We’ve talked with you before about important safety tips to consider before you hit the road this summer. Getting your car serviced is one thing you should always do ahead of a road trip, regardless of the time of year, but it’s especially important to take care of this task before traveling in the hot weather. Taking this step could keep you from needing a towing or wrecker service if you break down—or from having an accident that requires a call to an auto body shop in Rock Hill, SC. At Carolina Collision & Frame Service, we’d like to remind you to check these things before you head out on the highway:
- Air conditioning: Air conditioning that doesn’t work properly makes for an uncomfortable—and potentially dangerous—ride. If your AC doesn’t work, it can also be a sign of a leaking refrigerant.
- Tires: Flat or blown out tires are expensive to replace and could lead you stuck on the side of the road. Make sure you get your tires inspected regularly and buy new ones when needed. Always make sure you have a spare tire as well.
- Oil: When was the last time you got your oil changed? This is important for the overall health of your vehicle.
- Engine: Your engine is the heart of your car and it needs check-ups to make sure it’s working properly. Just like your tires, if your engine breaks down, you could be putting yourself in serious danger.
At Carolina Collision & Frame Service, we want you to enjoy the rest of your summer and stay safe! But if you should happen to be involved in an accident, call our auto body shop in Rock Hill, SC for quality repairs on all makes and models. Our wrecker service is also available 24/7 for towing should your car break down.
