July 27th, 2019 by

The heat is on here in the Richmond, KY area, and with summer in full swing, keeping up on car maintenance is essential. Whether or not you have a new car like the 2019 Honda Passport, ensuring that your vehicle is up to the task of staying cool is extremely important during the summer months.

Here at Gates Honda, we want to help you get the most out of your vehicle during the summer months. That’s why we’re providing a few tips on how to care for your car and keep cool. Take advantage of our summer car care tips once you’ve found your new ride during our Honda Summer Spectacular event.

Summer car care isn’t difficult, and keeping up on it can make all the difference. One particularly essential area that you’ll want to keep an eye on is your coolant system. In addition to checking the level of coolant in your car, take some extra time to inspect the state of the hoses and your coolant reservoir. Your coolant system keeps your engine cool, which is why it’s so important to keep it in good shape. Our Honda service technicians would also be happy to check on this for you.

Your vehicle’s other fluids are also essential. Regularly check your engine oil, brake fluid, and power steering fluid. During the hotter months, your fluid is extra susceptible to outside influences like the heat and debris from the road.

Keeping yourself cool is also paramount. While driving with the windows down is nice, your air conditioning can keep you cool and alert while driving. If you notice your air conditioning isn’t working like it should, visit our Richmond, KY Honda service center today. You can also learn how often to change your cabin air filter to keep your AC fresh this summer!
