Summer is right around the corner! Although summer driving is generally safer than winter driving, the summer heat can be particularly hard on certain parts of your car, including the engine, cooling systems, and battery, while the summer sun can cause your car’s paint to fade. In addition to that, adjusting your driving during the summer will pay dividends: making shorter trips will make your car less likely to overheat, and being lighter on the accelerator will save you money at the pump as gas prices reach their highest point of the year. By following the steps laid out below, you can make sure your car runs better and stays in better shape during the hot summer months.
