Three Tips to Take Care of Your Car in the Summer Months

Here in Bellevue, our friends and neighbors are no strangers to the heat and humidity. Your vehicle can also fall victim to the heat in many ways, and that’s why we recommend that you take a few precautions to extend the life and value of your car or SUV this season. Monitor these three areas year-round, and especially during extreme weather conditions:

  • Monitor your tires to ensure proper inflation before heading out on the road. Heat causes increased pressure to form inside of your tires. Make sure that your Subaru car or SUV’s tires stay inflated at the manufacturer-recommended levels outlined in your vehicle’s manual. We also recommend that you routinely inspect your tires for wear and tear, whether you plan to head off on a road trip or stick close to home. Tire issues can catch drivers off guard and it’s best to be prepared.
  • Bring your Subaru in for an air conditioning service or auto A/C repair. Our service technicians can tune-up your car’s air conditioning unit for a more comfortable commute. If your auto air conditioning unit breaks down, your vehicle may leak refrigerant which can cause additional damage to your car’s compressor and other components. Let us help save you money and time with a routine A/C check!
  • Schedule regular oil changes to extend the performance of your SUV or car. Over time, your engine’s oil starts to lose its viscosity and becomes contaminated with dirt and debris. By changing your oil at the manufacturer-recommended intervals, you can maximize the performance of your engine and reduce the risk of damaging your vehicle with old oil.

Schedule an auto service appointment at Michael’s Subaru of Bellevue to have your oil changed, A/C tuneup and tire check! We look forward to maintaining your Subaru vehicle for miles of adventure in the Sammamish, Mercer Island and Issaquah region!
