How to Get Your Car Ready for Summer

May 16th, 2018 by

Summer is right around the corner. That means you can finally start wearing shorts and short-sleeved shirts. No more do you have to don hoodies, winter hats, and mittens. As you prepare for a vacation this summer, you need to do much more than just find a hotel, buy tickets, and pack your bags. You also need to make sure your Nissan Rogue is ready for all that the season will throw its way.

An important service tip from Fred Martin Nissan is to have the battery checked before heading out on a long road trip. Making sure your battery has enough juice in it to sustain a long, hot summer is important. No one wants their road trip sidelined by a dead battery, which might even need to be replaced following the brutal winter we experienced in Ohio.

It’s also recommended that you have the tires on your Nissan car rotated by our service department. When you don’t rotate your tires every 5,000-8,000 miles, they become prone to uneven wear. This can lead to needing the tires replaced sooner than they should be, putting a dent in your wallet and in your summer plans. If yours are in good shape, we’ll examine air pressure and adjust accordingly. 

While here, our technicians will also inspect a few other key areas, such as your bulbs, air conditioning, coolant system, engine belts, and windshield wipers.

Be sure to bring your Nissan Altima or Nissan Pathfinder to our Akron, OH dealership today for service that will ensure a smooth ride this summer! We are located at 3388 South Arlington Rd in Akron, OH and look forward to working with you soon.
