Summer Care Tips for Your Mistubishi Vehicle

May 18th, 2018 by

Whether you have a new 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander or an older model that you’ve loved for years, it’s important to take care of your vehicle. With summer fast approaching here in Clarksville, IN, we’ve come up with a few summer care tips for your Mitsubishi model.

One of the most critical parts of your car is its battery and the heat during the summer months isn’t always kind to it. Both heat and vibration can wear heavily on your battery. We recommend that you make sure your battery is secured and that you store it in a temperature controlled environment as often as possible. Now is also a great time to clean any dirt and corrosion that may be on your battery. Remove the clamps before cleaning and wipe away any debris and dirt. You should also routinely check to make sure your battery’s fluid levels are proper as heat causes the fluid to evaporate faster in the summer.

Check to make sure that your tires are properly inflated. Under-inflated tires are more susceptible to damage and risk of blowing out, especially on hot roads. Now is also a great time to get your tires rotated to ensure even wear. And while you’re at it, consider an oil change. It’s been a long winter, and your car’s oil may be in need of a change. We can help with both here at Mitsubishi Store Clarksville. Simply schedule a service appointment right from our website.

Finally, prepare for any emergency or situation. It’s recommended that you make sure your vehicle is stocked with an emergency kit. Your emergency kit should include items like water, jumper cables, flashlight, first-aid kit, and hand tools for small repairs.
