Our Top 5 Tips for Your Volkswagen’s Summer Preparedness

  1. Engine Performance Check: Now that the cold has rolled away, it’s a good time to check and make sure your engine’s still performing as it should. Our technicians can take a look at your air filters to make sure they’re not clogged, then check the PCV valve for buildup and corrosion. These can help increase your engine’s gas mileage and performance.
  2. Tire Inspection: A lot can happen to a tire over a year, so our experts can check your tire’s tread for safety as well as pressure. High or low tire pressure can cause flats or even blowouts, and tires with too little tread can be unsafe; we’ll make sure you’re protected.
  3. Battery Testing and Inspection: As batteries age, they can lose the capacity to charge the engine and receive power from the alternator. We’ll test the battery to make sure your range isn’t close to levels where your engine can’t start, and then we’ll look it over to make sure nothing outside the battery threatens your startup or drive. We’ll also give your exterior lights, like headlights, high beams, and taillights, a quick inspection as well.
  4. Cooling System Inspection: In the summer heat, the engine’s cooling system must work much harder to get rid of that excess heat. That’s why we’ll take a look at each component of the cooling system (radiator, water pump, thermostat, hoses, etc.) to ensure it’s running at full capacity.
  5. A/C Inspection: Is there anything worse than no A/C system in a hot car? We’ll make sure you don’t have to find out by looking over your A/C’s components.
