“Summer-ize” Cars for Warmer Temperatures

Posted on by Defensive Driving | in Rules of the Road: Driving Tips

It’s common for drivers to winterize their cars in preparation for the colder months of the year, regardless of where they live. Even if you don’t live in an area that experiences particularly harsh winter weather, there are certainly precautions that can be taken to ensure that your car continues to operate at a high level when the temperatures get colder and to make sure that you’re prepared for any less than optimal road conditions.

That being said, it’s also important to do some “summerizing” of your car as well. It’s not something that we always think about but it’s equally essential for the upkeep of your vehicle and your own personal safety. One of the first things you’ll want to do is get your cooling system checked to make sure it’s fully operational. This includes making sure that your radiator has the right amount of coolant and is free of any leaks or other problems that might lead to your car overheating.

Charging your air conditioner is something drivers who live in especially warm summer climates will definitely want to look into. Driving in a car without an air conditioner that’s working properly when the temperatures are nearing triple digits will make you uncomfortable at best and could drastically reduce defensive driving ability due to your lower level of alertness. You can’t be a safe driver if you’re consumed by the blistering heat inside your car, so it’s something you should take the time to address sooner rather than later if it’s an issue.
