Keep your cool — tips for summer trips

You've worked hard and the day has finally arrived for that long-awaited summer trip. But the last thing you need is a blowout or an overheated engine putting the kibosh on your plans. Short or long distance driving in hot weather can be tough on your vehicle. We've got a few tips.

  • Make sure your vehicle is “hydrated.” Have your mechanic check important fluids, such as oil, coolant, transmission, brake, steering, and even windshield wiper fluid.
  • Check that your tires are properly inflated for the season.
  • Seek out shaded areas when parking during the day.
  • Be ready to keep your cool when the unforeseen happens: pack an emergency road kit and have a road atlas on hand!
