Summer Maintenance Tips

Posted at Thu, Apr 11, 2024 12:30 PM

Get your vehicle ready for summer and road trips with the help of Eide Chrysler St. Cloud!

With summer and road trips on the horizon, it is important to make sure your vehicle is prepared to keep you safe and get you to your destination smoothly. 

There are always routine maintenance repairs needed to keep your vehicle on the road, no matter what the season. But, here are a few things to get checked out and topped off before you hit the road:

  • Get an oil change
  • Check your brakes, and change them if necessary
  • Replace windshield wipers
  • Test air conditioner 
  • Check battery life
  • Check all lights
  • Check belts & hoses
  • Examine fluid levels and top off if needed
  • Inspect your tires - tire tread and pressure
  • Check filters - cabin, oil, fuel, and air filters

Since winter is now over, remember to clean your car, especially on the undercarriage! Wash off all of the dirt and grime, as well as road salt and ice-melting chemicals that are used on the roads to make driving safer in the winter. 

When you are traveling, try to park your vehicle in the shade, and keep your engine cool. Then, you won’t have to worry about needing to stop at unnecessary times throughout your trips, and the inside of your vehicle will stay cooler, to keep you more comfortable. 

If needed, you can always get a FREE multi-point inspection at Eide Chrysler St. Cloud, to make sure your vehicle is in tip top shape! 

We want to make sure that you stay safe on all your summer adventures and road trips! Assure that your vehicle will get you to your destination safely by running through this checklist before your trips.
