Are you excited for road trips and sunny weather this summer? If you're planning on getting the most out of summer, you want to make sure that your Volvo is up to the task. At Volvo Cars Palo Alto, we make it quick and affordable to ensure that your vehicle is ready for summer driving. By considering five important elements of car service, you can enjoy clear skies and smooth driving this summer.

Find out why the top five ways to get ready for summer driving.

1. Oil Change

If it's been a while since your last oil change, it's worth double-checking that your oil is good. Hot weather will put extra strain on your oil and oil filter, accelerating the amount of debris and dirt that may enter your oil. Motor oil is an essential component for keeping your engine cool and running smoothly, so schedule an oil change to prepare for summer.

2. Double-Check Fluid Levels

It's one thing to check that you have sufficient wiper fluid for pollen, road debris, and dust, but you will want to make sure all your fluid levels are where they should be. Pay special attention to your coolant since you will need it even more to keep your engine cool during warm weather.

3. Check Your Wheel Alignment

If you're experiencing any steering wheel vibrations or pulling in a certain direction, it may be time for a wheel alignment. Wheel alignments not only improve handling, but they help maximize your fuel efficiency and keep your tires from wearing unevenly.

4. Check Your Brakes

Are your brakes feeling spongy or screeching? If so, bring in your vehicle for brakes service. Stop-and-go traffic and hard braking can wear out your brakes faster, and you will want your brakes to be working at their best for your confidence and safety.

5. Air Conditioning Service

You don't want to wait until a hot day to realize that your air conditioning needs service. Make sure that your air conditioning is working properly, and our service team can ensure that you stay cool and comfortable this summer.
