Is Your Car Really Ready for Summer?

Now that the summer months are here, a lot of us are going to be driving more – we’ll be taking road trips, staying at work a little later, and ferrying kids between practices, camps, sleepovers, and so much more. 

But before you hit the road, ask yourself: Is your car really ready for summer?

Summer driving means higher temps and more strain on your engine. For that reason, it makes sense to stop in to your local auto shop for a little bit of regular service and preventive maintenance. Otherwise, you could risk finding yourself stuck on the side of the road with the sun beating down on you with temperatures in the triple digits. That can be annoying at best and dangerous at worst.

With that in mind, here are a few simple ways we can help you get your car ready for summer:

2. What kind of guarantees do you offer on transmission repair? A reputable company is going to guarantee their work for a set amount of time and do it without a long list of disclaimers or legal notices. You may also want to
