Even though summer is one of the best times of the year, it can also be a dangerous time for your vehicle. When you don’t protect your Dodge Challenger from the sun and the heat, you could find yourself stuck on the side of the road. Village Motors has some expert advice from its service center that can help you keep your car running smoothly this summer in Millersburg, OH.

Many people relax during the summer when it comes to caring for their cars, but don’t let this be you. Taking care of your car in the summer is just as important as doing so in the winter, if not more important. The summer sun and heat can wreak havoc on various areas of your Dodge car or SUV.

The cooling system of your car can take the biggest hit during the heat of the summer. Check the antifreeze regularly and top it off when needed. Make sure you bring the car to our service center to have the antifreeze drained and refreshed if it hasn’t been done in the last year.

You also need to keep an eye on the battery. Batteries typically last anywhere from five to seven years, but the heat of the summer can cause them to stop working much sooner than you’d expect. The battery fluid can evaporate, leading to the battery dying.

Don’t turn a blind eye on your tires either. They can crack due to extreme heat and the temperatures of the asphalt. Check them for cracks and low pressure as often as possible.

If you’ve noticed issues with your vehicle, bring it to the Village Motors service center today to have an experienced technician inspect it. We are located at 784 Wooster Road in Millersburg, OH. You don’t need an appointment, so bring your car or truck to our service center when your schedule permits.
