Summer is a big season, especially for your Charlotte used car. Your car is expected to handle sun, heat, road trips, pets, kids, and whatever else your summer consists of. Now that summer has officially begun, it’s important that your used car in Charlotte is up for it. Before you start your summer activities and adventures, get your ride inspected and repaired at our Toyota Service Center!
Are there issues with your car that you think would affect your summer fun? Visit our Toyota Service Center in Charlotte to get your car back in tiptop shape.
Catch up on routine car maintenance!
When was the last time you had an oil change? Now that the temperatures are cranking up, you need to have your motor oil change. Heat can cause motor oil to deteriorate and become gritty. Gritty motor oil can clog up your engine and cause irreversible damage. Other routine car maintenance your car needs for summer includes:
Get auto repairs done!
Have you been putting off getting auto repairs done? Don’t neglect them any longer! Visit our Charlotte auto service center to get cheap and fast auto repairs. We have Toyota-trained auto service experts that can get your car back to like-new in no time. If your cooling system isn’t blowing cold air or no air at all, get it fixed before it gets too hot! If your car is overheating, you need to have your radiator repaired ASAP. Do you hear a screeching when your used car shifts gears? Your transmission needs repairs.
Keep your car clean!
Don’t let your car’s appearance succumb to the heat. Regularly wash your car and wax it every four to six months. A routine hand wash will keep dirt and grime off your car. Car wax acts as barrier, protecting your car’s exterior from scratches and sun damage.
You should keep the inside of your car clean, too! Detailing your car is easy. Use a vacuum to clean dirt and crumbs from the floor and upholstery. Remove any stains from the upholstery with upholstery cleaner or baking soda and warm water! Consider keeping your car organized, too. For example, you can use a shoe organizer to hang over the back of the front seat to keep items in sight and out of the way.
If fixing up your car for summer costs more than your Charlotte used car is worth, it’s time to sell or trade in! One of the biggest signs that it’s time to part with your car is if repairs are costing more than your car itself. Before you get to this point, bring your car to our used car dealership to trade in and upgrade to a reliable ride!
