As seasons change we tend to change with them. We might change our home decor to fit the time of year, swap out clothes to fit the weather better, but did you know that your car also reacts to the changing of seasons too? No, it doesn’t change out it’s clothes like us, but the weather and environment that you’re driving in can correlate to some repairs. Here are some summer repairs that most commonly pop up in this season!
AC FAILURE – this is most likely happening because you’re using your Air Conditioning (AC) a lot in the summer and AC systems have a lot of points for error. You might be able to avoid this by getting your AC checked in the months before the heat hits!
COOLING FAN – this repair also makes a lot of sense for the summertime. When the temperatures are hot your car doesn’t get as much natural cool weather coming through it. Because of this your engine cooling system has to work harder and is more prone to breaking.
WINDOW LIFT – similar to other summer repairs, you’re most likely using your window more in the warm weather. Because of the extra use it is definitely more likely to need fixing.
The best thing you can do for yourself in all of these situations is to get a general vehicle check before the summer months hit. This way, a shop will be able to spot something before it breaks on you. Preventative checks are one of the best things you can do for your vehicle and yourself this summer!
