Check Your Coolant Systems 

Keeping your model cool is paramount and incredibly important, especially as the summer heats up! You can do this by checking your vehicle’s cooling system as well as the level of coolant that is found in your model. You should make sure that there are no leaks, that the joints and connection points are in good condition, and that the hoses are firm and not soft.

Replace Wipers as Needed 

Summer needs summer rains, and as such your worn wipers are not going to cut it! You should make sure you replace them as soon as possible, otherwise you might have your vision obstructed with streak, making it hard to see what’s in front of you. These wipers are relatively cheap, though the more premier ones can cost a fair bit more. 

Check Your Tires 

Your tires are the most important parts of your vehicle, arguably. They are the point of contact between your model and the road, and as such should have the most attention directed to them to make sure you can have that contact without issue. Tires should be checked year-round, have pressures be correct, and be in good condition. This means treads free of nails, stones, etc, and no cracks or uneven wear. They should also be replaced as needed.
