Subaru replacement lights at our parts center.
  6. Inspect The Engine - Finally, you will want to inspect your engine for any potential issues. Take a look at the engine air filter and the PCV valve. Also, turn on your engine and listen for any strange noises. If you suspect that anything is wrong, then bring your vehicle in for a diagnostic check.
