Car Maintenance Tip 15: Spring and Summer Tips

It is that time of the year when you can put on your flip-flops and hit the road. Admit it, there’s nothing like gathering the whole family for some long needed sunshine traveling. But, don’t let the heat get in the way of your family vacation. What’s worse than cruising along the coast excited to camp at the perfect beach spot when suddenly you find yourself pulled over to the side of the road with a broken-down radiator?

You finally bring in your car for routine maintenance, but it’s early in the morning and you are in a rush heading to work, so you forget to mention the grinding noise to your mechanic. Months go by and the noise is still there, even louder now, so you finally decide to bring in the vehicle to get it checked.
