Get Your Toyota Ready for Summer

May 19th, 2015 by

Some steps to getting your Toyota ready for summer, such as removing your snow tires, seem obvious, while most people don’t necessarily think of other steps to take. No matter what you plan on doing during the summer, you need to make sure that your Toyota is in good shape and you are ready for any situation.

It is a good idea to take care of all your regularly scheduled maintenance before summer comes, especially if you plan on taking a road trip of any sort. Have a trusted mechanic who is familiar with Toyota vehicles take a look and check every crucial aspect of your car, including coolant/antifreeze, the battery, wiper fluid and wipers, belts and hoses, and tire pressure. Also aim to get your oil changed at this time if you haven’t done so in a while.

Plan for Emergencies

Although it is more pleasant to be stranded during the summer than the middle of winter, you still want to avoid that whenever possible. To do this, make sure that you have a roadside assistance plan in place and that you will be covered even when driving your Toyota across the country. It is also a good idea to put an emergency kit in your car, including basic first aid supplies, food, water, a flashlight, jumper cables, and basic tools.
