How To Get Your Vehicle Ready For The Beach

Get Your Vehicle Ready For The Beach!

Summertime swimming season is here, Florida! Are you ready to hit the beach, cruise the scenic highways, and leave your worries behind? We are! However, nothing puts a stop to the fun faster than car trouble, breakdowns, and blowouts. Your vehicle wants to enjoy summer, too, so let's take proactive precautions to ensure everyone has a good time!

 

Summer is a time for fun, family, and fantastic outdoor activities, but it also introduces unique obstacles for your vehicle. Specifically, the sun and the heat! However, the sun combined with the heat (and wind) creates other "down the line" issues too. Let's discuss a few things to look out for and how you can get your vehicle ready for the beach.

 

Is Your Vehicle Ready For The Road This Summer?

Check your tires - First and foremost, when getting ready for the summer fun, you want to check your tires and make sure they are ready for the road. The heat, sun, and sand combine to make some pretty rough conditions for our tire tread. Tires are prone to cracking in the extreme heat, and the sand acts as a natural abrasive, making things worse. Check your tire tread and make sure you can see easily separated grooves. A smooth tire is a bad tire, and you are you'll wanna visit your trusted auto repair shop of choice right away!

 

Check your fluids - This is critical! Just like us, our vehicles get thirsty, and the hotter it is, the more often you want to check your fluids. It isn't only your vehicle's oil you have to worry about; there is a whole network of critical fluids that keep you safe (and cool) on the road. Bring your vehicle in today and have everything checked out.

 

Block the sun's rays - There are several ways you can keep your vehicle cool and beach-ready this summer. Buying a sun shade or window cover is easy and really effective in keeping your seats cool and the inside of your vehicle less hot. Tinting your windows is a more permanent solution but improves ride quality. Check with your local laws and regulations before tinting your windows.
