In order to make sure that your car is properly maintained, you’ll want to check these 10 items:

  • Engine Belts – replace the belt if needed.
  • Coolant System – keep an eye out for leaks.
  • Wipers – make sure they aren’t worn.
  • Air Conditioning System – check refrigerant levels.
  • Essential Fluids – check brake, oil, power steering, and windshield fluids regularly.
  • Air Filter – buy a new one or have the old one cleaned.
  • Dashboard Sunshade – use a sunshade to protect against UV rays.
  • Tires – have them rotated and inspected properly.
  • Driver and Passengers – take care of yourself and others, especially during road trips.
  • Keeping the Car Clean – keep your car clean and in tidy condition.

Ensuring that those basic things are taken care of can go a long way in keeping your car in good condition all summer long.
